First it was pumpkin spice overload around here, now it’s time to bring on the chocolate peppermint! I love, love, love the combination of chocolate and peppermint. Chocolate pairs wonderfully with so many things…orange, coffee, raspberry, caramel, peppermint. How to choose a favorite?
Today I’m sharing a new cookie dough bites recipe on The Balanced Platter, chocolate peppermint style! Cashews, oats, cocoa, pure maple syrup, and peppermint extract. There isn’t much to this recipe, but they sure are tasty. No refined sugar, gluten or dairy. They are just a simple holiday treat you can enjoy and not feel (too) guilty.
