Combine the dates, almonds, and oats in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the “S” blade. Process for about 1-2 minutes until all of the ingredients come together like a dough and are similar in size with no large chunks remaining. Add the cocoa powder, coconut oil, and mint extract then process to incorporate.
Add the dark chocolate morsels to the processor and pulse until just incorporated; not so much that the morsels loose their chunkiness in the mixture.
