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.
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.
You will go through this stuff like crazy! It is completely addictive.
Here is a great way to try it……
“Oatmeal” Minus the Oats
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
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.
