I have seen recipes out there for coconut butter for a while but I just haven’t gotten around to making it. Wow! I seriously just made crack on a spoon. So amazingly good. You MUST make this if you are the type of person who eats peanut butter out of the jar with a spoon…
Put the first two ingredients in a food processor or Vitamix and process pushing down sides every 2-3 minutes until it liquifies (about 10 min). Then add the vanilla and salt and process some more until smooth. Pour into a jar and store in the pantry where it will thicken up to the consistency of peanut butter – and use just like you would use peanut butter.
Process the same as the above recipe adding the flavorings after the butter has liquified. This is like a coconut nutella! Yum! It is not that sweet – if you like things sweeter you can add raw honey or even yacon syrup.
