Coconut butter is also commonly referred to as coconut manna and coconut cream concentrate.
Coconut manna is kinda the same as any other nut butter, except it has a coarser consistency and coconut is actually not a nut, but a fruit. I only recently discovered coconut cream concentrate and came across a recipe that my kids love. (recipe below)
Coconut manna is essentially blended coconut meat, it's creamy and should not be confused with coconut oil.
Dried, raw coconut meat is pureed to produce a coconut spread. Add 2
cups of raw, dry desiccated coconut or dried coconut shreds to your
mixer and mix until it's a smooth, buttery consistency. (usually takes
between 10 - 20 minutes)
Consistencies differ, depending on the length of time you blend it and the qualities of the coconut you use.

My favorite coconut butter recipe...
Make sure your coconut oil is soft enough to mix well with the other ingredients. Mix everything together and place the mix into your moulds. If you are adding nuts, you can pop them on top now. Leave to harden in fridge. Place them in a glass container. (Keep them in the fridge because they do melt in warmer temperatures)
These coconut candies are quick and easy to make. I make some with nuts on the top for myself ;-) These are really good as a small, healthy snack. Coconut is known for its powerful hunger curbing action. Read more about how coconut can help you lose weight.
