Many of you asked me of ways to incorporate Coconut Butter into recipes, and besides oatmeal, I’m thinking smoothies, over toast, sandwiches, baked goods, fruits, and even some vegetables. What else is left?
Now coming up with actual recipes that incorporate coconut butter is the challenge, however I’ll have to start by trying out my new creations at home and make sure they are indeed good enough to post.
This Winter Coconut Cranberry Oatmeal is now one of my new favorite oatmeal recipes which is so warm and comforting.
If you decide to give this one a try, let me know what you think. Enjoy!
