Peppermint Bites

December 3, 2018

These little peppermint bites are like a filling, delicious healthy version of a peppermint patty candy.  The mint lends a refreshing zing against the rich cacao, and the best part is that they are a cinch to make!  All you need is a high-speed blender or food processor; no oven required!

 

Get ready for a little taste of Christmas..

 

 

Peppermint Bites

 

Ingredients:

 

1-1/4 cups gluten-free oats

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

2-1/2 tablespoons raw cacao powder

1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract

1/4 cup raw cacao nibs or mini nondairy chocolate chips (sweeter option)

 

Directions:

 

1.  Food-process the oats and sunflower seeds until they resemble a coarse flour.

2.  Mix in the remaining ingredients.  Roll into tablespoon-sized balls and chill.  Store refrigerated in an airtight container.

These make great gifts!  They keep for 2 days at room temperature, or up to 10 days chilled.

 

Note: Add a little chilled cold-brewed coffee or espresso powder for a peppermint mocha flavor.
