  • batty's blueberry butter balls. with b-coconut.


    this is a fun and tasty way to get your fat on. beware, these are addictive, and should only be consumed in moderation.

    INGREDIENTS:
    1 cup butter, unsalted
    1/2 cup blueberries
    2 egg yolks
    3 T shredded coconut, unsweetened
    1T vanilla

    DIRECTIONS:
    let the butter sit out until soft. puree your blueberries in a food processor. if they are frozen, defrost them first otherwise they'll give you all kinds of issues when you mix them in with the butter. in a medium mixing bowl, add egg yolk, butter, vanilla, and blueberries. use a hand mixer to combine everything until fluffy and peak-y.



    you *can*, if you want, add some honey, but it is absolutely not necessary if you have good quality blueberries and vanilla. you can probably add a dash or two more vanilla, too, to taste.

    fold in the coconut until well combined. stick the entire bowl in the fridge and let sit for 45 mins to an hour. you want the mixture pretty solid.

    take the mixture out and form into one inch balls. roll in extra shredded coconut to coat.



    store in an airtight container in the fridge, otherwise they'll get all melty on warm days.



    VARIATIONS:
    these are awesome as is, but you can also add ground almonds, walnuts, shredded dried figs, etc, for added texture and flavor. i didn't because i am avoiding that stuff

    enjoy!

        I may have to try these with the strawberries I have in the fridge. I find blueberries too sweet/bland.

                              DR blueberry butter sounds like a FANTASTIC idea!!! If you just don't roll it in coconut they would be absolutley amazing over almond flour or coconut pancakes/waffles! Blueberry butter rolled in coconut sounds pretty amazing too though, thanks batty!
