Raw Peppermint Patties

Little chocolate cookies with the coolness of mint, can also be made into balls or bars. For bars, add to a plastic wrapped bread pan, press down tightly, chill and then cut.

Raw Peppermint Patties


  • ¾ cup raw cashews
  • 2 cups pitted Medjool dates, about 18 large
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ tsp pure peppermint extract
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt


Add everything to a food processor bowl, process on high until coming together. Taste to see if you need more peppermint and or salt. Use a 1 Tablespoon Disher to make balls, roll in your hands to compact and flatten gently. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, chill for an hour to set up, then transfer to an airtight container, store in the refrigerator.

Makes about 24.




  1. Yay!!!!! One of the things I’ve been missing a lot since ditching dairy is a bowl of mint chip ice cream. This might solve that. Thanks. Lately I think you’re reading my mind… You’re like my craving master or something.

  2. Or our cravings are scarily similar 😉

  3. These look divine!
    Are they quite rich?
