I'm sorry buddy...

Dieter is starting to notice that he gets different food. Almost always it is when we are at someone else's house. He'll ask for something and Kimball and I will have to say, "I'm sorry buddy. It's makes your skin itch." or, "It gives you diarrhea."

While I am glad that he is not eating certain things (sugar, refined flours, candy, all of that processed garbage with additives...) it still makes me sad to have to have to tell him no. I realize I don't do things mainstream but everyone wants to feel "normal" (whatever that may be).

Anyway, Dieter was thrilled when I asked him if he wanted some "candy". He is going to be the healthiest little boy ever! I don't know what you would call these...Dieter thinks they are "cinnamon candy".

{Recipe from Internal Bliss}

1/2 cup Ghee (You could use butter)
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
2-3 TBsp Honey
1/2 TBsp Cinnamon
Dash of Vanilla Extract (optional)

-Bring the ghee and oil to room temperature.
-Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
-Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
-Scoop up about 1-2 tsp worth of cinnamon mixture and drop it onto the baking sheet, forming the shape of a "kiss". If the mixture is to runny, refrigerate it until it thickens up to a workable consistency.
-Refrigerate 20 minutes or until the kisses have hardened.
-Store in refrigerator.

*You can also pour the mixture into a candy mold. It can also be chilled in the refrigerator and rolled my hand to make truffles (this is a little difficult because the mixture will start to melt in your hands). Truffles can be rolled in ground nuts or shredded coconut mixed with cinnamon. Store in refrigerator.

Hi! I have a niece with digestive issues that keep her on a special diet, so I find your blog very relatable. I am a new follower and hope you'll stop by mine and follow along, too!

Love your blog! This recipe in particular is one I want to make since my boy is on a restricted diet too.

Thanks for stopping by
