Apple Pie Coconut Butter Treats [AIP/21DSD Friendly]
I maaaaay like coconut butter even more than I like Paul Walker. I cried when he died last year. He was my first boyfriend. I had his poster hanging above my bed from age 12-15. One time it fell off the wall onto my face when I was sleeping, so technically Paul Walker's abs have touched my lips.
Coconut butter has infinite possibilities in the world of 21dsd "treats". It carries other flavors super well and hardens into the creamy texture of white chocolate. I have a lot of plans in the works for more coconut butter cup flavors. It's pretty much fool-proof if you combine it w/ the right proportion of melted coconut oil and toppings.
I bought my first pair of LuLu pants yesterday in the midst of their see-through legal fiasco. These are not translucent but the sports bra I got gives me WAY too much boobie lift for the gym. I think Planet Hollywood would certainly kick me out like they did to that chick showing skin + intimidating fellow gym goers with her tight bod a few weeks ago. I got the

ones. They make for a nice tush so I skipped my squat workout today.
I suggest doubling the recipe + keeping these in the freezer for a healthy weekday treat! Just try to remove them from the freezer a few minutes before you want to chow down so you don't break a molar.
