I'm sure this isn't the optimal way to use this .. but I spoon out a bite almost every day. It is very addicting. Tastes just like eating coconut meat from a coconut. I do use it on toast and have spread it on hot pretzels and a spoonful in my coffee. Yummy.
Mmm Coconut Butta..
Love love love this!!! I put it on toast and I've also been know to just take a spoonful and snack on it. It's delicious =D
hard to work with, but very tasty
This product can be confusing as on first try it may seem to be nothing more than coconut oil. This is because the oil floats to the top and hardens on top of the also pale-colored manna content, and the product must be warmed and stirred very vigorously to get it to a consistent texture. If you have a boiler system with old-style radiators, you may find this the easiest (if not fastest) way to get it sufficiently warm in winter. Mixing it is much like mixing natural peanut butter but a bit harder. Once it's mixed, though, it will grow on you quickly. The grainy texture is unusual but the flavor is great and it seems to be a good, substantial energy burst. It has, I think, overall fewer calories and more fiber than peanut butter, but less protein. Also, the fats in coconut don't seem to pack the pounds on.
This holiday season I dumped a heated jar of it into a saucepan and used a potato masher to work in cocoa powder, agave, brown rice syrup and extra coconut oil and rolled it up into balls as a healthy option amongst all the cookies. They turned out well and I'll probably make a non-chocolate and less sweet version just to keep in the fridge since they are so much easier to eat than scooping spoonfuls out of a jar after heating it up. It's good spread on bagels and toast. I've also added it to cobbler dough to bake on top of vegetable stew, and it lent a nice texture.
Definitely worth a try, just know that it requires a little handling.
