Raw Peppermint Patties

We came across Susan Powers’s Rawmazing website, and her Peppermint Patties just sang to us. We were inspired to adapt them into our own recipe!

Raw Peppermint Patties

Makes about 20 patties

For the filling

  • 1/4 cup, plus 3 tablespoons raw coconut butter
  • 2 tablespoons raw cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons xylitol
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint oil
  • pinch of sea salt

For the coating

  • 3 full tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoon xylitol
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder
  • pinch of crystallized sea salt


Place all filling ingredients into a bowl and mix together, working out the lumps of coconut butter and cashew butter. Blend until all ingredients are well combined.

Roll into a log approximately 1″ in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap and set in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes. In a double broiler, or over very low heat, melt coconut oil & xylitol together, add cacao and salt. Blend until smooth.

Allow to cool slightly. Remove the log filling from the freezer. Slice the log into thin disks. Work in batches, keeping most of the disks frozen, while you coat a few at a time with the melted “chocolate.” Dip each patty in the chocolate sauce, quickly, so the disks stay cold. Put coated patties back in the freezer and coat your next batch. Serve frozen.
