Sweet potato butter recipe plus new flatbread

by purelytwins

Lori and I have been busy girls in the kitchen. We have a lot of fun recipes coming here soon.

dairy free coconut butter

Today’s recipe is something fun, different, and simply amazing!

The recipe is inspired from our easy pumpkin butter from a few years ago that we just love.

We had some sweet potatoes on hand and coconut butter just screaming at us to make something with it.

Sweet potato coconut butter made from 2 ingredients

We decided on our easy butter using sweet potatoes to make sweet potato butter!  This sweet potato butter goes perfectly with garbanzo bean flatbread. Our favorite ingredients – sweet potatoes, garbanzo bean flour, buckwheat flour, and coconut butter!

Verdict?

AMAZING

As if we did not already love sweet potatoes enough, this just makes them more irresistible. And how can you go wrong with coconut butter?? rich, creamy…full of vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and fiber.

This sweet potato coconut butter recipe is free of wheat, gluten, eggs, dairy, and soy.

This flabtread is inspired by our love of socca, but decided to call it flatbread as it is a mix of garbazno and buckwheat. Has a very similar idea behind it, like socca – easy to make, few ingredients, but felt since it is not like traditional socca (which is just garbanzo beans, salt, &  olive oil) we are referring it as flatbread.

vegan butter

Enjoy.

Cheers to a quick healthy satisfying snack. Full of protein, fiber, and healthy fat!

Surely was a wonderful snack to enjoy in the afternoon .in between training playing with a puppy.

till next time,

I have been making pumpkin butter and sweet potato butter for a long time now but never thought to add coconut oil to it. Bet it makes it really creamy!

Love this post – thanks so much for sharing.

Reply
purelytwins July 3, 2012 - 11:20 pm

Elle we add coconut butter not oil, as the butter makes it more creamy and rich. 🙂

This looks delicious! Could I use just regular buckwheat flour??

Reply
purelytwins July 4, 2012 - 2:48 pm

Mary you can try, it might alter the final flavor, color and possibly texture. But we are all about trying new things so if you like regular buckwheat flour then you will probably like the change 🙂

Um, I need to make this right now. It looks like the most delicious thing ever! And I just made more of your socca last night, and am so obsessed

This sounds wonderful, but I’m wondering how long the butter will keep?

Reply
purelytwins July 9, 2012 - 7:37 pm

Julie the butter should keep about 5-7 days in the refrigerator.

This may sound silly but what is coconut butter??

Reply
purelytwins August 28, 2012 - 9:11 pm

Sarah coconut butter is the meat of a coconut blended up, it is rich and creamy!

siewlingchaw September 29, 2012 - 9:19 am

what can i substitute the coconut butter with ? 🙂

Reply
purelytwins September 29, 2012 - 10:09 am

well it works the best but you could try cashews since it gets soft and creamy too

Reply
Carlie November 12, 2012 - 10:42 am

I have buckwheat flour but not garbanzo…any good substitutions? I want to try this 🙂

Reply
purelytwins November 12, 2012 - 10:50 am

not sure what other good substitutions there would be because the garbanzo bean flour does really well with holding it together like socca. you could try lentil or mung beans, take them whole and grind them into flour and use to replace the garbanzo bean flour. You could try brown rice flour – not sure exactly how it would turn out as we have not tried it.

Mary @ Fit and Fed November 18, 2012 - 3:59 pm

The sweet potato butter looks decadent and delicious! Love the socca variant too. Thanks!
