If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know I love any kind of butter and especially anything that I can make at home. So it shall come to no surprise to you that I am posting this. Not only is this butter simply delicious, but it is one of the easiest things to make and only requires ONE machine, ONE ingredient and of course a storage container.

What you will need:

Shredded Unsweetened Coconut

Do not use low-fat or sweetened coconut flakes. It will not work.  I have tried to make butter out of them, but to no avail. You will end up where you started and that is with coconut flakes. And yes, I have tried baking them to dry them out. It just doesn’t work.

 The ONLY appliance you will need:
A food processor (yep, you read right)

Course: Do-It-Yourself, How-To
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2-2 2/3 cups of Shredded Unsweetened Coconut


  • Place the shredded coconut into a food processor and spread it out evenly.
  • Set the pulse to HIGH and leave it to run for 5-8 minutes. You may need to check it halfway through to run a spatula along the inside to ensure that all the flakes have processed through. Time will be dependent on how many cups you are wanting to process.
  • Once you're done processing, pour the coconut butter into a jar, cover it with a lid and store at room temperature. It will solidify to room temperature as it cools.

    Sammy, I seen in an earlier blog post that you’ve made your own Almond Flour? I was wondering if you could post that recipe? We are a gluten free /Oat allergy family and I would love to know how to make my own Almond flour because I recently found some at the store for $10 a 1lb. bag. Way too expensive!

    Thank you so much for sharing all these awesome recipes with us!

    Hi Tatyana!

    I’m so sorry that I am just responding. I did not see this sooner! It’s really easy to make almond meal/flour. Simply toss the almonds into a food processor and pulse. I would hold the pulse button and stopping it every so often to prevent from over processing and making almond butter! Make sure you store it in an airtight container in either your fridge or freezer! I use a mason jar. 🙂

    You would use the as a butter substitute in recipes? Doesn’t quite taste like I want it on toast lol.

    You can use it in recipes, but I don’t think it will be the same exact replacement for regular butter. And I have put it on toast, like I would jam or a nut butter & liked it.


    Would this work with unsweetened dessicated coconut???
