  • Step 1

    Place the dates, applesauce, almond milk, and peppermint extract into a food processor or mixer. Make sure to blend all the ingredients well to form a thick paste.

    #SpoonTip: Make sure the lid to your food processor is tightly locked because otherwise everything might just go flying around your kitchen.

  • Step 2

    Add the coconut flour and the cacao powder to the mixture in the food processor. Mix again until a ball forms in the mixer/processor. The dough should look moist. If too dry, add a little more coconut flour.

    Take the dough out of the food processor and place into a bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips and then roll the dough into balls to make the bites. Eat immediately or refrigerate for later.
