The benefits of coconut butter

First and foremost, it is important to know that there is a difference between coconut butter and coconut oil:

  • coconut oil is the oil extracted from the coconut meat. So it mainly consists of fat.
  • Coconut butter is made from the entire coconut, it contains both the oil and pureed coconut meat.

Coconut butter contains certain nutrients that you don't find in oil, mainly a large dose of fiber. It's a real energy bomb:

  1. Coconut butter is rich in lauric acid (which boosts your immune system and fights dangerous bacteria, viruses or fungi)
  2. It boosts your metabolism, therefore it supports weight loss.
  3. Because it stimulates your metabolism, you also get a huge energy boost.
  4. The healthy fats keep you feeling full for a long time.

Chocolate matcha energy balls recipe

What do you need?

For the content:

  • 224 grams of coconut butter
  • 50 grams of grated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder + a little extra for the topping

For the casing:

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder


It can't get any easier than this. Your balls are ready in 1-2-3, you only have to put them in the freezer after rolling, so there is no oven involved.

The steps for the content of the balls:

  1. Add the coconut butter and grated coconut together to a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Then add the coconut flour, coconut oil, honey and matcha powder. Mix again.
  3. Roll the dough into balls in your hands and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  4. Then place them in the freezer for at least an hour, until they no longer fall apart.

For the casing:

  1. Melt the coconut oil together with the cocoa powder into a chocolate sauce. Mix well.
  2. Remove the balls from the freezer (only after an hour) and use a spoon to cover the balls completely with chocolate sauce.
  3. Place them back in the freezer and let them harden for at least another hour.
  4. Are they loud enough? Then you can put them in the refrigerator.
  5. Extra option: you can possibly sprinkle some matcha over the balls.

A tasty and healthy snack!
