I think its time we switch it up a notch, wouldn’t you agree? As you have been able to tell by two of my most recent recipes, Paleo Chocolate Cake and Paleo Coconut Bread, I am sort of addicted to coconut. Yes, I admit it…its true. I’m in love with the fruit. Not that it’s very common here in Idaho or anything, but I find my ways of finding all sorts of organic coconut goodies. Yesterday I was playing around in my kitchen and found some coconut flakes in my pantry. They are so good looking (not to mention good tasting) that they caught my eye immediately and I ended up wanting to make something out of them. Of course I opted for butter! I have never actually made fresh coconut butter before, so it was the perfect day to try. And oh-boy, I am glad I did. Check out this easy Paleo Coconut Butter recipe I put together for you! All you need is coconut flakes. Period. That simple. If you make this butter, let me know what recipes you use it for in the comments below! I’d love to know what you all do with your butters ;).

You can spread it on fruits, Paleo breads/muffins and/or use it for baking. Krista Saucedo February 24, 2013 Can I just say this was a UUUHHHmazing! Cost effective too! Love it! One thing I do with coconut butter: slice strawberries in half and hull them, mix a little stevia (or sweetner of your choice) in the coconut butter, put coconut butter in the strawberry, top with toasted almond flour/crushed almonds…..just like cheesecake! Mariel Lewis February 24, 2013 Hi Krista! That strawberry idea sounds wonderful…I’ll have to give it a try!! Thanks for sharing. Keci Reynolds July 15, 2013 How long is it good for? Mariel Lewis July 24, 2013 Hi Kaci! It should keep fresh for about to 2 weeks.
