Coconut Oil Honey "Butter"

Are you ready for an alternative to Honey Butter?  An alternative that might even taste BETTER than real honey butter?  I know, that is a bold statement, but you gotta try it to believe it.  I can't even begin to describe how AMAZING this tastes.
Some say coconut oil is better for you than butter.  It has ZERO cholesterol and ZERO trans fats. Flavor-wise, I LOVE IT, but like any other butter or oil, this is still something you would want to enjoy in moderation.  A small amount on a slice of bread is plenty. 
This isn't the first time I have made this.  The first time I smothered it over warm rolls a few months ago, but this time I was craving my favorite Copycat Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat Bread.      

That hearty, dense, delicious bread topped with this creamy spread is so irresistible that you better make two loaves of bread while you are at it.  

You know what else I love?  You don't have to store the leftover "butter" in the fridge.  So, it always stays soft and creamy and spreadable.

    1. Maybe it's a difference in the brand? I use Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil from Costco. It is pretty firm and you have to scoop it out with a spoon, but once you add the honey and mix it with the beaters for a few minutes it softens up and is creamy and spreadable. How was yours?

  7. I am using the same oil as you Jenn. Mine is in liquid form because my house is warm- I live in Arizona. My oil is always liquid and I have read that coconut oil is very sensitive to temperatures and can be a solid, liquid and even a liquid with chunks of solid. I have read that you measure it out the same regardless?? (I am new to the coconut oil lovers/ users). Well, I am having the same problem as Kelli, it is not becoming fluffy. I am trying to thicken it up in the fridge for a bit then I will try to beat it again....
    Alright, so I kept the coconut oil/ honey mixture in the fridge till the top layer became cloudy and like a shell. I beat the mixture and it came out perfect! I just tried it on the recipe link below and it was so good! Now I will just have to wait and see how it wants to be stored, fridge or no fridge. :)

    I hope this is helpful Kelli and Jenn. Sorry that I am months late responding.

  8. If I add cinnamon to this, would I then need to store it in the fridge?

    Thanks!

    1. This will be great with cinnamon and no, it won't need to be stored in the fridge. Thanks.
