Homemade Coconut Butter

I am obsessed with all things coconut. I am not kidding….it is to the point that I need to be physically restrained from sucking suntan lotion out of the bottle……

Homemade Coconut Butter is one of my favorites. You can use it on so many things. I add it to oatmeal, on protein pancakes, in a curry, on fruit or even in my coffee!

So simple and easy to make.

Add unsweetened coconut flakes to a food processor and just let ‘er rip. You will have to stop it and scrape the sides once in a while. It will take about 10 minutes depending on your processor.

Waiting is the hardest part

Once it is a nice smooth consistence pour it in a mason jar and store at room temperature. It will naturally firm up but gently warming it up will malt it down quickly.

Deliciousness in a jar

You will go through this stuff like crazy! It is completely addictive.

Here is a great way to try it……

“Oatmeal” Minus the Oats

Ingredients
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 banana, mashed
3/4 cup liquid egg whites (or 3 egg whites)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (add more if desired)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:
1.Whisk together egg whites and almond milk and then stir in walnuts, ground flax, banana, vanilla extract, and cinnamon; blend well.
2.In a medium saucepan, warm the mixture on the stove, stirring frequently, until the “oatmeal” reaches the desired consistency; this should only take a few minutes.
3.Top with berries, nut butter, seeds, or whatever else you want.
