Lavender Meltaways

lavender meltaways

I’ve had this recipe brewing in my head for a while now and finally got around to testing it out the other day. I seriously bought the fresh lemon to make these over two weeks ago! Lucky for me, lemons stay good for a while in the fridge. Anyway, these are delectable little fat bombs with a refreshing lemony and lavender flavor. They’re the perfect little after dinner treat and quite satisfying too. The lavender in them is just right and tastes so lovely. If you aren’t a fan of lavender, you can omit the oil (and flowers) and add 2 drops of peppermint or orange essential oil instead. These are also tasty plain, but I think it’s fun to add a little extra something.

Please make sure to only use pure therapeutic essential oils for cooking. Many essential oils that are sold in stores are not 100% pure and can be chemically adulterated. These are not meant for consumption! My essential oil of choice is Young Living. Learn where to get high quality essential oils HERE.

Ingredients:

  • 7 oz box coconut cream concentrate, melted (find here)
  • 5 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 drop lavender essential oil (find out where to buy therapeutic grade oils HERE)
  • Dried lavender flowers for garnishing, optional

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix the first six ingredients together until smooth (the texture will be a little gritty from the coconut cream concentrate — just make sure it’s all blended well!).
  2. Then, add the drop of lavender essential oil and stir again.
  3. Line a mini muffin pan with mini paper liners. Alternatively, you can place the liners on a baking sheet, but they might be a little misshapen. Spoon mixture into the liners.
  4. Place in the fridge to chill about 10-15 minutes (mixture should still be a little tacky). Remove and garnish with lavender flowers, if using. Then place back in the fridge to set completely.
  5. Store in the refrigerator. You can eat them cold, right out of the fridge or let them soften slightly at room temperature before eating.

Yields: 17 meltaways
