It’s safe to say that I have found my new favorite nut butter — this ridiculously good toasted coconut butter recipe! It’s a staple.

Not only is it ridiculously good, but it’s ridiculously easy to make. I hesitated even calling this a recipe because it only calls for one ingredient and three easy steps, but here we are.

All you need to make the best coconut butter ever in the comfort of home is some unsweetened coconut flakes, a nonstick skillet, and a food processor. That’s it! You’re minutes away from enjoying the best coconut butter ever.

I love to use this to make my favorite Homemade Chocolate Easter Eggs (perfect for Easter!), but it’s also good on toast, in grain-free porridge, with apple slices, on Paleo pancakes, in a smoothie, or however you typically use almond butter or any nut/seed butter!

How To Make Toasted Coconut Butter

  1. Toast the Coconut — Add unsweetened shredded coconut to a nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon for 3-5 minutes until golden and fragrant. Turn off heat, and continue to stir for 30 seconds. This will help release the natural oils from the coconut to make the butter creamy.
  2. Blend It Up — Add toasted coconut to a food processor and pulse continuously, taking breaks to scrape down the sides with a spatula a few times for a total time of 4-5 minutes or so until the butter has formed and it’s smooth.
  3. Serve and Store It — Enjoy this Paleo nut butter however you would normally eat almond butter! And transfer the smooth toasted coconut butter to an airtight container and store it in the pantry.

Variations

  • Add a pinch of flakey sea salt if you’re craving more savory notes.
  • Toast the coconut flakes with some pure vanilla extract to turn this into vanilla coconut butter.
  • Spice it up by adding cinnamon or cardamom!

Storage Instructions

Store smooth toasted coconut butter to an airtight container and store in the pantry as you would almond butter. It should keep for several weeks to a couple months.
