I’ve been making my own vegan buttery spread for a while now, and let me tell you – if you choose to imbibe in vegan butter (which we do because…butter), this is a great option.  It’s quick, easy, delicious, customize-able, and a hell of a lot cheaper than buying store-bought.

Because of my deep affinity for all things savory, I have spent my fair share of time experimenting with different garlic/herb combinations using this recipe (and they have been wonderful – oh.  so.  wonderful.), but my dear husband with his raging sweet tooth felt a little left out.

It had never occurred to me that garlic thyme butter was no good on the things he loves to eat for breakfast: pancakes, cinnamon bagels, and the like.  So, I knew I had to find a solution…and I was definitely not following his first suggestion to “just make a plain butter – no spices or seasonings.”

No spices or seasonings?!  None?!  No, no, no.  This would not do.

Save RecipeSave Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup refined coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/4 cup vanilla non-dairy milk
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Heat a small sauce pan on medium and add your coconut oil. Allow it to melt, slowly stirring, and (while still hot) stir in coconut sugar until it is completely dissolved.
  2. Pour this mixture, along with the rest of the ingredients, into a blender or food processor and blend on high for at least 1-2 minutes, until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour into a container, like a butter mold, ice cube tray, or any container and place in the fridge.
  4. Leave in the fridge overnight to set. If you're in a rush, you can also let it set in the freezer, but in my experience the texture is better when it sets in the fridge.
  5. Enjoy on pancakes, French toast, in cookie recipes, on toast, etc.

  1. Hi there!!!! Can't wait to make my own "butter"!!! Is there something I could sub for the Sunflower Oil???
    1. Hey, Brenda! Sunflower oil is what gives this recipe that strong, buttery flavor. It's often what's used as popcorn butter at movie theaters! If you cannot find it though, I have used safflower oil with similar results. Let us know how it goes!
    1. Hi, Karina! I'd say the cinnamon sugar butter will last in the fridge for about 10 days or in the freezer for a month. Honestly, we usually devour it within a week of making it. :)
