Peppermint Pattie Coconut Bark (and Almond Joy version)

This is a frozen coconut “candy” – but a candy that I eat before every meal! (At the time of this update 10/29/2009.) In the book “Eat Fat, Lose Fat,” by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig, the authors note that unrefined, virgin coconut oil provides “vital nourishment to every cell in your body…” but it also helps one feel satisfied, decreasing cravings and persistent hunger.
