It’s the season for baking and I love cranking up the Christmas music and baking all the holiday goodies. And just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean you have to miss out on holiday treats...especially if you are gluten-free! These Double Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are gluten-free, made with simple ingredients, sweetened with coconut sugar, and the candy canes I used are organic, dye free, naturally flavored, no high fructose corn syrup! A total win when wanting to make wholesome treats with quality ingredients.

One of my favorite things about the holidays is all the peppermint flavors. And when you add chocolate and peppermint it’s basically a dream come true. I was originally going to make just regular chocolate chip peppermint cookies but at the last minute I decided double chocolate was the way to go. And I’m so glad I went that route because gooey chocolate and peppermint are the perfect combination.
