This is one of my favorite recipes of all time from the Meaningful Eats blog, because it’s easy, delicious, and you don’t miss gluten or dairy. They’re also refined sugar free! Doesn’t get better than this!
Paleo Peppermint Patties
In a food processor, pulse down 1 c. shredded unsweetened coconut until it’s very fine.
2 Tbsp coconut milk
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1/4 c. raw honey
1/4 tsp peppermint extract (or more, to taste)
Process until a smooth paste has formed.
Drop the paste in spoonfuls onto a pan lined with parchment or waxed paper and freeze for 10 minutes. You could take the time to shape them into 1 1/2 inch rounds, but I’m usually too impatient.
Melt 1 c. dark chocolate chips in the microwave on medium or in a double boiler. Coat the frozen patties in the chocolate and allow to cool and harden before serving.
Store leftovers (ha!) in the fridge.
