I saw this recipe on The Coconut Mama’s facebook page and I made them immediately. These coconut butter buttons are so easy to make and are a great source of healthy fats. You just want to make sure you don’t eat too many at once! My family is already addicted.
- 3/4 Cup Coconut Butter
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil (I always use unrefined)
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup or Raw Honey (I used honey. The original recipe says 3 tablespoons but we love the taste of coconut by itself so I didn’t think it needed very much honey.)
Mix all the ingredients together in a food processor or mixer.
Scoop mixture into a ziplock bag.
Coconut butter and coconut oil will begin to melt at 76°. If your coconut butter mixture is melted you’ll need to refrigerate it for 5-10 minutes so it firms up.
Cut the tip off one of the corners of the bag and squeeze button size drops of coconut butter onto a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet.
Once you’ve used up all the coconut butter you’ll want to put the buttons into the refrigerator to set up.
After they’ve hardened you’ll want to remove them from the cookie sheet and store them in a container in the refrigerator or freezer.
This recipe makes approximately 1 cup of coconut butter buttons.
