TOTAL TIME :10minutes20minutes
16-18bites
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups raw walnuts
  • 4-5 tablespoons cocoa powder (I use 5)
  • 1 1/2 cups Medjool dates pitted (make sure they are juicy!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (plus more for garnish)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
DIRECTIONS
  1. In a food processor, pulse together walnuts and 4 tablespoons cocoa powder until they form the consistency of crumbled chocolate cookies. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until mixture is sticky and holds together; this should only take 10-15 seconds.
  2. Turn dough out onto a baking sheet and roll into whatever size balls you like. Mine are approximately 1 1/2" in diameter. Sprinkle with extra sea salt, if using. Freeze, gently covered with plastic wrap, for 20 minutes OR refrigerate for 1 hour before enjoying. Keep leftovers tightly sealed in the refrigerator up to 1 week.

    I loved your sentiment above about simplifying ingredients, LL! I’ve followed your blog for a long time and originally wouldn’t make most recipes because they involved ingredients that would be costly or inconvenient for me to acquire. Over the last year or so, I’ve made a ton of your recipes because they’re super approachable and usually have ingredients I keep on hand. Wanted to call out that I’d noticed the change and really appreciate it – you’ve honestly helped me find a love of cooking. Keep doing what you’re doing, you’re killing it!

    • Hey Gabrielle!!! Seriously this comment made my day. Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to share your experience! I totally agree–at the beginning of my career I was developing recipes for myself to play with superfoods, and frankly that wasn’t useful to most people and I wasn’t really helping them. And it wasn’t really useful for me either! So it means the world that you’ve noticed how I’ve simplified my recipes to make them more accessible. Please stay in touch! xoxo
