Gluten Free & Vegan Peppermint Patties


I love these fresh tasting patties. They go pretty quick so make a lot! You can change up the mint and use other flavorings too.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup coconut oil 
  • ¼ cup agave nectar
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint oil (I used organic)
  • ½ to 1 cup dark chocolate 73% , melted 

Directions:

  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  lined 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. Dip patties into melted chocolate (use spoon to drop patty into melted chocolate, dip and remove) place on parchment paper or rack with paper underneath to catch drips.
  8. Place patties on parchment paper  to harden (takes 10 minutes though on a summer day you may need to refreeze).
