These are super easy to make and give you a nice minty chocolate treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about. I found this recipe from www.paleogrubs.com and it makes about 8, and I usually double it!
- ½ cup raw almonds
- ¾ cup dates, pitted
- 2 tbsp. unsweetened dark cacao powder This is the one I love on Amazon
- 1 tbsp. almond butter or even peanut butter
- 2-3 drops peppermint extract or better yet peppermint essential oil. (careful don’t overdo it)
Place all ingredients in a food processor on high until a dough forms. Don’t over process it, leave it chunky. Roll dough into evenly sized balls and enjoy. You could add unsweetened coconut shreds for a different twist. Store in an airtight container.
