Thin Mint Brownie Bites

This is one of those awesome recipes that I got from Chocolate Covered Katie, my favorite non-dairy non-sugar dessert website in the world. She's got just the best recipes in the world, and Jose absolutely loves them because he can eat just about anything from her website! Good news for him!

These are pretty simple, but can be a bit messy to make. However, they are totally worth it. Scrumptious!

1 c. walnuts
1 and 1/3 c. pitted dates (Sunmaid brand are softer and easier to use)
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 tbsp cocoa powder
A few drops peppermint extract (start with less, add more if desired)
Tiny dash of salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor. If necessary, add a bit of water and keep processing. Using a small cookie dough scoop (found at Bed Bath & Beyond for a couple of bucks), scoop up balls of dough and place onto parchment paper. Place in the freezer to firm for an hour. Once firm, store in an airtight container in the fridge. Enjoy!
