a bit out of a cocoa-peppermint power patty

cocoa-peppermint power patties

Loosely inspired by the candy version of peppermint patties, these cocoa-peppermint power patties give you all of the chocolatey and pepperminty flavors you desire. Plus, you can feel good about indulging in them!

  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 6 ounces dried pitted dates (the moister the better)
  • 1/3 cup shelled hemp seeds
  • 1/3 cup shelled salted roasted pistachios
  • 1/3 cup natural creamy almond or cashew butter, no sugar or salt added
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon organic peppermint flavor (non-alcoholic)
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt


  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor on low speed until well combined, but mixture still has some texture.*
  2. Extra-firmly squeeze and roll mixture by hand into 12 balls, about 2 tablespoons (32 grams) mixture each. Then flatten into patties.
  3. Ideally stash in the fridge for 1 week or freezer for 2 months. These are also awesome as on-the-go snacks — no refrigeration required for up to 1 day.


*Note: If necessary, add vanilla unsweetened plant-based milk by the teaspoon to achieve desired rollable consistency. However, if the dates you use are moist, there should be no need to add any plant-based milk!
