Is coconut butter one of the limited "nut butters"?


Recommended Posts

This is probably a silly, obvious question but... Coconut butter is separated from other nut butters in the pantry stocking list. There is lots of advice to limit nut butter consumption, but twice as many recipes and suggestions promoting coconut butter. So my question is: is coconut butter still technically a nut butter, and how much of it is ok to eat on a regular basis?

Thank you!

To extend what Susan said, coconut butter is healthier than nut butters, but it is a high fat food that can inspire binge eating. I think it is a bad idea to eat coconut butter by the spoonful, but fine to use an ingredient in things you are preparing.
