Yummy toasted coconut and hazelnut butter

I have a recipe for the tastiest homemade toasted coconut hazelnut butter that I absolutely must share! I believe it was my mother's recipe and I hope to pass it down to my children and hopefully you'll spread the word too.

This tasty treat is so easy to make, delicious, totally natural and full of nutritional value.

All you need is a non stick pan, a food processor, 3 cups of hazelnuts and one cup of unsweetened, shredded coconut.

Start by putting the hazelnuts into the food processor and set aside without turning it on.

Place the coconut into a nonstick pan on your stove and set the gas to a low heat. Brown the coconut for about 2 minutes or until it is crispy, not charred!

Dump the warm coconut flakes over the hazelnuts and turn your mixer on low.

Now, sit back and watch the mixer as it takes two solid ingredients and manages to turn them into one smooth "butter." This usually takes about 10 minutes.

If after ten minutes you are not happy with the consistency, you can add a small amount of real maple syrup. It is important to note that this will thicken the mixture momentarily so make sure to give it an extra two or three minutes in the processor before you transfer it to a mason jar.

Voila! You have fresh, homemade coconut hazelnut butter that will last in your fridge for up to a week. You can use it in sandwiches, as a dip for fruit or even as a topping for ice cream or a replacement of peanut butter in cookies.

Enjoy and share the love!

how to cook maja blanca


mmmm my favourite.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh sweet corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
Directions
  1. Butter an 8-inch baking dish or pie pan, and set aside. Mix 1/2 cup of water with the cornstarch in a bowl, and stir until smooth.
  2. Combine the coconut milk, 3/4 cup of water, and sugar in a saucepan over low heat, and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Bring the mixture to a boil, add the corn kernels, and then stir in the cornstarch mixture, stirring quickly to avoid lumps as it becomes very thick. Bring the mixture back to a boil, and simmer until fully thickened and smooth, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes. Pour the maja blanca into the prepared dish, and set aside to cool until firm, about 2 hours.
  3. Place the coconut flakes in a dry skillet over medium heat, and stir to toast. Watch them carefully so they don't burn. Remove the toasted coconut flakes to a bowl, let cool, and sprinkle over the pudding before serving.
