    DIY Recipe, Peppermint Patties – Low Sugar Treats

    These are a modern low sugar take on an old corner shop treat. They are perfect for squashing those sweet cravings this Easter.

    - ½ cup of organic unfractionated Coconut oil. 
    - ¼ cup of desiccated coconut. 
    - ¼ cup Agave nectar (stevia or sugar substitute)
    - 8 Drops of pure peppermint essential oil. 
    - ½ - 1 cup of dark chocolate (check the sugar content in the chocolate, if you want to reduce your sugars go for 85% )

    In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients apart from the chocolate. Mix well. If there are any lumps in the coconut oil, smash them out with the back of a fork until smooth. Place mixture in the freezer and remove once it begins to harden. On a plate lined with baking paper, use a spoon to measure out small mixture balls. Gently flatten balls into patties. Place plate in the freezer and let them set until firm. Chop chocolate into small chunks and then place in a glass bowl and melt in the microwave in 30 sec bursts. Place the patties on a spoon and dip them into melted chocolate. Place patties on baking paper to harden (It takes about 10 min). Store in the fridge and pull out to spoil the family without the guilty conscience. Yum!!!. xox
