Sprouted Brown Rice Cacao Crispy Mint Patties

Happy Valentine’s Day! Looking for a guilt-free sweet treat to make this Valentine’s Day? We suggest these delectable little mint patties. It may be a recipe you want to double…they tend to be addicting.


1/2 cup walnuts, ground
3/4 cup One Degree Sprouted Brown Rice Cacao Crisps
2 tsp raw cacao powder
Pinch of salt
2 tsp coconut oil
1/8 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp peppermint extract

Chocolate Coating:
3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
1/2 tsp peppermint extract


In a food processor pulse the walnuts until they become small crumbles. Add the Sprouted Brown Rice Cacao Crisps and pulse a few more times so they are slightly broken.

Pour mixture into a small mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients. Mix well.

Roll the dough into small balls, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and press flat with the palm of your hand. Place in freezer for approximately 30-45 minutes.

Melt the chocolate and stir in the peppermint extract. Set aside.

Once the patties have frozen, dip them one by one into the melted chocolate and return to the parchment-lined baking sheet. Chill in the freezer again until the chocolate coating has hardened.

Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
