Raw Mint “Oreos”

 

It all started with a hankering for a peppermint patty. A week later, I have three delicious, perfected recipes that can combine in a multitude of ways. Chocolate wafer cookie? Thin mint? Peppermint Patty? Minty “Oreo”? You can make them all. And to top it off, I used leftover nut-milk pulp for the cookies.

All of the above were made from just three recipes. They are: Chocolate Cookies, Mint Filling and Chocolate Coating. From those three recipes, you can make all the options pictured!

I have been working on a recipe for a hard chocolate coating that will stay shiny but not be sticky. I have no patience for tempering and want a great taste. After a few experiments, I found a formula I love. And it works great for all of the treats above. The recipe is below. 

A quick note: at times, I find things for the kitchen that I just can not resist. One of my latest transgressions was this Mini Whoopie Pie Pan. I knew I would never make mini whoopie pies, but I could see the potential for raw food. It makes a great mold! Just pack the raw dough into the cups, freeze and pop it out. If you are into that sort of thing, this pan works great. (click the link to order one)

These looks so amazing! One question, in the first & third recipe, it calls for peppermint extract, but in the second it calls for peppermint oil. Is that correct? Is that a herbal infusion oil or essential oil?

OMG!! I love ALL your recipes and blog!! You are a pure raw genius and very creative!!! ;) Your site is rawmazing (plus ur recipes are WOW)!!!! :)

4 in one! You’re spoiling us! I think I’d have to go for the full-on “Raw Chocolate Covered Mint Oreos”
Great way to use up almond milk pulp too.

How many cookies will this recipe make? Thanks

Susan June 12, 2013 at 10:16 am

The chocolate wafer recipe makes 24. If you are doing the cookies that take 2 wafers, you will get 12.

What other filling can I put in instead of mint? How can I make a creamy and not to chunky peanut butter filling?
Thanks.

Susan June 12, 2013 at 10:29 am

Put in what ever you want. I would suggest you search for a recipe for the filling that you are looking for.

Faith June 12, 2013 at 10:31 am

wow Susan, ummy nummy!!!

Faith June 12, 2013 at 10:34 am

so, I know a lot of your commenters demand substitutions etc!!lol….. I try to appreciate what people have to share and do my own research for substitutions. But I also know you like a good challenge. so, I’m throwing it out there, if you are at all inclined……a carob version of this that will make a good coating. I love chocolate but it keeps me up at night!!!!!!! and find that carob, especially when paired with some other substantial flavor, like mint, is quite pleasant. thanks!!!!!!!

Susan June 12, 2013 at 10:53 am

Faith: Since both are powders, I would think that you could just substitute one for another. Although, I don’t use carob so am not sure about the bitterness of it. I would add sweetener slowly and taste.

Leslie June 12, 2013 at 6:12 pm

Oh my goodness these look so easy and delicious! I have made raw peppermint patties before but I like the way your version looks… very smooth and creamy. Can’t wait to try!

Aslana June 12, 2013 at 7:47 pm

Stop it! It’s enough to make you roll in pansies this recipe is so awesome I can wrap my head around it This recipe can’t be real. Forget everything. ill take these! I bet they freeze well too! Thanks for all the hard work to put this out there, I feel I’m a part of raw food elitests now!

Bel June 12, 2013 at 8:12 pm

Wow! We have a biscuit in Australia called Mint Slice which is like the choc covered oreo, but with one chocolate biscuit topped with a peppermint patty and coated in chocolate. I used to love these as a child, and now I can make a healthier substitute for my boys. Thanks!!!

Ida June 12, 2013 at 9:13 pm

This is pure food porn. Love it.

Shannon Murray June 12, 2013 at 11:56 pm

Oh, Susan! You have outdone yourself again! How do these 4 in 1 raw cookie recipe get any better than this??!! Thank you for always doing a 5-star job! I love that I can serve these cookies with your delicious Nut Milk recipes and be able to use the nut milk pulp!! Excellence on all levels!!

Shana June 15, 2013 at 1:41 am

OMGGG I will absolutely try these. Just ordered more cacoa powder. Cant wait for it to arrive so I can make these. They look amazing! :-) Perfect sweet snack.

Chrissy June 17, 2013 at 8:47 am

Oh I would love to make these, but we have a nut allergy (among others) in the house! I am not good enough with substitutions yet to figure out what to do but I will be saving this and trying to come up with an alternative to the almond flour/nut milk pulp. I will share this in the hopes someone else will make it for me so I can enjoy it as is somewhere else though!

Clair June 17, 2013 at 12:01 pm

I made the oreo mint cookies and they were a hit. They made exactly 24 wafers as you said. I did not have the nut milk pulp. So instead I processed walnuts, hazelnuts and pecans to equal 2 1/2 cups, so I had to add a little bit more coconut oil. I did not have the pan so I shaped the cookies using a shot glass. Probably a bit more time consuming but it worked. My kids loved these. They said they taste ‘better than oreos’ –and they are a very tough crowd to please! Thanks for this recipe it was awesome!

