Dark Chocolate Coconut Butter

This stuff is my newest addiction! A few weeks ago I ordered Nikki’s coconut butter on Amazon and have been hooked ever since. But $14 for a 12 oz jar is pretty expensive. So thankfully, I found a much cheaper way to make it myself, for around $3 a 12 ounce jar. And with a vitamix, it literally only takes about a minute to make! I have seen quite a few recipes for coconut butter, but they either have too much honey or require you to blend it in food processor for 15-20 minutes. I only added a tablespoon of honey, and thought it was just the right amount of sweetness, but you can add another tablespoon if you like it sweeter. Also, I used half black cocoa powder for a more intense chocolate flavor. It tastes like a cross between a macaroon and a brownie.. I love to eat it with a spoon right out of the jar!

Dark Chocolate Coconut Butter
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil, separated
  • 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, (I used half black and half regular)
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/16 teaspoon sea salt
  1. Add one tablespoon of the melted coconut oil and the shredded coconut to a Vitamix, or other high speed blender and blend until combined. (You may need to scrape sides with spatula)
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
  3. Add to the blender and blend until combined.

  2. I love the idea of this recipe but it did not turn into coconut butter. (are you supposed to grind up the shredded coconut first so it doesn’t turn into a none baked cookie?)
