These no-bake vegan peppermint mocha brownies are so rich and fudgy it’s hard tell they’re made with just a few wholesome ingredients. Dates, raw cacao powder and walnuts are amped up with peppermint extract and strongly brewed coffee for a classic peppermint mocha flavour combination that is hard to resist.

No-Bake Vegan Peppermint Mocha Brownies

These peppermint mocha brownies were inspired by my Double Chocolate Raw Vegan Brownie recipe. They both have a base of dates, walnuts and cocoa but these ones have added coffee and peppermint extract for a delicious mocha twist!

There’s not much to making them, just toss everything in the food processor until you have a thick, fudgy dough then press it into a pan and pop in the freezer to set.

Then the tricky part, waiting. Ugh. So hard.

But good things come to those who wait so just wait it out and you’ll be enjoying no-bake vegan peppermint mocha brownies in no time!

So, are you a coffee-lover? Yay or nay? How do you brew coffee at home? I use a french press but have been wanting to get a pour-over coffee maker. I love tea too but I’d really prefer not to go a day without a good cup of coffee!
