I first found this Coconut Oil Candy recipe on a site that discusses how coconut oil can help some Alzheimer’s patients to regain a little capacity.  The original recipe had only oil, chocolate, and honey.  Just as it was, the recipe was yummy and the sugar content quite low.  I have added several other items which contain really great nutrients for everyone.

Recipe type: Candy
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 25 pieces
 
This is a really low carb item, but, for those watching fat grams, this is a little high, although the Extra Virgin Coconut Oil does have a lot of benefits. Don't be afraid to try this.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (EVCO)
  • 1 cup Cocoa
  • 1 cup Oatmeal
  • 1 cup Freshly ground Flax Meal
  • ¼ cup ground walnuts
  • ½ cup Shredded Coconut
  • ½ cup Raw Honey
Instructions
  1. Set the measuring cup of EVCO in some hot water to melt it into a liquid.
  2. While the oil is melting, stir all other dry ingredients together.
  3. When melted, add the EVCO to the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the honey and stir everything well.
  5. Set the bowl of candy in a cool place or into a larger bowl of very cold water.
  6. When the contents start to firm up, spoon out onto a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet or tray and place that into a refrigerator or cool area.
I have several recommendations about the ingredients and storage for this candy:
  1. Always use Extra Virgin oil.  It has had less damage from the extraction process.
  2. Grind you own Flax meal.  The Omega 3 oils are highly polyunsaturated and will turn into lipid peroxides over time.  A low cost $30.00 coffee grinder does a good job.
  3. Keep the candy in a refrigerator or other cold area so it does not melt on warm days.  Of course, it’s always possible that the batch won’t last long enough to melt.
If you have young kids around when you make it, that’s how many eager helpers you will have.  Don’t forget to get them to do the Quality Control testing when the batch is done.  It’s a nasty job, but, someone has to do it.
