Raw Cacao And Coconut Haystacks - Paleo And Keto Variations

Raw Cacao and Coconut Haystacks

My haystacks are the perfect combination of melt-in-your-mouth, sweet and salty chocolate and creamy coconut butter that delicately coats crispy, crunchy coconut flakes.  Just wait till you taste them!
Author Butter For All


  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Maple Sugar Coconut Sugar or Monk Fruit Sweetener if Keto
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/2 Pound Unsweetened Coconut Flakes about 4 1/2 cups
  • 1 Tablespoon Powdered Sugar optional


  1. In a small saucepan melt the cacao, coconut butter, coconut oil, sweetener, salt and vanilla over low heat. Stir this mixture until completely melted and smooth. Set the melted chocolate aside for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the coconut flakes to a large bowl and pour the melted chocolate over the flakes. Stir well to coat the mixture evenly.
  3. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop the mixture onto the parchment in 12 even piles per sheet. Use your fingers to shape them into nice round haystacks.
  4. Refrigerate the haystacks until completely chilled. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
