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".
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.
