This recipe was inspired by finding some mountain mint on my walk in nature
- mint chocolate raw vegan power balls*
2 cups dates pitted
2 cups walnuts
2 tablespoons of cacao / cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of Carob powder (replace this with 2 more of the above if you don’t have)
4 drops of mint essential oil (Add to taste but it’s strong so only do a drop at a time! )
4 small sprigs of mint ( take the leaves off and throw away stalk)
I used two fresh mint and two mountain mint.
10 squares of dark chocolate I used 90 percent raw vegan chocolate but cacao nibs would also be great if you have them in.
Blend together all ingredients except for dark chocolate till a consistency that sticks together and then add the dark choc / nibs and pulse quickly... roll into small balls
This is the mint i found, I took a bit back to grow my own :)
