{NEW} Clean Eating Peppermint Patties 🍬🍬🍬

It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year! 🎄🎁

Decadent All Natural Holiday Treats!

There were lots of questions about these on Instagram, so I’ll try to answer them here:

These homemade peppermint patties are mostly a coconut base, with a bit of a coconut flavor. There is no substitution for coconut here, so if you don’t eat coconut then skip these.

I like to use the highest cacao chocolate I can find on sale. Read the ingredients!Peppermint extracts vary, so you may need to adjust the peppermint flavor by adding a tiny bit more to your liking.

Melt your chocolate in a double broiler or in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds.

Sweetness factor is a very personal preference, so you may find that you want more/less honey.

I actually used my fingers to create little discs, but I bet you could find silicone trays that would work great too.

I often sprinkle mine with a tiny dusting of crushed organic candy cane (CORN SYRUP FREE, yes those are available at the health food stores or Amazon)

Have FUN making these!

Makes 8-12 patties depending on size
Ingredients:

  • 1 1⁄2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut (“Let’s do Organic” brand tastes best for these)
  • 2 Tbsps unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsps unrefined coconut oil
  • 1⁄4 cup raw honey (buy local!), or pure maple syrup
  • 1⁄2 tsp peppermint extract, or to taste
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate, melted

In a blender or food processor, pulse the shredded coconut, coconut milk, coconut oil, honey, and peppermint extract. Process just until a smooth paste has formed.Shape this paste into round discs and coat/drizzle with a light coat of your melted chocolate.  Place your patties on wax paper, then set in the freezer for about 20 minutes.Store leftovers (tightly wrapped) in the fridge or
freezer!

P.S. I often sprinkle mine with a tiny dusting of organic
candy cane (CORN SYRUP FREE)

Enjoy!
