Annette brought this recipe using carob powder, honey, and oil of peppermint to the bakery, and it was a great success. We are familiar with chocolate-covered peppermint patties, and this no-bake cookie captures some of this flavor.
1 cp. natural salted peanut butter 2/3 cp. finely chopped walnuts
1/4 cp. roasted tahini 1/4 cp. carob powder
1/2 cp. honey 1/4 cp. shredded coconut
1 tsp. vanilla extract 1/2 cp. raisins
1 tsp. peppermint extract
- Mix the peanut butter, tahini, honey, vanilla, and peppermint extract in a medium-size bowl.
- Finely chop the walnuts in a food processor so they are the consistency of crumbs or cornmeal. Add the chopped walnuts, carob powder, coconut, and raisins to the liquid ingredients and mix well.
- Cover the dough and place in the refrigerator 1-2 hours to stiffen. Remove dough from refrigerator and break off pieces to make balls 1” in diameter. Roll the balls in chopped walnuts, shredded coconut, or sesame seeds. Makes 40.
