Dates are a perfect base for raw cookies and treats, as they have great texture and natural sweetness so no additional sugars are needed.  These raw cookies use the addition of 3 kinds of chocolate and peppermint extract to make a classic chocolate mint flavoured treat that's packed with wholesome ingredients, minimal added sugars and a superfood hit from raw cacao and cacao nibs.
