Chocolate Honey Coconut Butter-2 Ways

Chocolate Honey Coconut Butter-2 Ways

Coconut butter is just one of those simple recipes that comes together in minutes and delivers pure satisfaction! Some of my favorite whole foods are the ones which provide maximum flavor and great health benefits at the same time. Chocolate honey coconut butter fits the bill perfectly and can made inexpensively with a few high quality ingredients.

 

I started making my own coconut butter several years ago when I realized I was spending $30.00-40.00 dollars per month on a commercial brand of chocolate coconut butter. Since I always have organic coconut flakes, dark chocolate bars, raw cacao powder, raw honey, and raw virgin coconut oil on hand in my pantry, I decided to make my own coconut butter and save money in the process.

 

Coconut butter has a rich coconut flavor and buttery texture that melts in your mouth and makes you want to keep eating it! Once you make my recipe and pair the coconut butter with dark chocolate and the sweet honey, you have a yummy whole foods recipe that will quickly become one of your favorites! I like alternating between using raw cacao powder and dark chocolate bars. I will provide both recipes so you can decide which one you like the best.

 

Coconut

Coconut in all of it forms is one of my favorite nutrient-rich foods. The unsweetened organic coconut flakes that are used in this recipe are made from coconut meat that is dried and shredded into flakes. Coconut meat is rich in potassium, manganese, copper, selenium, and fiber. Coconut also contains lauric acid which is an important medium chain fatty acid that the liver uses for energy production instead of storing as fat. Coconut meat, coconut oil, and coconut milk has antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. Coconut also has potent anti-inflammatory properties along with helping protect the body against free radical damage.

 

Make this easy coconut butter recipe the next time you want a healthy snack that is truly delicious! If you want to really try something delicious drizzle this yummy chocolate honey coconut butter on top of these fabulous grain-free chocolate cupcakes from Honest Body.

  1. Hi Shelley,
    awesome recipes.
    I have been experimenting with that lately and it is great to have some ‘proven’ recipe provided by an expert.

    The other day I wanted to make coconut chocolate brownies but I had no cocoa.
    Instead I melted some Ghana (72%) dark chocolate and equal amount of coconut oil and stirred it together and poured it into ice – cube trays and added a few pieces of walnuts in each.
    The were so yummy after about 15 min in the freezer!

    To enjoyable healthy eating!

  3. Wow, those recipes are mouthwatering and I’ve only just eaten lunch! Yum!

  4. I’ve never had this before… but I keep thinking … chocolate, coconut, honey…. so this would make good for putting on some toast? It does sound and look delicious

  5. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Enjoy the site and the great ideas you share!
    Just made these but mine doesn’t look as buttery and creamy as yours. It tastes fabulous, but was just wondering if I should keep adding more coconut oil to it to get it to your consistency or if it’ll melt after sitting at room temp. for a bit. I made it in the Vitamix. It started steaming so I turned it off. Any thoughts you have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

    • Thanks Jeanna! I would add an additional tablespoon of melted coconut oil to batch you already made and stir it up. Next time you make the recipe start with only 2 cups of the coconut flakes and add 1 extra tablespoon of coconut oil to the recipe to make it easier for your Vitamix to blend it up. Make sure you use the tamper to push it down to the blades and you can stop it and let it cool down a bit if it start steaming and then continue to blend it until creamy. Add the additional coconut a cup at a time and then once it’s creamy add the chocolate chunks or cacao powder and the remaining ingredients.

    how long will it be good when you don’t put it in the fridge if you make a large batch?

  7. Gary Johns says:

    Can’t wait to try this. It sounds amazing!

  8. This sounds delicious, I will have to give it a go. I always make coconut butter myself and have never bought it from a shop. Sometimes I pour it into ice cube trays and when I am hungry pop out a couple and it really fills me up and reminds me a little like white chocolate. I am going to try the recipe using the cacao powder. I wonder how long it will take me to eat it all 🙂
