Energy Bites, Donuts, and More with Binnie's Coconut Butter

If you're looking for a sweet spread that's healthy for you, then Binnie's Coconut Butter is just for you! It is made with just a few simple ingredients, but tastes like candy! The coolest part about this coconut butter is how SPREADABLE it is! It's perfect to top your favorite treats and snacks! 

If you're unsure of what coconut butter is, check out this info from their website:
Coconut oil is the oil extracted from the coconut, while coconut butter is made from shredded coconut or the meat of the coconut and coconut oil. Similar to peanut butter, we use Binnie’s Coconut Butter as a superfood spread on toast, in smoothies, on pancakes or waffles, as a fruit dip, on sweet potatoes, and as a substitute for butter or toppings in baking! The possibilities are endless!

Coconut is full of medium-chain triglycerides which is saturated fat that is GOOD for you! It’s metabolized in the liver and used up as energy right away WHILE keeping you full and satisfied for longer. Coconut is classified as a “superfood” and has a wide range of health benefits from stimulating the metabolism, improving brain function, and it even contains lauric acid, which kills bacteria and can ward off infections in the body. So, yeah, we agree with the “superfood” thing.

We loved it straight from the jar with a spoon, but we also loved it in our oatmeal, smoothies, on top of pancakes, and inside some delicious recipes!!!
