  • 1 ½ cups dates, pitted
  • 3 scoops collagen peptides (33g)
  • cup creamy, salted, almond or cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (plus extra for dusting, if desired)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoon instant coffee granules (1 small packet)
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract (alcohol free, if possible)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (optional)
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips sugar, diary free (optional)


  • In a food processor, add dates, collagen, nut butter, cocoa, cinnamon, instant coffee, salt and peppermint extract and process for 30-60 seconds or until mixture starts to form a ball. If the mixture is too dry, add the coconut oil.
  • Add the chocolate chips to the food processor and pulse 5-10 times until they are evenly distributed throughout the mixture. 
  • Using a cookie dough scoop, grab 1 tablespoon at a time and press into balls. The heat from handling the mixture will soften them a bit, so they will need to be chilled for 5-10 minutes to set. Use a small sieve to dust them with cocoa powder if desired.
