As you guys know I loveeeeeeee nut butters, and Coconut Butter is definitely up there on my list. I add it to oatmeal, toast, I bake with it, and often times eat it straight out of the jar. Moderation is key!
Coconut is low in cholesterol and sodium, and it is a good source of fiber. Although coconut contains high amounts of saturated fats, not all saturated fats pose as a health problem, especially those linked with coconut.
Cinnamon helps lower blood sugar levels and can help lower bad cholesterol (LDL).
