Peppermint Coconut Oil Chocolate

Posted Jun 01 2011 7:26am

Hello!

I’m so glad you liked the Apple Crisp yesterday! I was beyond pleased that there wasn’t a super strong coconut smell or taste. I took your advice and made Averie’s Coconut Oil Chocolate last night:

Changes that I made:

  • I used maple syrup instead of agave (I didn’t have any)
  • I made one batch with vanilla extract and one with peppermint extract

Peppermint Extract

I wasn’t sure if I’d have problems with the maple syrup freezing, but it worked out great! Mixed ingredients ready to freeze:

The peppermint is strong but I liked it – it was a peppermint patty without the white filling. There was a faint coconut taste, but I think I noticed it because I knew it was in there! (same with the beans in the blondies )

Cut into chunks:

Here are the steps you need to take:

  1. Get some coconut oil.
  2. Follow Averie’s recipe and make the changes I made, or not!
  3. Eat the chocolate.
  4. Repeat.

This week is flying by and I love it!

Tonight I need to go running – I skipped yesterday because I didn’t want to. Sure it was super windy and I could have gone to the gym, but I didn’t. I’m not beating myself up over it, but I tend to be all or nothing, so when I miss one day it usually leads to two and so on. I’ll let you know how my run goes tomorrow – because I will go!

*If you skip a workout are you good about getting back into your routine?
