Raw Thin Mint Brownies

Raw Thin Mint Brownies: "Raw Thin-Mint Brownies

1 c walnuts (120g)
1 and 1/3 cups pitted dates (230 grams) (If you want a sweeter result, up the proportion of dates.) (If unsure what dates to use, see fudge baby FAQ post)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3-6 tablespoons cocoa powder, depending on how chocolatey you want the balls to be (I used 5T)
Pure peppermint extract, as desired (Start with less; you can always add more.)
Optional: for even more chocolate flavor, add chocolate chips. Or add cacao nibs.
Optional: tiny dash of salt
1. Chop/blend all the ingredients, using a food processor, Magic Bullet, etc. (No need to blend the dates first; I just blend everything all at once.)
2. Form into brownies… that is, if you don’t eat it all first!"
