I got tired of swiping a dozen pieces of toast twice every day.
You know the drill… Peanut butter AND jam, or butter AND honey. Too much swiping!
So I wanted to make this process more efficient — while keeping yummy taste and healthful goodness. Please welcome this Spiced Honey Coconut Spread. It's a new family favorite!
Just one swipe and you're done.
Honey and coconut make a delectable pair. We also add nutrient-dense, sweet spices and a pinch of sea salt. This makes for a delicious, highly nutritious, quick, and easy spread for breads! Not to mention hot cereals, fruit, or anything else begging for a new flavor.
So, why these ingredients?
Solidified coconut oil spreads like a dream. Also, it is less allergenic than nut-based spreads or butter (though you can certainly use those!). Finally, it acts as an antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antioxidant.
Raw honey also contains antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. This makes it a very healing food.
Unrefined sea salt provides our bodies with needed trace minerals.
And the spices included in this recipe have antioxidant properties.
Every bite is tasty and highly nutritious as well!
Spiced Honey Coconut Spread
- 1 cup solidified unrefined coconut oil
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup raw, local honey, to taste (or whatever raw honey you can find/afford)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
Makes 1-3/4 cups to 1 pint.
Place all ingredients in your food processor. Process on high for about 1 minute. Don’t over blend, or the coconut oil will liquefy and separate from the honey. Once your spread looks similar to what you see in the picture below, transfer to a pint-size jar for storage.
Next, spread this delicious “butter” onto your breads, biscuits, rolls, pancakes, waffles, or other breads that yearn for a welcome new flavor.
For another fun idea, top your hot cereal with it. A simple spoonful of the spread, raisins, chopped walnuts, and whole milk provides for a beautiful, comforting breakfast. The spices are delightful!
