Monkey Butter Spread


5 medium-size perfectly ripe bananas, sliced

20 oz. can of crushed pineapple, not drained.

1/4 cup coconut

3 cups of sugar

3 Tbsp lemon juice


Add all of the ingredients to a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir often and then simmer till thick. Spoon mixture immediately into jars and then process in a hot water bath for 15 minutes.

Cookie Butter


2 sleeves graham crackers

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 tbsp packed dark brown sugar

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

3/4 cup coconut oil


Place graham crackers in a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Add the powdered sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Process until finely ground, about 1 minute. Continue grinding till fine or do in small batches in a coffee grinder. Slowly add the coconut oil in a steady stream, stopping and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary, until the mixture is smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer to a jar and seal with a lid. This will last for up to 30 days.
