Coconut Butter

I’ve never been one to come up with recipes and this one was surly by accident! I had been trying other plain ole’ coconut butters without much luck. I really wasn’t a fan of the flavor. I might as well have just eaten regular coconut oil. I wanted something that was easy to eat, portable and something that could also double as a treat when the mood struck. Just a hint of sweetness would do. Alas my coconut butter was born! Alternative butters can cost up to $14.00 and I wasn’t willing to pay… So for $5.00 a lb of shredded/unsweetened coconut and ingredients I already had at home it was a no-brainer. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as my dear family, friends and I do. Its the greatest tasting and easiest way to get some good fats in… ENJOY!!


Ingredients:

3 cups Shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup Coconut oil
1 Tsp Honey
2 Tsp Maple suryp
1 Tsp Vanilla extract
Dash of Salt (I used himalayan pink)

Directions:

1) Place shredded coconut in food processor. You will be processing the coconut to a fine consistency. This will take time so be patient. As it breaks down it will start to creep up the sides of the bowl. Just stop it and give it a scrap to ensure it gets equal amounts of love

2) Add salt, vanilla, maple syrup, honey and coconut oil. Turn the processor back on until smooth.

Appox time 10-15 mins total

**The longer it runs the smoother the consistency. So if you like it a little more gritty than have at it. Its all up to you! Please check for consistency as you go along. If you feel like the butter is still a little on the dry side then add more oil, by adding the oil your rehydrating the shreds for a creamy butter. You should have 1 full mason jars worth.
