Preheat the oven to 350° F. Whisk together flour, coconut, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and set aside.

Melt the coconut butter in a small pan set over medium heat, then beat in sugar, maple syrup and lemon zest. Using a wire whisk or immersion blender, beat for 1 minute. Blend the wet mixture into the dry ingredients.

Form the dough into small, flat rounds and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake until just browned on the bottom, about 10 minutes. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from sheet.


Coconut butter is a rich, dense, shelf-stable spread that you can find on our grocery shelves.
