These kisses are easy to make, gluten-dairy-refined sugar free, and the perfect something if you are on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.). When I was healing on stage 1 of this diet, I kept a stash (+ other sweet treats) in my freezer to nibble on when I craved sweet …. they are also great for the lunchbox.
The sweeteners in the recipe are lakanto and stevia; neither feed harmful yeast, bacteria, or viruses living in the body and both are sugar substitutes while healing yeast/bacterial/viral related health issues (i.e. GBS+, Candida). Both are fine for diabetics because they do not influence blood sugar and insulin release.
Makes: 15 perfect kisses ❤
Gluten, nut, refined sugar free.
1/2 cup ghee*
1/2 cup coconut oil, extra virgin and raw
1 Tbs lakanto or xylitol (optional)
1/2 Tbs cinnamon
1/2-1 tsp stevia powder
Dash of vanilla extract (alcohol/sugar free)
Pinch of sea salt
- Gently heat ghee and coconut oil over very low heat until just melted.
- Combine the oils and all other ingredients in a food processor or blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Allow mixture to sit a few minutes until thickens up to workable consistency (not too thick for smooth result).
- Pour into a candy mold (i.e. Monamour heart silicone mold) or drop 2 teaspoons on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to form a “kiss”.
- Refrigerate 20 minutes or until they harden.
- Store in refrigerator.
Tips & Tricks
- Mixture can be chilled in fridge and rolled by hand into balls for truffles (work fast or will melt in hands).
- Sprinkle kisses with ground almonds, shredded coconut, or cinnamon.
- Sensitive to ghee? Use more coconut oil instead.
- Perfect treat for anyone on B.E.D.
*Ghee is pure milk fat. Made properly, it contains little to no milk protein or lactose. This fat is generally tolerated by those with dairy issues. If ghee still bothers you, use all coconut oil.
