Peppermint Bites

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


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)


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.
