YIPEE!!!!!!!!! Chia Seeds AND Agar Agar work so well in your vegan butter recipe...and not coconut flavor at all so tastes like real butter!!!!!!!!!!!...I did not need to go further with Arrowroot or Flax Seeds as I am completely satisfied with Chia and Agar Agar results...Mattie: if it wasn't for your recipe I would have never know the basics for formula/ingredients so I am grateful you posted this recipe... the only change in the Chia Seed or Agar Agar Butter is:
1)...omit the Xanthan Gum. add 3 T. finely ground Chia Seeds (grind almost to powder in spice grinder) or 3 T. Agar Agar Flakes to 2).
2)... Add soy milk. apple cider vinegar. salt. 3 T. finely ground Chia Seeds or Agar Agar Flakes and let sit until curdled (15-20 minutes instead as Chias and Agar Agar have to turn glutinous so it will bind)
4)...add coconut oil (did not put in microwave - left solid). sunflower or safflower oil. Sunflower Lecithin.(I used Sunflower Lecithin as it is healthier than Soy Lecithin for me) and Chia Seed or Agar Agar mixture blending until emulsified. I had to change for my allergy but you Mattie started something good for all who care to listen and experiment for their daily wellness... Blessings...

Owner's reply

So glad this worked out June! I would expect the chia seeds to feel grainy on the palate but maybe not if you grind them way down. Good to know you also had great results with agar. Thanks so much for sharing and I'm so glad you were able to engineer your way to tasty vegan butter!

I did more research for natural alternatives for Xanthan Gum and Guar Gum: this is what most offer: Finely Ground: Chia Seeds. or Flaxseeds or Arrowroot or Agar Agar which are all very good for health effect...I will try each of these including the instant tapioca (even though a thick starch but natural) and be in touch after my experimentation...sounds like a lab kitchen! ha

I made the vegan butter and is it delicious!!! I never have food allergies but after spreading the vegan butter on toast one hour later my throat became sore and swollen...I did some research and found out about Xanthan Gum and Guar Gum can be very harmful to some people and wish I had not used these products(I made a large batch of butter)...I know you need a BINDER to emulsify but I will throw the first butter batch out as I did have a reaction to it and it has been two hours and still have throat problems...I was wondering if I added Instant Tapioca (to apple cider. soy milk. salt mixture so it softens) or Tapioca Flour to bind the oil: do you think this would work? if not, I will keep on researching until I find a more natural product...I really like your recipe for vegan butter: it has very good taste and texture but not all natural product...hope you can understand! :)

I'm looking forward to making this very soon. I don't usually buy soy milk, but when I do, I buy the unsweetened variety. Do you use the sweetened or the unsweetened? I don't mind buying the sweetened if that is your preference as I want my butter to be the best. Thanks!

Sadly.. the writer of the comment below. In case you see this COCONUT DOES NOT CONTAIN CHOLESTEROL! Only ANIMAL products contain cholesterol and last I looked a coconut was a NUT and NOT an animal. Get your facts straight!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this butter! Thank you!! :)

It looks like the comments aren't being answered anymore, but it's worth a shot. I do not own a food processor. I keep considering it but haven't felt like it was worth the extra cupboard space. How possible would it be to use a blender for this recipe?

Wanted to mention that I used Soy Silk Light Original (soy milk partially sweetened by Stevia) with great success. And I found someone recommending http://www.soaperschoice.com/ for very inexpensive, food quality, organic, refined coconut milk. Will be ordering for this site tomorrow, because I'm going to be making lots of this butter :)

Made the original version. The soy lecithin granules I used didn't blend completely, but rather than go over the two minute blend time in the food processor, I stopped blending, filled the silicone tray and froze it. Just had "buttered" toast, and... jeez that's good. Will put the soy granules in a spice grinder first next time?? Just like butter. I'm completely amazed. Now- to find less expensive refined coconut oil. Thank you sooo much for this recipe!

OH how fun was that!! :) I used unrefined coconut oil so it does taste a little too much like coconut for me (even though I like coconut) but I will still eat it. And for $1.25 at the dollar store I found little silicone baking pans that look like a stick of butter and the recipe filled two of them right to the top!! Sweet! I am so excited to try this butter (its currently chilling) and looking SO forward to never having to pay for Earth Balance again.. especially knowing it is not that good for me!! Thank you so much for this recipe!

Hi Matt,
its a little late to ask (i'm going to try make this and then the croissant soon) but is omitting the zanthum gum in the butter going to very badly effect the croissant? Its so unbelievably expense here (New Zealand) and I'm leaving here soon anyway.. Can I add a bit more oil instead of coconut oil to make it malleable?

Like the previous comment by Cat, I'm also hesitant to use Xanthan Gum. The only one we have here in Australia is made in China and who knows what from and what chemicals are in it! Wish I could get organic Xanthan Gum...
