I almost feel silly posting such a simple recipe but I needed an excuse so I could post my photos somewhere. :) I made this up the other day and I will be darned if I didn’t create yet another love!
I have tried several different coconut butters/manna and my favorite, hands down, is the Artisana brand. It is made from whole coconut flesh and is considered a whole food, not just oil. This delicious “cream” melts in your mouth with full coconut flavor and aroma, while giving you whole coconut nutrition: oil, dietary fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. It doesn’t contain any additives—only pure, unadulterated coconut. And is made using a low-temperature process (below 115° F.) that preserves the vital enzymes, vitamins, and proteins. This coconut butter is made from 100% certified organic coconut, with no preservatives or other additives, in a facility that does not process any peanut, gluten, or dairy products.
Raw Coconut Butter is soft at above 76° F. and solid at lower temperatures. You can soften it by putting the jar inside a bowl of warm water; then stir well for a creamy, smooth texture. This bar will need to be kept in the freezer and eaten right away when removed and trust me, you won’t find that a problem! Much to my amazement the combination of the coconut butter and cacao nibs, instantly reminded me of raw cookie dough. I hope you enjoy it!
Yields 8 treats (1 Tbsp measurement) or 1 bar
