Serves: 10-12 Balls


  • 1 cup coconut butter(also called coconut cream concentrate or coconut mana)
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut+ 1/2 tsp for topping
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk (or water)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup



  • Add the coconut butter and the shredded coconut to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine. You want the coconut butter to be softened (but not melted), so depending on the consistency of yours, heat it in a double boiler over the stove if needed.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and combine.
  • Begin rolling the dough into balls and place onto a plate lined with baking paper.
  • If desired, sprinkle about 1/2 tsp of shredded coconut on top of the bites.
  • Put the turmeric bites into the refrigerator and chill for a minimum of 30 minutes, or in the freezer for more of a bite.
  • Remove from the fridge and enjoy! Note that these are best enjoyed cold.
