Peppermint Patties Go Raw: Gluten Free Raw Food Recipe for Superfood Candy Made with Hemp Seeds and Green Powder

by | 0 comments

My latest Yummy treat – I just made this as a variation of my Peppermint Patty Recipe from Healthy Halloween Treats , a complete guide to raw and living foods, gluten-free recipes for Halloween.

This 100% raw foods recipe is also gluten free and sugar free.  Much better for you than the peppermint patties you may have eaten before.  It's high in omega 3 fats from the hemp seed, selenium from the brazil nuts, copper from the macadamia nuts, chlorophyll from the greens and antiviral lauric acid from the coocnut.  They are very low glycemic, as they contain no  sweeteners.  If you prefer the filling a little bit sweeter, you can add  1/4 cup pitted dates.

Super Food Peppermint Patties

by Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo



  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup brazil nuts
  • 1/2 cup raw macadamia nuts
  • 1 1/2 cup dried coconut shreds
  • 1/8 teaspoon green stevia
  • 1 Tablespoon each chlorella and blue green algae powder (or your favorite green powder)
  • 3 drops peppermint essential oil

Chocolate Coating

  • 1/4 cup  cacao paste, softened in the dehydrator for 15 minutes at 115 degrees  or in a double boiler
  • 1/8 cup cacao butter, melted as for the cacao paste.
  • 1/8 teaspoon stevia
  • 2 drops mint essential oil


  1. Process the filling in food processor until almost smooth.
  2. Press the filling into silicone molds, disposable mini cupcake papers, or any other shapes desired.  If you prefer, you can spread it on a piece of wax paper and score into desired sizes.
  3. Freeze the filling for at least half an hour.
  4. Stir all sauce ingredients together in a small bowl or blend in blender.
  5. Pop the filling from the molds or cut into desired sizes.
  6. Dip the filling pieces into the chocolate sauce (you may need to re-soften it unless you made it right before dipping.)
  7. Place carefully on a piece of wax paper to harden.  Store in refrigerator or freezer.

Chocolate topping variation

  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/8 cup melted cacao butter
  • 2 drops mint essential oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder

Other Variations

You can add a couple of drops of mint essential oil to your favorite  chocolate sauce or any of the chocolate sauce recipes in  my books Healthy Halloween Treats and Healthy Holiday Traditions:  Nourishing Recipes for Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year's Celebrations. Both of these books are filled with gluten free raw and living foods recipes for holiday treats using health promoting ingredients.

Enjoy this recipe.

Love, Health and Joy,
