Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place dried, shredded coconut in food processor. Process for a couple of minutes. (It will seem like the coconut is too dry and you will want to add liquid. DON'T DO IT! Just keep processing. Eventually it will start to cling together and get oily-ish!)
  • 2. Once it starts to get quite moist, add all remaining ingredients and process again until almost similar in texture to wet oily peanut butter! Or hummus! You know, all wet! (Or perhaps not QUITE as wet as hummus or PB, a bit crumblier than that, but it should definitely be moist and not grainy at all.)
  • 3. Spoon your crazy white mixture into whatever molds/dish you want and PRESS DOWN FIRMLY WITH YOUR HANDS. (I don't have a lot of fancy cooking molds, so I just threw the mixture into a shallow glass dish and PRESSED IT DOWN FIRMLY with my hands.)
  • 4. Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes. (It will harden and turn into what you see in the pic.)
  • 5. YOU NOW HAVE RAW WHITE CHOCOLATE. Store it in the freezer at all times. Don't eat too much or you'll get a chocolate headache lol.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Now, this recipe will confuse and confound you. Why? Because it is so easy and bizarre and the coconut transforms into "white chocolate" right in front of your eyes. In fact, you just have to try it to believe me! OK, so as you can see, I call it "white chocolate" even though it is mostly coconut. It does have a coconutty flavor, so do not be surprised about that, but to me it tastes more like white chocolate than like coconut. This raw white chocolate recipe is ridiculously sweet and heavy, so you can really only handle a nibble at a time.

A food processor is definitely required for this recipe. People, when I say that, you must listen to me. Stop blending when I tell you to processs, k? :) And vice versa. Said with love! Because I want you to succeed at this whole raw food thing!

I keep it in the freezer all the time. If you let it get warm, it will get all messy.

TIP: If you are one of those fancy people, you can use candy molds to make all different kinds of white chocolate candy, but all I did was press it into a dish and then cut/break into pieces once frozen. Because I am SO not fancy!

TIP: Leave a few tablespoons of the mixture in its unfrozen state and you can use the crumbly stuff for fun things, like crumbly sweet topping over chopped berries <drool>

CLARIFICATION: I took this picture with coconut oil in the background, but I did not use any coconut oil in this recipe. Sorry to confuse you. I was just uncooking up a storm yesterday and took a whole bunch of pictures at once.

Hi! I tried making this recipe and could not get the shredded coconut to turn into coconut butter. I had it in the food processor for a very long time but only small pieces formed together, and the rest was still crumbly. Any tips? Thanks so much!!

This is so simple and delicious! I eat gluten free, sugar free, meat, dairy, and egg free, but not entirely raw. I rely on your website quite frequently for easy recipes and have not been disappointed with any I have made so far! This white chocolate recipe is delicious. I can't get enough of it...even though I'm not a fan of real white chocolate :)

Can't seem to get shredded coconut very easy in the UK :-( So used desiccated coconut and threw in some cashew cream to help bind as wasn't going very oily as coconut so small to begin with!

Very yum!! Thank you!! xx

Awesome Gloria! Looks like it turned out really well for you. I always wonder about this one since there's lots of questions in the comments about it, but it looks like you've mastered it. Did you find it difficult to process?

Holy cow(less)! I stumbled across your site and just made a batch of this and boy oh boy is it yummy! I LOVE coconut anything, and I've made coconut butter from dried coconut before, but I've never taken it to this level. This is a keeper. I have a recipe for raw chocolate chip cookies and I think I'm going to use some of this for the chips. Thank you!

I love these, but has anyone else had a problem not being able to get the bars out of your glass pan?

Hi Becky, I find that the first one is really hard to get out and it gets a bit busted up and mangled, but then the rest aren't too bad. I use a sharp knife combined with a small metal spatula

Firstly thanks for great recipes and inspiration :)
Why do you say not to make this recipe in a blender? I tried it in a food processor and it just wasn't coming together so I added a bit of coconut oil. Still didn't want to go smooth so I ended up putting it in my Hi-blend and then I got a much better texture. I also added some cacao butter for a more chocolatey flavor :) just put it in the freezer. It was a bit if a mission but I'm sure it's going to be yum!
I also make brownies using my blender and they

Hi Raine,

I'm glad that it worked out well for you in your blender.

My general rule of thumb is to make liquid/wet items in the blender and dryer items in the FP. And I stick by my rule because it tends to work best for me :)

Warmth,
Laura-Jane