Abby @ The Frosted Vegan June 18, 2013 at 7:53 pm

Good/bad: I have everything to make this, so I’m going to need these in my belly ASAP!

Shernell June 24, 2013 at 9:10 am

I looked at this recipe and four times before I commented. What a great recipe ! Thanks for sharing !!!!!

Lissa June 28, 2013 at 6:36 am

Three amazing recipes :D
These all look so, so delicious.

Debby Burke July 9, 2013 at 1:37 pm

I have been wanting Oreos so bad!! I can’t wait to try these, I will be substituting coconut milk pulp and carob powder, I’ll try to let you know how it turns out. I think i will need less sweetner and maybe more moisture. We’ll see!

Debby Burke July 9, 2013 at 1:39 pm

OH, I don’t have cacao butter, what brand do you use and where do you get it?

Susan July 9, 2013 at 1:43 pm

There is a link to the cacao butter I use right in the recipe. Just mouse over it and click.

Kerry Hall July 31, 2013 at 1:41 pm

This was such a GREAT recipe! Very fun and easy! All my co-workers think I’m crazy because I eat “weird” stuff, but they LOVED these! I think the recipe made like 20 pieces but I ended up with maybe 4 after everyone devoured them, and I only have 8 co-workers, it was AWESOME! :) YEY! Thank You for the recipe! I will use this recipe constantly!

Cendrine August 1, 2013 at 5:54 pm

I’m going to make this chocolate coating to ice a cake, because some of the guests are allergic to other icing. When measuring the cacao butter, what weight would a half cup measure as, or do I have to chop it really fine to use a measuring cup?

Susan August 1, 2013 at 5:56 pm

You can chop it fine or melt it. :-)

Nancy August 2, 2013 at 10:36 am

Hi! I’m actually making the cookies but they don’t stick, so I can’t roll and flatten it… any tricks and/or is it normal???
thank you!

Susan August 2, 2013 at 10:45 am

You can try adding just a little water. But be careful, too much will ruin it. I would press them, not try to roll them.

Amy August 2, 2013 at 10:57 am

I made these this week! They were a hit at work. I used a cupcake pan instead (worked beautifully) and froze when the recipe called to “chill.” They taste like mint chocolate chip ice cream! So good!

Nancy August 2, 2013 at 6:45 pm

thank you!

Knittern August 13, 2013 at 5:17 pm

I am wondering if I can add more agave instead of stevia, don’t like the bitter after taste? Thanks!

Elizabeth August 13, 2013 at 8:56 pm

Just stumbled upon your site and can’t wait to make something … mmm mmm mmm!

Maria September 4, 2013 at 2:35 pm

Hi, I was looking for a thin mint patty type thing and found these recipes. I have essential oil of peppermint, and right now, and maybe for a couple weeks, I have living mint in the garden. How do I use this/these, and keep it as raw and as healthy as possible?

Thanks,

Maria

Susan September 4, 2013 at 2:43 pm

I would make sure your peppermint essential oil is food grade. Then substitute to taste. :-)

Hollie September 7, 2013 at 5:15 am

Wow… My friend and I made these today with my 2 year lending a helping hand!! They are so good! We adjusted a little by using half half coconut and blended hazelnuts for the filling. Can’t wait for our next rawmazing rawoff. Thanks

Kristy September 7, 2013 at 9:26 am

I made this recipe and actually layered all 3 to make a mint slice. I put the wafer on the bottom, the filling in the middle and the chocolate on top and it is divine. It’s quite rich so you don’t need to eat a lot but it’s so so good. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

Pleschette October 26, 2013 at 9:53 am

I can eat an entire sleeve of thin mints, so I stopped buying them. Thanks for sharing this HEALTHY option!

Kathy October 26, 2013 at 9:21 pm

What yummy looking recipes you have….my question is this….I am quite new to this “raw way of things”….I went vegetarian a few years ago and am tying to go vegan by the end of the year, I know other posters mention substitutions and whatnot, and clearly this is a RAW site (I get that), however, my question was this, before I go and spend the $22 on just the ‘raw cocoa butter’ that you have listed above, are the soy alternatives in grocery stores not good for these kinds of recipes? I don’t have an outlet to most of these ingredients except for purchase online, and we know how pricey that can be, but if I were to substitute the butter, would it just not work or be gross? Thanks for your help/advice. :)

Susan October 28, 2013 at 11:12 am

I would not use soy alternatives. They would affect the flavor, the consistency, etc. Also, anything that is a modified soy is not desirable.

Kathleen January 17, 2014 at 8:18 pm

Susan,
What could I substitute for the cacao butter, can’t find it in my town, wanted to make very soon.
Thanks
