Homemade Coconut Peanut Butter

Coconut Peanut Butter

Ok, so I’m not gonna lie. You need some pretty heavy equipment to make this happen. But if you have these appliances already than you gotsta be making your own nut butter! It’s stupid easy, delicious and by making it yourself you know exactly what is in it.

So here is the equipment you need (don’t go running out to buy it if you don’t already have it, this is pricy stuff):

Health bennies:

  • Coconut manna (pureed coconut) – High in lauric acid, fiber & protein.
  • Peanuts – High in monounsaturated (good) fat. Great source of protein, vitamin E and antioxidants.

Here’s the recipe. You can make it with any kind of nut you please, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, etc.  I love this stuff, I have it on toast a few times a week or just eat a strait up spoonful if I’m in the mood…
