Thin-Mint Brownies

on August 25, 2012

■1 cup walnuts (120g)
■1 and 1/3 cups pitted dates (230 grams) (I highly recommend Sunmaid, because they’re softer.)
■1 tsp vanilla extract
■5 tablespoons cocoa powder
■A few drops pure peppermint extract (depending on how minty you want them… Start with less; you can always add more.)
■Optional: for even more chocolate flavor, add chocolate chips. Or add cacao nibs.
■Optional: tiny dash of salt (I always add this and recommend it.)

Directions: Combine all ingredients, using a food processor. (No need to blend the dates first; I just blend everything all at once. But if you use a Magic Bullet, you might want to do it in batches. I’ve not tried this in a regular blender and therefore can’t vouch for it.)Form into brownies or balls or bars… or even cookie-cuttered shapes!
