That coconut oil has health benefits is not new news. Even so, I have not embraced it in cooking as much as I would expect. I tend to stick with the more familiar fats – butter, olive oil and canola oil (organic as much as possible!), simply because I know what works for me and what I read most often in recipes.
Lately, I’ve been on a mission to use more coconut oil in cooking and baking. I’ve found that coconut oil is wonderful for roasted veggies, is a no-brainer with curries, and of course coconut + chocolate has got to be one of the most perfect food combos ever!
Are you interested in upping your coconut oil intake too? Here’s a little inspiration for us! I’ve hoping to work my way through this list of recipes during the next month or two. I’ll let you know my favorites via my Facebook page, when I make them.
