Recently, we ordered a large amount of nuts, and dried fruit and such in bulk from a local company in Montreal. While living in Texas, access to bulk items at Whole Foods was so easy, but there is sadly nothing like that here in Montreal that I can find. It actually worked out because a local company is giving us a great deal on all the foods we buy. If you have never tried dried pineapple, you have no idea what you are missing. It tastes like candy.

One thing, I made sure to purchase was shredded coconut. You should see the bag of coconut a flakes presently taking up space in my kitchen. I see lots of Homemade Coconut Milk and coconut butter in my future.

I was inspired to make some fresh homemade coconut butter to have handy in the fridge when a recipe called for it. Have you seen the price of one jar of raw coconut butter? It is ridiculously expensive, considering it is just plain old coconut. It is so easy to make- just like my homemade coconut milk.

I think this chocolate coconut spread could easily be used in so many different ways. Perhaps place in  the freezer in a square dish for some chocolate fudge, or spread it on some raw bread or just regular bread. You could also use it as raw pie filling. Why not  try it in my Chocolate Coconut Bars? The possibilities are really endless. I personally just ate it right off the spoon, but that’s just me.

How will you eat it?

    This looks so delish! I’ve been using coconut oil for all my cosmetics, but haven’t cooked with it yet. Need to get on that!

    • Good Girl Gone Green June 6, 2012 at 10:31 am #

      Coconut oil is one of the best oils to cook with as well as make treats with. I use raw cacao powder, dates and coconut oil and make chocolate. Put in the fridge or freezer and you have a chocolate bar!

  12. Jessica June 2, 2012 at 7:52 pm #

    OMGosh! yesyesyes! Thanks for linking up again so I could stumble across this amazingness!!!!!!!

    Wow that sounds SO good Stephanie! I have got to try it soon!

  14. Heathy June 4, 2012 at 11:59 am #

    Mm I love coconut butter… and everything is better with chocolate! Never would have thought to put bananas in it – it probably doesnt last very long that way? (then again I bet I’d eat it all before it had a chance to go bad).

    • Good Girl Gone Green June 6, 2012 at 10:29 am #

      You could probably add dates to sweeten instead and it would last longer.BUt like you said you will probably eat it all quickly anyways! lol

  15. Dennise June 4, 2012 at 12:49 pm #

    Hi, decided to make cocoa bliss also but mine is very bitter. I added some stevia, but did not add the banana. I also added a touch of coconut oil and the vanilla. The $12 jar of cocoa bliss was addictive but I can’t afford it! The coconut butter did not sweeten the chocolate at all. and even tho I used the food processor for over 20 minutes, it did not cream up but remains gritty. I hate to toss this…have any suggestions on how to either sweeten it up a bit to take out the bitterness, or a recipe that calls for coconut butter and chocolate :)…

    • Good Girl Gone Green June 6, 2012 at 10:33 am #

      Add the banana or add date paste (water and dates) to sweeten the mixture. I added a banana to be different but dates will make it sweeter. Not sure why the food processor didn’t work. A high powered blender does work better though.

    Can I ask what form the shredded coconut is in? Where do you buy it? I have only seen shredded coconut at the Bulk Barn in it’s dried form. Please advise- I can’t wait to try this!!

    • Good Girl Gone Green June 6, 2012 at 10:25 am #

      It is dried shredded coconut. I buy it in bulk from a local Montreal company, but I use to buy it at Whole Foods when I lived in the USA.

  22. Pamela June 7, 2012 at 8:52 am #

    I am pretty sure there is a sin involved in this recipe. Ha! Looks delicious. I am eager to try it. And dried pineapple is amazing. I agree–like candy.

  23. Gina June 7, 2012 at 11:03 am #

    I just have to laugh when I pick the posts from the same people in blog hops. Visiting you again and would love to try this recipe. Have a good day!

  24. Bev June 7, 2012 at 11:14 am #

    For some reason, I always thought you had to have fresh coconut to make coconut butter. I am totally going to try this – I have a whole gallon of coconut chips from Tropical Traditions in my cupboard, and this is the perfect use for them. Thanks for linking up to Healthy 2Day Wednesday and come back next week to see if you were featured!

  30. Barb @ Frugal Local Kitchen June 11, 2012 at 1:49 pm #

    Cool! I need to try this for my Nutella-loving daughter.

  31. Alea @ Premeditated Leftovers June 11, 2012 at 10:10 pm #

    What a great treat! This would make an awesome dip for strawberries!

  32. Andrea @ The Greenbacks Gal June 14, 2012 at 6:45 am #

    Can’t wait to try this one! Featured it this week on Your Green Resource and pinned it too.

  33. Jackie @ Crest Cottage June 21, 2012 at 8:51 pm #

    That’s all coconut butter is?!?!?! That’s crazy!! Thank you!

    • Good Girl Gone Green June 23, 2012 at 9:29 pm #

      LOL. Pretty much. Some people use the actual meat of the coconut, but I can never find any!

  34. Meagan July 22, 2012 at 1:18 pm #

    How long do you think this would last in the fridge? Bananas will oxidize after contacting the air… is it a one time eat type of thing?

  35. Marina November 1, 2012 at 3:22 pm #

    just wondering: where do you get your bulk ingredients in Montreal? we are having a hard time finding quality ingredients too..Thanks a lot!

    • Good Girl Gone Green November 1, 2012 at 9:51 pm #

      Marina, I buy my nuts, seeds. coconut flakes, dates etc directly from Prana in Montreal. Prana is all vegan and organic. Other things like beans I buy from Tau. They have a small bulk section. :)

  36. Steph (The Cheapskate Cook) December 6, 2012 at 11:00 am #

    Oh man, chocolate coconut butter? Yes please!

  37. Nat December 20, 2012 at 9:30 am #

    Hi there … a quick question. I made this and it was really yummy. Then I put it in the fridge and it is super hard. How do you handle that when you want to use it again. Do you take it out a few hours ahead? Or do you put the jar in warm water? Any tricks?

    I think I’ll try the almond bark next.

    • Good Girl Gone Green December 22, 2012 at 7:39 pm #

      You can warm it in warm pot of water. If you make just coconut butter without the banana you could leave it out of the fridge and it will stay softer. :)

  38. RT October 4, 2013 at 4:01 am #

    Hi ..do we use fresh wet coconut or dry desiccated coconut for this recipe?
