Raw Thin Mint Brownies

St. Patrick's Day Treat

It's a clean version of a thin mint girl scout cookie! 

Raw Thin-Mint Brownies

  • 1 cup walnuts (120g)
  • 1 and 1/3 cups pitted dates (230 grams) (I 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.
Directions: Combine all ingredients, using a food processor or high powered blender. (No need to blend the dates first; I just blend everything all at once. If you use a Magic Bullet, you might want to do it in batches.) Form into brownies or balls or bars. Put in fridge for one hour.


  1. To anyone wondering how they taste - I can vouch for them and say they are DELICIOUS!!
