Throw-back to the time I lived in Germany and where I'd purchase coconut butter on the regular.
It seems ridiculous to me now, why I'd purchase something that's so easy to recreate at home- not to mention cost effective?!
For this recipe you'll need 'one' ingredient - desiccated coconut.
You simply blend the coconut until it resembles the consistency of melted chocolate. EASY!
Other recipes on the blog also featuring coconut butter include - Berries & Cream Porridge, Matcha Vanilla Cupcakes & ANZAC Biscuits.
Although I've only mentioned sweet treats, coconut butter works wonderfully in curries too.

3-4 cups unsweetened desiccated coconut
In a food processor, add the coconut and begin to blend.
Blend until the coconut is super smooth, like nut butter.
Stop & scrape down the sides with a spatula throughout the process.
Blending should take between 20- 30min.
Have a taste midway through to see how the mouth feel is.
It may look smooth, but be grainy!
Store in an airtight jar - keeping in mind at room temperature the butter will be solid.
To use simply melt in the oven.
Yields 1x 500ml Jar.
