Raw Peppermint Patties

By Heather Braaten

Made from whole food ingredients, including nutrient rich raw cacao and healthy fats from coconut and cashew, these treats will not only satisfy your sweet tooth, they'll also nourish you.
Raw Peppermint Patties

Makes about 18 patties
For the filling
  • 1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons raw coconut butter
  • 2 tablespoons raw cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint oil
  • pinch of salt
For the coating
  • 3 full tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoon raw honey
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder
  • pinch of salt
1. Combine all filling ingredients into a bowl and mash together with a fork, carefully smoothing out lumps of coconut butter and cashew butter, until all ingredients are well combined & dough-like.
2. Roll into a long, skinny log approximately 1" diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap and set in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes, or until very cold & solid.
3. In a double broiler, or over very low heat, melt coconut oil & honey together, add cocao & salt, and stir until smooth & completely combined. Let cool slightly.
4. Remove filling from the freezer. Slice the log into thin disks. Work in batches, keeping most of the disks frozen, while you coat a few at a time.
5. Dip each pattie in the chocolate sauce. Work quickly, so the disks stay cold. Put coated patties back in the freezer and coat your next batch. Serve frozen.
