Peppermint Patties

Picture 14

  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup agave nectar or honey
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint oil (I used organic)
  • ½ to 1 cup chocolate chunks (I use ENJOY LIFE chocolate, it’s GF and dairy free)
  • I added a cup of organic coconut flakes,unsweetened, GF, and ground them in a coffee grinder (much cheaper than a Vitamix and works the same!) I just don’t use the same coffee grinder that I use to grind coffee LOL.
  1. In a small bowl, combine coconut oil, agave and peppermint oil, mixing with a spoon
  2. Smash clumps of coconut oil against side of bowl until mixture is smooth
  3. Freeze mixture for a few minutes until it starts to harden, then remove from freezer
  4. Use a 1.5 teaspoon ice cream scoop to measure out little balls onto a parchment paperlined plate
  5. Place plate in freezer to firm up mint balls; when firm, remove from freezer
  6. Squish balls down into flat little patties on parchment paper
  7. Melt chocolate over very low heat; allow to cool slightly
  8. Dip patties into melted chocolate (use spoon to drop patty into melted chocolate, dip and remove)
  9. Place patties on parchment paper to harden (takes 10 minutes though on a summer day you may need to refreeze)

Makes about 12 patties
