Gluten-Free & Vegan Peppermint Chocolate Chunk Cookies

There is a trend with me and chocolate cookies. I absolutely love chocolate cookies that are tender and sweet but also really taste the cocoa!

Christmas seems to be the time where you get endless tins of mediocre peppermint bark in varying shapes, thickness and more. I am starting a trend where we give out these cookies instead! They are still full of peppermint and chocolate flavor but will switch up the annual cookie or sweet give!

These cookies are so easy to make, soft on the inside with a brownie like crunch on the outside! The soft peppermint filling in the cookie chunks add a delicious peppermint flavor to the chocolate flavor of the cookie.
