Grab a peppermint avocado pattie and get relaxed with Misha's book

Do I look like an author? If you've been following Mom's blog, you probably know me as Misha, one of Sheree's fur kids. Well, I just penned my first book. I call it Misha's Ultimate Relaxation Guide.

I guess you could say I have a certain flare for relaxing. I've put all my secrets to relaxation in one book. I should charge a few dog treats for my book but I'm giving it away for free because I know you humans could use some help relaxing.

To get my e-book, all you have to do is sign up to follow Mom's blog and leave a comment that you signed up or already are a follower and want my book. Do this by Monday (3/17) to get my book hot off the presses!

I admit I am an attention hog so next, share this blog post with all your friends. Finally, make sure I have your e-mail address where you want my book sent. Also, extra comments telling me how cute I am would be appreciated.

Peppermint Avocado Patties
Once you get my book, snuggle up with it and one of Mom's Peppermint Avocado Patties. The recipe makes 12 small patties with a total fermentation potential (FP) of 11. Mom is really monitoring her carbs for FP or how easily the carbs are absorbed or not absorbed. The recipe uses avocadoes, which have a higher FP of about 6 per 2.8 grams.

I offered to eat all the avocadoes for her but she said, "No way, husky boy." Can you believe she'd treat an author that way?

Here's what you need for the avocado patties:

1 small avocado, about 3.3 g.
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
liquid stevia, 1-2 droppers full, depending on your taste
2-3 tsp. mint extract, alcohol-free
1/2 tsp. lemon juice

Here's what you need for the chocolate coating:

1/4 cup cacao powder
liquid stevia, to taste
1-2 T. melted coconut oil
dash of sea salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 T. sunbutter, unsweetened
optional: 1/2-1 tsp. additional mint extract

Here's what you do:

Mix all the pattie ingredients in a food processor until smooth.  Use a teaspoon to measure the amount for each pattie. Drop onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Shape into patties. Place the patties in the freezer to firm them up before covering them with chocolate.

Next, mix up your chocolate coating. Melt the coconut oil in a small bowl in the microwave. Stir in the other ingredients until smooth.

Once your patties are firm, coat them with the chocolate. Use the immersion technique to coat the patties. Or spoon on the chocolate to one side. Allow to firm. Then flip and repeat on the other side.

No matter which technique you use, it's all good.

Don't forget. Get my book by Monday (3/17) and start relaxing like me!

I passed your compliment on to Misha. He's sending you a big husky slup through the internet. He says to send you his book because he wants to help you relax. Hope you enjoy it.

Hi Misha, you are adorable! I have a lab-rottie-husky mix. He is still a puppy, so anytime I try to relax he is all over me. I have to keep my spray bottle of vinegar and water handy to keep him line. I love mint patties, so I will have to give these a try!

Hi Anastasia,

Thank you, thank you for liking Mom's blog. I used to be just like your puppy but now look at me. I'm an author.

Would you like me to send you my book? Where should I send it? I'd love you and your puppy to see it.
