Prep Time: 25-30 minutes
Yield: @ 45 soft chews
Suggested Serving Size: 1 a day and increase to 2 or more a day as feels best in your body
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup honey (local, raw preferred)
- 1/2 cup turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
In a medium size bowl mix all ingredients* until well combined, it will naturally start to form into a ball, add more turmeric as needed.**
Place ball in the freezer for 5-20 minutes to stiffen (time in freezer depends on how liquid the honey you use is).
Remove from freezer, place the dough between two pieces of parchment paper. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/2 inch. Alternatively, place a piece of parchment paper in a square baking pan and use another piece to press the dough out into the pan. If the dough becomes too soft while rolling or pressing it, place in the freezer for 3-5 minutes to stiffen it back up. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 3/4" pieces.
These little chews will keep in the freezer indefinitely.
*Consider adding a tablespoon of cinnamon or fresh grated ginger or a 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne. It is recommended to add only one additional spice to each batch.
**My coconut oil and honey were both solid, so I used a fork to mash it together.
