- 200 grams coconut flour
- 200 milliliters water
- 60 grams coconut butter
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 thyme (twigs)
- 75 grams powdered sugar
- 100 grams rice flour
- 100 grams flour

- Turn on the heat and bring the mixture to a boil.
- Reduce the heat, stir often, and add water as it evaporates.
- Cook for approximately 20 minutes, then filter the mixture, use a potato masher for the coconut flour.
- Place the mixture in an airtight container and refrigerate it overnight, the next day, remove the container from the refrigerator, the solid, fatty part on top is the butter.
- Filter the mixture again to separate the fatty part from the liquid. (The liquid part can be added to shampoo or conditioner or used as a moisturizer for the body. The coconut butter is excellent for the skin, the lips, and the hair, and it is obviously edible as well.)
