Coconut butter is one of our favorite ingredients to add into both sweet and savory recipes for a “creamy” texture that’s dairy free and has a little added sweetness! Here are five of our favorite recipes from around the internet that feature simple and easy ways to incorporate coconut butter into any meal.
Raw Vegan Peppermint Bark
Need we say more? This recipe is super easy, super quick, and absolutely delicious. Perfect for a snack or beautiful holiday dessert, everyone will enjoy how decadent and dairy free this is. Just swap in some coconut butter for the coconut oil used in the white chocolate layer, and you'll be good to go! Plus, trying to cut back on chocolate? This could be a great replacement.
Roasted Winter Squash + Coconut Butter
There are few things that taste better than a hearty plate of warmed roasted winter squash drizzled in coconut butter and cinnamon! We love adding a spoonful to acorn or delicata squash in particular, but this recipe can be made with any squash variety. For that sweet and salty balance, add a pinch of sea salt and you’re good to go!
Vegan Coconut Butter Cups
An oh-so-classic twist on chocolate peanut butter cups! These 4-ingredient cups are our absolute favorite, and they’re so easy to make. Not too sweet, not too bitter, they have a delicious flavor profile that’s perfect for a satisfying dessert or quick snack!
Coconut Cream Truffles
If you like coconut, then you will love these coconut cream truffles that Jessica from Delicious Obsessions made! Loaded with almost all coconut (coconut butter, coconut oil, shredded coconut, and coconut milk) and a dash of vanilla extract for sweetness, these bites will leave you in a tropical and coconutty heaven! For a delicious variation, add in some cacao or use our Coconut Cacao Bliss!
Vegan, AIP-compliant Mayonnaise
In our opinion, mayo is one of the must-have ingredients for the perfect sandwich! One of our favorite ways to include it on a sandwich is this vegan mayonnaise recipe that keeps the flavor of mayonnaise, but is completely egg and dairy-free! Spread it on a gluten-free vegan toast, layer it on a loaded veggie sandwich, or thin it out some more for a delicious and creamy dressing on salads!
