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!



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 is what we used to mold our butter, worked great!

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place the coconut oil into baking pan. We like to use a black deep dish pizza pan. While oil heats in pan, place your remaining ingredients into a big bowl and whisk together.
  3. Pour batter into hot oiled pan and bake for about 30 minutes.
  4. Let cool slightly before removing from pan.
  5. Flip out of pan and slice up into desired pieces.

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.

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.

This looks amazing! I appreciate you calling it flatbread too! The food snob in me gets crazy when people refer to things with the wrong name…I know it’s crazy. The sweet potato butter really does sound amazing!

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.

purelytwins July 3, 2012 - 11:20 pm

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

Rachel @ Eat, Learn, Discover! July 4, 2012 - 1:51 am

Mary July 4, 2012 - 1:27 pm

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

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 🙂

Lisa July 4, 2012 - 7:31 pm

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

Maria July 4, 2012 - 10:58 pm

Thanks for sharing this recipe! The sweet potato butter looks amazing, I could eat sweet potatoes allll day long!! Could soya flour work instead of the garbanzo flour?

purelytwins July 5, 2012 - 4:00 pm

Not sure about soya flour. never tried it.

ATasteOfMadness July 5, 2012 - 5:41 am

Julie July 9, 2012 - 4:36 pm

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

purelytwins July 9, 2012 - 7:37 pm

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

Sarah A. August 28, 2012 - 7:59 pm

This may sound silly but what is coconut butter??

purelytwins August 28, 2012 - 9:11 pm

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

Sarah August 29, 2012 - 7:38 am

Oh okay, thanks! It sounds delicious! This recipe sounds amazing and I am looking forward to trying it!

Jaime September 18, 2012 - 3:54 pm

How would I find a store that sells those specialty products?

purelytwins September 18, 2012 - 5:55 pm

sweet potato flour is sold online try amazon

siewlingchaw September 29, 2012 - 9:19 am

what can i substitute the coconut butter with ? 🙂

purelytwins September 29, 2012 - 10:09 am

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

Carlie November 12, 2012 - 10:42 am

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

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!
