This past week I have gone absolutely nuts over coconut! I finally got around to trying some sample packets of Artisana's coconut butter and oil that I received in various sample packages this past year. It is delicious! I especially love the cacao butter with bananas.

 Or, using the regular butter or oil to make french toast.

After reading about Nikki's Coconut butter on Tina's blog, I decided to order some. If you use the coupon code "COCO10" you get 10% off your order. Also, if you order 5 or more jars, shipping is free.

I got Vanilla Cake Batter and Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie.

I've only tried the Vanilla Cake Batter. It tastes deliciously coconut-y and vanilla-y. :) It's not as smooth
as Artisana though, which is sad. I really love how Artisana is creamy and melty.

I decided to use some of my new coconut butter to make a recipe from Nikki's website.

Coconut Pancakes
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 bananas
  • 4 Tbsp. Coconut Butter
Mix together well. I used an immersion blender to make sure my mixture was homogenous.

Then cook in a non-stick pan. I had some trouble cooking them. Here is a picture of the only decent-looking pancake that I got:

The rest kind of turned into a pancake stir-fry. O.o The coconut butter made these pancakes taste deliciously rich. If you've been making the two-ingredient pancakes that have been making their rounds around the internet, then try adding some coconut butter to make them even better!
