Coconut Nectar

Recommended Posts

Ok so I am doing the Whole30 challenge again starting Tuesday and I was wondering about coconut nectar. I understand that it is basically a variety of sugar but it also has a fairly high nutritional density right? The only thing I use it for is a bonding agent/sweetener for my on the go meal bars (nuts, seeds, dried fruit, ground beef, etc) and occasionally to thicken up my stir fry.

From what I can gather, the only coconut liquid allowed is the full fat coconut milk in the can where the only added ingredient is guar gum. All others are out. It's delicous though, and should still be able to be used in the ways you describe. Good luck. :)

If you're using it as a sweetener then it's out. You can find recipes for homemade lara bars that use dates as a sweetener/bonding agent. at least then you'll reap the benefits of eating the date...the nectar is just sort of concentrated sugar!
