Ingredients

Blackberry "Cake" Batter

  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes (or about 2/3 cup coconut butter, see notes)
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/16 tsp pure stevia or monkfruit extract or 10-15 drops, to taste
  • dash himalayan pink salt

Optional, for rolling

  • 1-2 Tbs unsweetened coconut flakes

Instructions

  • Begin by making coconut butter by blending coconut flakes in a food processor for about 15-25 minutes, until liquified (scraping down the sides as needed). Or use store-bought coconut butter (see notes below)
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and blend again. Taste and adjust for sweetness.
  • Use a cookie scoop to make balls. Roll each ball of dough in your hands and place on a parchment-lined plate. (If batter is still too melted or sticky, freeze for a few minutes to firm up)
  • Optional: roll in coconut shreds or dip in vanilla glaze (recipe below)
  • Freeze for 15-30 minutes to set, then store in the fridge. Enjoy!

Notes

To store: Keep refrigerated. Do not store in the freezer or they will turn too hard.
Store-bought coconut butter: I recently discovered Thrive Market brand, which is much more affordable! (don't forget, you can save an additional 25% on their discounted prices with my link here) :)
To use store-bought coconut butter,
  • Place your jar/packet in a bowl of hot water to melt it
    • This may take around 10-15 minutes.
    • Do not melt in the microwave, because that can cause the texture to seize.
  • The jar must be melted and completely stirred each time you use it because the oil rises to the top and needs to be incorporated back in.
Featured Products:
Food processor - available on Amazon. I have used for the past 6+ years and it still works great for making homemade coconut butter (and almond butter!)
Sweeteners: Stevia and monk fruit extracts and drops are interchangeable in this recipe, however monk fruit is a little sweeter. I always recommend starting with a lesser amount and adjusting to taste as you go!
  1. Pure Stevia Extract available on Amazon
  2. Pure Monk Fruit Extract available here (use code PRETTYPIES for 20% off)
  3. Stevia drops available on Amazon
  4. Monk fruit drops available from:
You may use frozen blackberries only if they are thawed and drained first. Frozen fruit will harden the coconut butter and make it clumpy.
Optional Vanilla Glaze:
  • 2 Tbs refined coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp coconut milk
  • 5-8 drops vanilla stevia or 2 drops monkfruit, to taste
