Holy Coconuts! (Artisana Nut Butter)

It’s Artisana Coconut Butter time!

Considering my love of Cacao Bliss, and homemade Artisana Cacao Bliss, it’s hard to believe I’ve fallen even more in love with their plain coconut butter.

Seriously, this stuff is like eating shortbread!! But unlike shortbread, Artisana Coconut Butter is 100% raw and organic, with healthy fats and no added sugar. The only ingredient is coconut. Buttery, melty, and oh-so versatile. My numero uno favorite way to indulge is straight up, with nothing standing between me and my coconut-butter goodness. However, if I have to invite other guests to the party, here are some good ones:

First up, we have the easiest-ever Raw Macaroons. I have a friend who said she’d give me her first-born child in exchange for a batch of these every now and then. Sadly for her, I declined. What would I do with a whiney, crying baby anyway? I’d much rather have my raw macaroons.


Artisana coconut butter is amazing icing. Use it on Raw Carrot Cake (above).
I adore slathering it on carrot cake pancakes and cupcakes!

And then there are always the Mounds Bar Pancakes.
Chocolate and coconut were meant to be together.

Other uses for Artisana Coconut Butter:

  • Drizzle on butternut fries or spaghetti squash
  • Use in place of peanut butter in peanut-sauce recipes! (Thai coconut-sauce pasta, anyone?)
  • Mix into oatmeal (or blended grains)
  • Make coconut-butter cookies (recipe coming soon!!)
  • Blend in a smoothie, or spread on a banana or toast (Can I interest you in a coconut butter sammie?)
  • Use as a healthy “syrup” for Carrot Cake Pancakes.

Question of the Day:
Have you tried coconut butter? If so, what’s your favorite way to eat it? Are you as obsessed as I am, or do you not understand what the big deal is?

Like I said above, my favorite way to eat it is straight-up… like coconut fudge! But I don’t think I’ve yet found a single way of eating coconut butter that I don’t absolutely love.

Edit: Try Coconut Butter Melties! 😉

    oh so adore those products and YES …OUCH..15 bucks a jar hurts!

  4. Julia says

    I am dying to try the cashew butter, and the macadamia buttter….and basically everything else. I would be super excited if I could make my own raw macaroons!

  5. Marianna says

    OMG!!! My mouth is watering just thinking about the raw mounds bars! Then, I saw their picture. Now I will be thinking about those delicious treats all day, and may be forced to make some in the very near future 😀

  6. Jennifer - jcd says

    You mean I can only pick one? Blasphemy. Thank you for the great contest. I’ll comment on the carrot cake because I love it so much. But mounds pancakes and macaroon babies deserve some love too because they’re super yummy, I’m sure.

  7. Natalie F. says

    I have tried making my own coconut butter in a food processor before and it was good as a melter into oatmeal because it gave it a nice and nutty taste. I honestly have never tried a bottle brand of it though, probably more tastier than mine would ever be! Haha! Mine was hard as a rock and I always had to pre-warm it just to get it out of the jar so I could use it! Worth it though 🙂

  8. Nina says

    I’ve never tried the cacao bliss and would love to! They don’t have any Artisana products at the Whole Foods nearest me 🙁

  9. Heather says

    I haven’t tried coconut butter yet, but I’d love to. I love pretty much anything coconut. Or chocolate. Or both.

  10. Kaycee says

    Wow I’d love to win this giveaway! Honestly, I have never tried cashew butter, coconut butter, pecan butter, peach butter (woahh sounds exotic =p), and actually NONE of these butters, except for peanut butter (gotta have my Dark Chocolate Dreams) and almond butter (love). But I love trying new things and these would be awesome to try out!

  11. hannahlynn10 says

    I loved to win, I’m a big fan of nut butters!! (As I know so many of your readers are 😉 ) 😀 Thanks for doing another giveaway!

  12. Tricia Marie says

    Thanks to you Katie I am hooked on Coconut butter! I didnt know of its existence until I stumbled upon your blog a few months ago. Ive always loved coconut and was so excited when I saw it that I went out to buy it right away. I eat it almost everyday!! In addition, I’ve been so inspired by your dedication to healthy eating and living that I’ve been putting more effort into buying whole foods and eating more of it on a daily basis. THANK YOU!! Cheers!

    I would love to win the coconut butter…plus all of the other products! I just recently bought a packet of the coconut butter and pecan butter. So delicious and had no idea that coconut butter would taste so yummy even though I love coconut flavors don’t know why it took me so long to try. And i think the carrot cake looks delic. Ive been eying it and hopefully with get the chance to make it when i visit home from college.

  14. K Carloni says

    I have used coconut oil but never coconut butter. I would love to try it. I love your blog – keep up the good work!

  15. Sharlene says

    I LOVE your recipes you give out and other advice… I have a huge sweet tooth but prefer to eat healthy and simply so when I’m craving something sweet I get on this site.

  16. Erica says

    I left a comment on the 24 carrot cupcakes post. Thanks for the great giveaway! I’m almost out of coconut butter so I hope I win 🙂

  17. Jen says

    I love your fudge babies! They are a staple in my fridge daily!!!! I would really like to try Artisana anything! I would love to be in your drawing!

  18. Jessica says

    If I could only be so lucky to win…the poor college student can’t afford to pay the high prices of the coconut butter but I have tried it and it’s OH SO GOOD 🙂

  19. jennifer says

    OH MY GOD. I just scored a jar of this stuff. PERFECTION! The best treat in the world is a spoonful of this straight up! I was searching for recipes and found this page… and then I just thought to myself, why mess with perfection??? I will however, perhaps try the coconut butter instead of peanut butter next time I see it in a recipe. I have a nice peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe that would be awesome! That is, if I have any left…

  20. Cherie Corey says

    This is the first I have heard of this, hopefully i can make some myself. We are just getting our feet wet with this way of eating and I am terrified that i can keep it yummy and exciting for my family..

  21. Kristina says

    Is the “melty frosting” on top of the carrot cake muffins just melted coconut butter, or did you add something else? I just ordered Artisana coconut butter today- can’t wait to try it!
