These are so so good. I toasted some raw sunflower seeds and added them as well as some unsweetened coconut. I made half a recipe and got 16 squares (put into an 8 x 8 pan). The bombs are very filling and I'm using them for lunch now because I stay full so long.

I made a half recipe last night because I only had 4oz. of coconut butter. I did add 2tbs of PB2 into the mix and I love these!

I just made these the other night and they were SO good. I used the peanut butter mixed w. flax from Trader Joes (1/2 cup) coconut butter (1/2 cup) and butter (1 stick) I mixed this together and added a few drops of sweetener. For a mold, I used a silicone ice cube tray, perfect! After letting it cool a bit, I added a chopped LC chocolate bar. (78% cocoa)

Honestly probably the best thing Ive ever made. Ive tried to make a lot of these, but I think the butter helps out a lot. I also love the little crunch of the flax seeds

I may be making these this weekend. Along with key lime cheesecake muffins!

For those that HAVE made them....do you dip them in the melted chocolate afterwards or leave them as is?

Brendajm, You can order it. (Idk anything about Trader Joe's) But it is super simple to make if you have a good food processor or magic bulllet or Ninja or vitamix. Put in unsweetened coconut, warmed coconut oil (I found that warming it makes it work faster) and stevia or sweetener or choice. Give it a good whirl until it turns to butter.

Using peanut butter was pure inspiration for me because my butter melted completely and I had the PB2 on hand and that stuff is like a sponge. I was going to add SF chocolate chips to the mix but my Pit Bull is a beggar and she wouldn't have been able to have any. Kids, I swear!

Is it bad to be 2:30 in the morning and about to make these? Also, I'm just going to make 1/4 of the recipe, so many times I have been disappointed making something only to throw out most of it. But being peanut butter and coconut and going to add chocolate chips....MMMMMM!

Well...it's a good thing I only made 1/4 of it, 'cause I dang near ate half already! WOW! I used crunchy Peter Pan, added sf choc chips, slapped it all in a cool whip bowl, too lazy to try and find a muffin pan this time of morning. I didn't even let it cool completely! Next time I'll use creamy pb and add walnuts. Yummy YUMMY!

Anyone?


I am going to make these today at some point. I bought fresh ground almond butter at the health food store yesterday. I had a jar in my hand of some brand till I got to the counter and saw they do almonds as well as peanuts. It was so much cheaper than some name brand and I know when it was ground! I also grabbed a dark choc chocoperfecton bar there. I am going to chop some of that up to put in.

Thanks for the recipe to make the coconut butter. I tried with a food processor and it didn't work. I didn't even think of my vita-mix.
I'm going to try this Thanks.

You are welcome. I couldn't get it to work in the food processor either. I used my Ninja. I did a gallon size bag of LARGE coconut flakes. I heated up the coconut oil in the microwave for just a bit. Not until its hot but it was pretty warm. Turned it on and poured the oil in. I did have to stop it once or twice adn push the mixture down but it only took about 5-6 minutes for it to become liquid.

Hi Rose, I make it in the food processor all the time, and I have a cheapie black and decker. It does take a while though. I just put it in and let it rip until it turns to butter. I find if I leave it runnning long enough, I don't even need to add coconut oil at all. I'm sure the Vita Mix will do it faster though, but if you do try it again in your food processor, just leave it going long enough.

Thanks Heather. I have a bag of coconut in the freezer. I will try this tomorrow. The last coconut butter I bought off line and it was pricey

Let the coconut thaw. The oil will just get hard if the coconut is cold

Thanks Heather. I think the vita mix is the way to go.

Hi Tulip
I did let rip for a long time.

Wish me luck.

Oh OK, The Vita Mix will probably do a better job. Just thought I'd mention to let it rip for a while because the first time I saw the recipe posted, a few of us had that same issue and the person that posted said we needed to let it go for quite some time so I did it with my second batch and it worked great. I just go about my day and keep checking on it. Your Vita Mix will probably work much better.

When I tried it in my food processor the morot got hot and I was scared to let it go longer. Lol the Ninja does it faster with no fire danger.
