Crunchy Mint Crème Cups

mins30 6


  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1 cup dates (soaked in hot water for 10 mins)
  • 2 scoops Nuzest Kids Good Stuff Mint-Choc
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup desicated coconut
  • 2 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp Tanna Farms Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 300g jar of coconut butter
  • 2 Tbsp coconut cream
  • 1 handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 10 drops of peppermint oil (add gradually to suit your taste buds)
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1/3 cup cacao butter (can substitute for coconut oil)
  • 3 Tbsp honey (can substitute for maple syrup)


To make the Base:

Combine all ingredients to a food processor and process until it comes together. Using mini cupcake cups, place them in a cupcake tray and with a teaspoon measure scoop out the mixture. Place mixture into the bottom of each casing and press down firmly with a knife. Ensure mixture is spread evenly and then place in the fridge.


To make the Mint Creme Layer:

Place coconut butter, cream, and mint leaves into a food processor and process until creamy (it shouldn’t be too loose). As you are processing gradually add in the peppermint oil. How much peppermint you use all depends on how much you lover the minty flavour. Once combined use the Tbsp measure to add the mixture to each cup. Evenly spread on top of the base and press down firmly, then place back into the fridge.


To make the Chocolate Top:

In a small sauce pan over a low heat melt the cacao butter/coconut oil, once melted stir in Cacao powder and honey mixing until combined. Take mixture off the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Then using a teaspoon measure pour the mixture onto each cup one at a time, topping up to use all the mixture, and ensure the surface is fully coated. Then place back into the fridge until hardened.
