I am willing to bet you have tried at least one buttermint at a wedding. I am also willing to bet that you could not eat just one! I LOVE them, I don't stop until they are all gone. Of course in my on-going adventures of healthifying every recipe on the planet, I just had to come up with a recipe for healthy buttermints! I have been eating these like crazy during my pregnancy too. Hey, healthy fats in coconut butter and grass-fed are excellent for brain development! Healthy Buttermints! I think I'll go have another….

  • Grease your candy molds with coconut oil
  • Using a spoon, scoop the “batter” into molds
  • Place into the fridge until firm
  • Pop out of candy molds and enjoy!
  • I like to store them in a jar in the fridge or freezer for a nice cool and pepperminty treat
