These look amazing...I can't eat butter but I bet they'd work just fine with coconut oil instead. Yum!
Just FYI, if an egg is contaminated with Salmomella the WHOLE egg is. Salmonella in eggs arises from a systemic infection of the hen. Having said that I would still eat raw eggs with wild abandon if I could. The chances are SO LOW of a Salmonella infected egg that its honestly not worth worrying about. Also if you get your eggs from healthy hens (i.e. a local farmer that you trust and stuff) there really should exceedingly low chance of any worries about infected eggs. There was a thread on this a while ago but I cant find it.

I've been eating raw eggs without worry for years. I did learn that eggs should not be washed until you're ready to use them. Something about a protective memberane on the eggs that keeps bacteria out. If you wash them it washes away the membrane and opens the shell up to bacteria sneaking in.
@Bugman I found some in the bulk bins at my local market. Do you have a Whole Foods market where you are or you could check out a health food store for dessicated coconut, which is pretty much unsweetened coconut. What I am able to get isn't in nice long flakes tho, just short little ones, like a 1/4 inch. hth!
