  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut or granulated sugar

  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers (I used Annie’s or Back to Nature)
  • 4 Tablespoons melted coconut butter (more if needed)

  3. Combine coconut milk and sugar in saucepan.
  4. While stirring fairly constantly, bring to a boil and then reduct to a simmer.

  9. Pour into greased 8×8 pan and press firmly into the bottom, ensuring it covers the entire pan.
