Not Butter

I love a variety of foods. But, if there are two things that I really miss having, it would be bread and butter. Together. Following Trim Healthy Mama, we are taught to separate our fats and carbs. That means butter is ok. And so is certain bread.

I love butter, so that’s great! Until I start sneezing. 😒

And I’ve found I do best without gluten, too. 😒

Well, this recipe takes care of the butter problem for me! 😋

There are lots of great low carb recipes that this would be great on. Like the Nuke Queen’s bread by one of the authors of THM.

Not Butter
1 cup light olive oil (to prevent a strong olive oil taste)
2 Tablespoons grated carrots (for color)
1 teaspoon sunflower lecithin granules
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/16 teaspoon butter flavor
1 teaspoon glucomannan, optional
1 cup refined coconut oil (so there’s no coconut taste)

Put all the ingredients besides the coconut oil into the vitamix and run on high till the carrots are totally blended into the oil with no pieces left. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in the coconut oil. Place in the refrigerator to begin to harden, whisking periodically. When it has become creamy and like soft butter, spoon into molds or small containers. Store in the freezer. You can keep one in the fridge for using.

That’s it!

  1. Hi, I would love to make this to have buttered bread for E meals without skimping on the BUTTER. However, I’m not quite sure what you are referring to in your recipe as “1/16 teaspoon butter flavor”. Are you referring to extract or oil? I’m still fairly new, so please forgive me if I should know. Thanks

    1. Sure. It would be extract. I will say, though, that if you are following THM, you would not want to use this in an E as it is high fat and would be the same as butter fuel wise. If you make their Nuke Queen bread, though, which is a FP, you can use this liberally on it for an S! 🙂
