PEPPERMINT BROWNIE BITES

December 10, 2018 by Renee Tavoularis

PEPPERMINT BROWNIE BITES

Cool and refreshing peppermint pairs perfectly with rich chocolate flavors in these refined sugar-free brownie bites. The sweetness in this dessert comes from dates which are also a good source of fiber and antioxidants.

MAKES 20 BITES
20 MINUTES
VEGAN
GLUTEN-FREE

Ingredients

2 cups dates, pitted and soaked in warm water for 10 minutes and drained
1 cup raw almonds
⅓ cup raw cacao powder
½ teaspoon peppermint extract
Pinch sea salt
Crushed vegan candy canes, for garnish 

Instructions

  • Place the almonds in a food processor and pulse until a fine powder is formed, about 1 minute. Remove and set aside.
  • Place the drained dates in the food processor and pulse until they are chopped very small and a paste begins to form. Remove and set aside.
  • Place the ground almonds back into the food processor along with the cacao powder, peppermint extract and sea salt. Pulse 1-2 times until combined.
  • While the food processor is on, drop in small spoonfuls of the date paste, allowing it to be incorporated well until adding more.
  • Once all of the date paste has been added and a dough begins to form, remove from the food processor and form into 20 balls.
  • Place the brownie bites on a serving platter and sprinkle with the crushed candy canes before serving.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
