Raw Mint Chocolate Cookies – No Bake Cookies

Last night I had a wicked sweet craving and had some almond meal in the pantry so I decided to just make a little treat and this is what I came up with – Raw mint chocolate cookies! No bake cookies that are gluten-free and full of yummy ingredients.

  • Almond Flour/Meal (I used around ½ cup)
  • Pitted Dates (around 1½ cups, but add more if needed)
  • A handful of rolled oats (I used a muesli mixture which as muesli, sunflower seeds and oats)
  • Tiny amount of Pure Peppermint extract (like 3-4 drops)
  • ¼ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4-5 Drops of Sweet Leaf's Vanilla Creme (optional)
  • A few shakes of cinnamon and/or nutmeg
  • A few tbs of Raw Cacao powder
  • 1 tbs Raw Honey / Agave / Coconut Nectar
  • Either: Carob chips, cacao nibs, chocolate chips (as many as you've like. I put a few tbs in)
  1. Grind up the dates so that they are in small pieces. Add into a bowl along with the almond meal, oats, cacao and chips. Mix a bit.
  2. Add in the vanilla extract, vanilla creme, peppermint extract and honey. Mix with a spatula and then with your hands (it makes it a whole lot easier, even though it's a bit messy :)) Add in more dates and/or honey if your mixture isn't quite holding together enough.
  3. Take a small amount of the mixture and form into a ball, then press it between your hands to form a small cookie shape. Place cookies in a container and put in the freezer. You can also eat them straight away but they firm up a bit when in the freezer.
