Last week I featured a video series about coconuts and all the amazing products you can get from 1 organic coconut.  In one of the videos, How To Make Your Own Organic Coconut Butter, I showed you how easy it was to make your own coconut butter.  You can do this with freshly dehydrated coconut flakes or store bought organic coconut flakes.  Once I tasted homemade coconut butter, there was no going back to buying the stuff out of the jar, homemade is so amazing!

I usually put my coconut butter into a glass jar and store it at room temperature.  It is cold here in Wisconsin, so it quickly hardens.  When I wanted a little coconut butter, I would just chip some out of the jar.  I began to think, there has to be an easier way to grab a piece of coconut butter and that is how these cookies came about.  I did not sweeten these cookies, you surely can.  I like the taste of coconut butter as is but if you want to experiment, this recipe is perfect for that.  Try adding some cocoa powder, some melted dark chocolate, some raw honey or even your favorite extracts (peppermint, almond etc.)

Organic Coconut Butter Cookies/Bark Recipe

Nutrition Info: Calories: 101.3 Fat: 9.5g Carbohydrates: 4.4g Protein: 0.9g

Ingredients

  • 12 oz bag of shredded dehydrated unsweetened organic coconut (click here to see our video on How To Make Organic Coconut Butter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • honey, cocoa, almond extract or other extracts could be used (optional)

Instructions

  1. Put dehydrated coconut into a food processor for 10 minutes or until it becomes runny.
  2. Once it becomes runny add vanilla. You could also add some raw honey at this point if you are looking for a sweeter cookie.
  3. Grease molds of choice with coconut oil. If you do not have any molds, you can make bark by lining a cookie sheet with greased parchment paper.
  4. Pour into molds or onto cookie sheet and freeze or refrigerate until it hardens (5-20 minutes).
  5. Pop out of molds or break into bark pieces.

    How pretty! I didn’t know the shredded coconut would become runny. I guess I’ve never gotten past the flour stage.

  2. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Also Stuart did you know if you whip coconut oil for 7-10 minutes it will become a lot like whipped cream? Not coconut milk, but coconut oil!

  3. Stuart Pierce says:

    No, thanks for the tip!

  4. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    I might try some frosting with it on my coconut cut out cookies…

    I made something similar…sweetened with a bit of Steviva, added some walnuts for crunch and drizzled with a bit of dark chocolate melted with coconut oil…What a treat!!  I made them in a mini muffin pan which is the perfect little bite-size for me.

    What kind of molds did you you use? The bark is so pretty.

      Thank you, we like them.  We also use them for homemade ice pops too.  I think I got them at Jo Ann Fabrics awhile back.  They were over in the homemade candy isle.  I have had them for several years, but last year I bought some others there, so I know they do carry them still.
