After Eight Mint Patties

Now you can make your favourite after dinner treat easily at home. This treat is loved by everyone but can now also be enjoyed by anyone regardless of dietary preference since these are vegan, wholesome, and gluten free.



10 rather large patties

  • 60g / 2,1 oz cashews
  • 40g / 1,4 oz shredded coconut
  • 80g / 2,8 oz pitted dates (I removed the skin of mine too, just for looks)
  • A hearty pinch of salt
  • A few drops of peppermint extract/flavouring
  • Around 60g / 2 oz chocolate for dipping


  1. In a food processor or powerful blender process the nuts and shredded coconut until nut butter consistency. If you’re machine isn’t very strong there may remain some pieces of shredded coconut. As long as you don’t mind it yourself, it is no problem.
  2. Add the dates and process until you get a nice more or less smooth dough. Add the salt and peppermint to taste. Take it easy with the extract and add a little at a time.
  3. Divide the dough into 10 balls. Flatten and shape the balls into patties. Put the patties on a plate, cookie tray or such lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap. Let them stiffen up in the freezer for 15-30 minutes, until slightly cool.
  4. Melt the chocolate and take the patties out of the freezer. Dip the patties in chocolate and put them on the prepared plate/cookie tray and let the chocolate harden. Serve and enjoy! Preferably store these in the fridge.
