Frequently Asked Questions


Is Nikki’s Coconut Butter Soy-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Gluten-Free?

Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes.  Every flavor of Nikki's Coconut Butter is free from soy, milk, egg, and gluten products.  The only known allergens that are contained with Nikki’s Coconut Butter are nuts and coconut. 

 

Do you offer any flavors that don’t contain nuts?

Yes, our Vanilla Cake Batter does not contain any nuts.  It is made from organic coconut, organic coconut oil, organic honey, organic vanilla extract, and sea salt.  Even though it does not contain nuts, customers with nut allergies should still be aware that it is produced in the same facility and equipment as our other nut-based coconut butters. 

 

Is Nikki’s Coconut Butter Organic?

At this time, our products are not certified organic although many of the ingredients we use are in fact, organic.  We always use organic coconut, organic coconut oil, organic cocoa powder, organic vanilla extract, and organic honey.  Some of the other ingredients we use are not organic, but it is our goal to have all of our coconut butters produced organically in the near future. 

 

Are there any sweeteners in Nikki’s Coconut Butter?

The only sweetener we use in Nikki’s Coconut Butter is a little bit of either organic honey, organic maple sugar, or dates.  Coconut tends to have a natural sweetness, so Nikki’s Coconut Butter tastes like a dessert with very little added sweetener in each jar. 

 

Is Nikki’s Coconut Butter compatible with a paleo, vegetarian, or vegan diet?

Yes, all of our products were designed to be compatible with a paleo or vegetarian diet.  If your vegan diet allows for organic honey, then it is compatible with your vegan diet as well.  Our seasonal Pumpkin Spiced Donut flavor is vegan since it does not contain any honey.

What do you recommend eating Nikki’s Coconut Butter with?

A spoon.  We wish we were joking but that is usually how we end up eating it ourselves.  We also like to combine Nikki’s Coconut Butter with fruit, added to smoothies, blended into coffee, or as a baking ingredient in desserts.  Although we tend to stay away from grain-based products ourselves, Nikki’s Coconut Butter goes really well with graham crackers, toast, and similar products.  If you’re still looking for inspiration, check out our recipe page!

 

I opened my jar and there is liquid/white solid on top of my coconut butter.  Is this normal?

Yes.  Similar to a natural peanut butter or almond butter, there is typically some separation that occurs with Nikki’s Coconut Butter as it experiences temperature changes while it is being delivered to our customers.  The difference between Nikki’s Coconut Butter and most other nut butters is that coconut oil becomes solid at a temperature below about 75 degrees.  This means that some customers may receive jars with some liquid coconut oil on top and others may receive the same jar but with a white solid coconut oil on top.  The separation is natural and will not compromise the quality of the product.  We recommend heating the jar above 80 degrees so that the oil becomes liquid and can be stirred in with the rest of the coconut butter. This can be done by microwaving the jar in 30-40 second intervals or heating in double boiler. 

 

Does the texture of Nikki's Coconut Butter vary with temperature? 

Nikki's Coconut Butter is sensitive to temperature because the coconut oil solidifies in temperatures below 75 degrees making the overall texture dry and flaky. This is more frequent in winter months due to colder temperatures outside while the coconut butter is being delivered to our customers. To get a creamier texture, we recommend heating the jar above 80 degrees so that the oil becomes liquid and can be stirred in with the rest of the coconut butter. This can be done by microwaving the jar in 30-40 second intervals or heating in double boiler.
