Get Your Coconut Fix With This Easy Cookie Butter Recipe (With Mounds Bar Pieces!)

Hmmmm, how can we get more cookies into our diet? It’s a problem. Okay, maybe that question has been asked by no one ever, but if you do need a serious cookie fix (and by serious we mean that fix you need after a breakup or accidentally hitting the reply-all button at work), then this coconut cookie butter is the recipe for you. It’s so simple to throw together — cookies, coconut cream, vanilla, a little brown sugar, and a touch of coconut oil — all blended up to silky, smooth deliciousness. Why not take it one step further and add chopped-up Mounds bars! Read on for the deets on this coconut treat.

Ingredients:

Makes one 16-ounce mason jar of cookie butter

  • 40 coconut cookies (the buttery kind, such as Pepperidge Farm, not the macaroon kind)
  • 3 Tablespoons soft brown sugar
  • 4-6 Tablespoons canned coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons melted coconut oil (depending on how oily your coconut cookies are)
  • 2 double Mounds bars, chopped into small chunks

Instructions:

  1. Place the coconut cookies into a food processor and process until they turn to fine crumbs.
  2. Add the brown sugar, four tablespoons of coconut cream, vanilla extract, salt, and coconut oil. Process until the mixture is smooth and creamy. If the mixture is too thick and clumpy, add in 1-2 further tablespoons of the coconut cream and process again.
  3. Spoon one third of the mixture into a sterilized mason jar, top with one third of the Mounds bar pieces, then repeat until all of the mixture is used.
  4. Serve immediately, or place a lid on the jar and refrigerate for up to a week.
