How To Make Coconut Butter (Vegan, Gluten Free)
Makes: approx. 1/2 cup
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (I use Bob's Red Mill)
In a food processor, blend shredded coconut for 10-15 minutes whilst scraping down sides with a spatula every few minutes until you have a satisfactory creamy consistency.
Store at room temperature in a jar with a tightly fitting lid (keeps for a month or so). It is normal for the oil to separate, just stir before use.
