Great to have you step back in, Sarah.  How've you been?

The unsweetened coconut that I can find is really dry.  I put the coconut in a bowl or plastic bag with a couple of tablespoons of water to get it softened up.  I like the end result without the crunchy coconut.

I agree with Umpa.  A treat the doesn't require that I turn on the oven is perfect for summer.

Thanks for all the Howdys! I've been fine - just busy. I'm going to try beanit butter/sf honey treats next. Put them in the freezer... I might put some nuts in them for crunch. I used to make them with regular peanut butter and honey. Crunchy peanut butter. I'll let you know how it works.

Hi Andrea! :)

Another way to moisten the coconut is to soak it in unsweetened almond milk with a few drops of coconut extract.
And if you nuke it for a few seconds, it will moisten faster. 8)

Thanks for the info, Tony.  I'm used to the soft, sweetened kind.

Add a few drops of FTS zero and you will have something close to the sweetened we are all used to  ;)

I toast my coconut to release the oils thats softens it up too. I like to sprinkle a little on top of my cakes for texture. ;) I do soften and sweeten it before I make my german chocolate cake. :)

Toasted coconut has a wonderful flavor!
