Raw-licious Peppermint Chocolate Bites


  • 1 cup of Medjool dates, pitted, soaked in warm water for at least 15 minutes, drained
  • 1 cup of mixed nuts (almonds, walnuts and pecans work best here)

  • 1 tsp of pure vanilla bean, ground
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon, unsweetened
  • 1 TBSP of virgin coconut oil, softened
  • Pinch of good quality
  • 7 drops of peppermint oil (use less, for a less strong minty taste)
  • Optional: Add 1 TBSP of nut butter for an even richer taste
  • Optional: Add a little bit of water or coconut milk if too dry


  1. Line your baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place all your pitted, soaked and dried Medjool dates in a blender and process.
