  1. This recipe looks divine and I’ve shared it with my readers in the Hashimoto’s community — thank you!

    A few of us are taking a break from coconut. What is a fitting substitute for coconut butter. I’ve used it in the past and love it but my body is currently reacting.

    Thanks in advance for any alternates!

    • How about macadamia nut butter? You want to be careful of almond butter and other nut butters because of the PUFAs. But mac nut butter is amazing. 🙂 or you could try grass fed butter too, and make it like a buttermint with chocolate.
