  • 1 c. raw walnuts
  • 5-5 1/2 ounces large soft dates (about 12)
  • 1/4 c. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 t. sea salt
  • 1/4 t. baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t. mint extract
  • 2 T. chocolate chips optional
  • crushed candy canes optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pulse the walnuts just until they form a meal consistency.
  • Remove them and process the dates until they are broken down and have a paste-like consistency.
  • Add back the walnuts, along with the remaining ingredients (minus the chocolate chips and candy canes).
  • Process the mix until smooth and well combined.
  • Place a sheet of parchment paper onto a baking sheet and spray a light layer of oil atop the paper.
  • Drop the cookie dough onto the paper, making about 10 cookies.
  • Use lightly damp hands to mold the cookies into flatter circles.
  • Top with a few chocolate chips, if desired.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes until the tops look set.
  • Cool and sprinkle the crushed candy canes onto the tops, if desired.
