I recently discovered Nikki’s Coconut Butter–and I am obsessed! I love it so much I actually contemplated changing my blog name to “Coconut Butter Plus Chocolate” I mean, that’s how amazing this stuff is! Much like peanut butter you can spread it on anything. You can cook with it, bake with it and substitute it for any butter ingredient–just like peanut butter.

This recipe can be modified if you don’t have flavored Coconut Butter. There are many brands out there, I adore Sweet Spreads just as much. So if you don’t have the specific coconut butter, I will do my best to give you a substitute. (substitutions at bottom of page)


Recipe

  • 1/4 Cup Mint Chocolate Chip Coconut Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Almond Butter
  • 2 tbsp. Honey/Agave/Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbsp. Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter
  • 1 tbsp. Mini Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips or Chips of Choice
  • 1 tbsp. Sprinkles (optional)

Directions

Melt Mint Chocolate Chip Coconut Butter with almond butter and 1 tbsp. honey and then stir until well combined. Pour into 4 silicone cupcake molds and sprinkle evenly with chocolate chips. Melt together vanilla cupcake batter and 1 tbsp. honey and stir until combined. Pour vanilla mix into the center of the mint chocolate mix. Top with sprinkles and freeze for at least an hour before serving.

Substitutions

Mint Chocolate Chip Coconut Butter: 2 tbsp. coconut butter, 1 tbsp. honey, 1 tbsp. cocoa powder, 1 tbsp. coconut oil. (Mix melted coconut oil, honey and cocoa powder together and then add to coconut butter)

Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter: 1 tbsp. coconut butter, 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract or vanilla bean, 1 tbsp. honey

I absolutely love when things are simple and straight forward–especially recipes! I want all the ingredients to be in my kitchen ready to go. Let’s be honest, how often does that actually happen? Almost never, huh? Well, that’s about to change after you take a look at my next recipe: Almond Butter Breakfast Bars–using basic health food ingredients. If you are a health nut like me, you will have every single one of these ingredients in your cupboard and if you don’t, I will give you a great substitute!

I know eating healthy can get expensive so I wanted to share with you where I get all of my ingredients from: Vitacost.com. It’s an online super store and they sell everything health related: food, vitamins, supplements, protein bars and powders, diet products and even beauty and personal care. It’s the cheapest I have found and you can get everything in one big haul that’s delivered the next day!

Mix dough ingredients together with a fork. (If dough is too sticky, add another tsp of oat flour) Roll out dough on parchment paper until it’s a 1/8 inch thick. Cut out 2 rectangle shapes. Repeat with excess dough. Mine made 4 rectangles about 1 inch wide and 1.5 inch long. Place rectangles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and set aside. In a small pan on medium-low heat, sauté filling ingredients. Use a small whisk to stir and break up raspberries. Once most of the water has disappeared, you should have a thick saucy like texture. Spoon raspberry sauce onto two of the rectangles leaving a little room around the edge. Cover the raspberry sauce with the remaining rectangles and use a fork to press the edges together. Bake for 6-7 minutes at 350f. Once cooled top with coconut butter and enjoy!
