No Bake Choc Mint Biscuits

15 May

This recipe came up on my Facebook newsfeed from ‘Looking through my kitchen window – Paleo / Primal’ and after sharing it on my wall and a friend making them tonight, I couldn’t wait to make them either!
I used my thermomix and it literally took me no time at all to make them.

You will need:
80 grams of walnuts
80 grams of medjool dates
80 grams of shredded coconut (I used flaked)
1 tbs of maple syrup
1 capful peppermint extract (I used about 4-5 drops of peppermint oil)
Chocolate for coating the biscuits (I used Green and Black’s organic)

Method
Place walnuts into TM bowl and chop on speed 9 for 10 seconds.
Next add your dates and chop on speed 9 for a further 10 seconds.
Add the remaining ingredients and chop for 8 seconds on speed 6.
Roll into balls, flatten and place on a lined baking tray in the freezer for around 10 minutes.
Dip the biscuits in melted chocolate and place back in the freezer for another 10 minutes or until set.
Enjoy!

      That’s great Kaz! Good idea, I am also going to try orange oil next time as my favourite flavour is Jaffa!
