Here at Sweet Coconut Bakeryyou will find a Pacific Northwesterner's take on Philippine sweets. Utilizing fresh local ingredients, we put our stamp on Philippine candies and cookies. Vice versa, we explore tropical flavors and incorporate them in popular American sweets.

We are based in Seattle, Washington and ship nationwide. We would be happy to accommodate special requests! Please email Hazel at sweetcoconutbakery@gmail.com if you would like to place a custom order.

PASTILLAS DE LECHE


PASTILLAS DE LECHE
PASTILLAS DE LECHE literally means "milk pills." Traditionally, they are made with only two ingredients: fresh carabao (water buffalo) milk and cane sugar. We can't boast to using carabao milk but we do use the next best thing: fresh organic whole (cow's) milk. 

No condensed milk. No milk powder. No shortcuts!

Making pastillas de leche requires hours on the stove top and frequent stirring. The result is a rich creamy confection that is portioned and shaped, then rolled in sugar, and individually wrapped in parchment paper.

PASTILLAS DE LECHE
We offer various flavors: vanilla, coconut, cashews, langka, chocolate, coffee, and seasonal fruits such as strawberries and cranberries.

MARSHMALLOWS

BLACKBERRY KALAMANSI MARSHMALLOWS
There is nothing like handmade marshmallows! They are light, fluffy, moist, and flavorful. Unlike their factory-made counterparts, these taste real.

In making our marshmallows, we use real ingredients. Instead of corn syrup, we use honey. Instead of fruit flavoring, we use the actual fruit. As a result, our marshmallows are perfect for eating on their own as well as for roasting for s'mores and topping a hot cocoa or latte.

We offer the following flavors: ube coconut, chocolate, vanilla and seasonal flavors such as cranberry chocolate, pumpkin, and blackberry kalamansi (citrus). 

BUKAYO

BUKAYO
Bukayo is a popular Philippine candy made by caramelizing young gelatinous coconut strips. Our version uses all coconut ingredients: young coconut, coconut palm sugar, coconut water, unsweetened dried coconut, and coconut oil. It is vegan, dairy free, and gluten free

MATAMIS NA BILOG (BRITTLE CIRCLES)

ALMOND COCONUT BRITTLE
Matamis na Mani (Philippine candied peanuts) are the inspiration for our brittle circles. Various combinations of roasted nuts and seeds are bound by crunchy caramel and shaped into pretty circles.  Sweet, salty and nutty, these are our most popular gluten free treats
  
HAZELNUT COFFEE BRITTLE

                               

We offer the following combinations: Hazelnut Coffee, Peanuts Cashews Pistachios, Sunflower Coconut, 
Hot Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds with Red Pepper Flakes), Almond Coconut, and Pumpkin & Sesame Seeds.




YEMAS

Traditionally, yemas are vanilla custard candies shaped into balls and dipped in caramelized sugar. This is our inside-out version! The caramelized sugar is in the inside of the candy along with the coconut, and macadamia. To finish it off, we dip it in dark chocolate and roll it in more coconut.

BUTTER COOKIES

Lengua de gato
LENGUA DE GATO
From our trips to Baguio City, we would always bring home a jar or two of these thin, crisp, buttery cookies. They were and still are a popular pasalubong (gift). They taste so heavenly and practically melt in your mouth that one can easily eat a whole dozen without realizing it.

In recreating these gems, we added a little zing by tossing in coarsely ground roasted cocoa nibs.




SAMPAGUITA




Sampaguitas
Sampaguita is the national flower of the Philippines. This is our interpretation of the melt-in-your-mouth cookie named after it. And you guessed it; ours is loaded with coconut!

Soft and chewy, these treats are best described as a cross between coconut macaroons and butter cookies. These are popular at our market booths as well as special orders for weddings and other occasions.







Polvorones
Our polvoron is closer to the original Spanish version which is a shortbread than the Philippine candy made with powdered milk and toasted flour. But similar to the Philippine version, it is soft, crumbly, buttery and just melts in your mouth.

Currently, we have two flavors. One is dotted with milk chocolate chunks. And the other is loaded with coconut and swirls of ube.

SWEET COCONUT BROWNIES

SWEET COCONUT BROWNIE

Here's the best of both worlds: a dark chocolate brownie topped with pastillas de leche

Our sweet coconut brownie is made with dark chocolate, cocoa powder, and coarsely ground cocoa nibs and then  topped with swirls of coconut pastillas de leche (a milk caramel coconut confection). Not too fudgy nor too cakey. Just perfect.






SANS RIVAL

SANS RIVAL

Sans Rival is a cashew meringue confection traditionally filled and topped with buttercream. Our version uses dark chocolate buttercream and a blanket of unsweetened coconut. This popular Philippine dessert is gluten-free.
