Healthy Peppermint Slice

healthy, weightloss, peppermint, dessert, sugarfree

Peppermint and chocolate is a fantastic combination and even more so when it’s refined sugar free, full of the good stuff and still tastes amazing! Howzat?

I put together this recipe last year but have made a slight change, as I didn’t like the way the coconutty part was a bit crumbly. Macadamia nuts to the rescue as their oil content helps the ‘stick it’ factor and mild taste takes on the flavour of whatever you put with it and ‘ta daah’ pepperminty slice perfection.

I use Peppermint essential oil from the health shop. (Note: they say not to ingest this stuff just for the warning liability factor, I eat it with no adverse affects. So with all things, make your own decisions.)

Base

1 cup shredded coconut

1 cup macadamia nuts

2 drops of peppermint oil

¼ cup coconut oil

1 TBS organic maple syrup

Whizz in food processor until all stuck together and press in lined tin.

Top (chocolate tweets recipe no PB)

¼ cup coconut oil

1 inch x 1 inch square of cacao butter

1 TBS raw cacao powder

2 TBS organic maple syrup

1 TBS tahini

pinch of Himalayan rock salt

2 drops of peppermint oil

Melt cacao butter and coconut oil on very low heat or in a double boiler if you have a gas stove. Take off heat and mix in the rest of the ingredients.

Pour over the top of the base and chill until set.

Cut into squares.

And enjoy your sweet treats knowing that you are doing the best for your body.

Jingle bells,
