Are you getting enough grass-fed butter in your diet? Grass-fed butter is a nutritional powerhouse, and unless you have a dairy allergy, I think you should be including it in your diet everyday.
(Experienced real foodies know what I’m talking about, but if you’re new to real food you should check out this post on why butter is good for you.)
Not all of my meals lend themselves to being topped with butter, so I’ve developed a few candy-like recipes that make it easy to add some butter to the end of a meal or snack.
One of my favorites is these cinnamon butter bites.
Flavorful, slightly sweet, and with a whipped taste vaguely reminiscent of frosting, these cinnamon butter bites are a delicious way to eat your healthy fats.
Where to Find Grass-fed Butter
While you can use any butter for this recipe, you’ll get better nutrition as well as better flavor if you opt for grass-fed butter.
Depending on where you live, you may have several different varieties of grass-fed butter available to you. Personally I exclusively buy Kerrygold butter because I can get it at my local Costco for a very affordable price.
If you’re not a Costco member, you can also find grass-fed butter at health food stores like Sprouts, Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods.
Local grass-fed dairies also often sell grass-fed butter, although that option is likely to be more expensive.
Looking for More Healthy Fat Recipes?
Coconut oil is another healthy fat that I try to incorporate into our diets everyday. If you’re a fellow coconut lover, you need to try my many coconut oil recipes, like homemade mint chocolate, coconut oil fudge, lemon coconut delights, and coconut berry delights.
Now, onto the cinnamon butter fat bombs!
Notes on the Recipe
I use salted butter in this recipe because my most affordable grass-fed butter option is buying salted Kerrygold butter at Costco.
You can certainly substitute unsalted butter, just be sure to add some salt to taste.
This recipe was inspired by the cinnamon kisses in the GAPS cookbook Internal Bliss.
Equipment You’ll Need:
- Food processor (I use this one)
- Silicone chocolate molds (I like these) OR a cutting board lined with parchment paper
- 1 pound salted butter, preferably grass-fed
- 1/4 cup honey (OR 1 tablespoon honey and 20 drops SweetLeaf clear liquid stevia)
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Salt to taste, if using unsalted butter
- Allow butter to soften on your counter until it is slightly squishy.
- Add butter, cinnamon, honey/stevia, and vanilla extract to your food processor. Process for a couple of minutes to mix ingredients and achieve slightly whipped taste. Stop food processor as necessary to scrape down the bowl and reincorporate ingredients.
- Spoon butter mixture into silicone molds, Alternatively, you can line a cutting board or other flat surface with parchment paper and then spoon dollops of butter mixture onto the parchment paper. (This is not as pretty but it works just as well, and is actually my preferred method if I'm not taking a photo!)
- Freeze for an hour or two, then remove from parchment paper or molds and store in a container in your freezer. Enjoy!
