{coconut butter} love

Wednesday, January 22, 2014




Have you taken stock of the available "butters" lately?

There's peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter, pea butter {wtf?} and apparently there is even cookie butter! But have you ever had, or even heard of, coconut butter? Me either! Until last week that is.

Naturally, when I heard such a thing existed, I promptly made a batch. And it is so good! Lightly sweet and salty and so coconutty...yum.

Here's what you need:

8 cups coconut flakes {shredded would also work fine}

2 tbsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp vanilla powder *

1/2 tsp sea salt

*you can leave this out if you like...I'm also keen to experiment with cinnamon or cacao and honey

Throw the whole lot in your food processor and crank it up but keep an eye on it as you may have to scrape the sides down with a spatula every now and again.

After a minute or two, your mixture will have a sort of crumbly texture and then, after another minute or two, it completely liquefies. Once you've got a liquid like consistency, pour it all into an oh-so trendy mason jar, slap a lid on it and you're done!

Oh, and after an hour or two your coconut butter will go back to a solid state.

We've been spreading our coconut butter on toast, adding it to curries and just plain old eating it by the spoonful.

Enjoy!

  1. Hey! Don't knock pea butter! We use it to make nut free goodies for school lunches. Try these, but use pea butter, no brown sugar, only 1/2 cup honey and sprouted quinoa!
