The healthiest coconut oil recipes on the internet. Paleo, low carb, gluten-free, grain-free and so delicious!
Coconut oil is the new olive oil. It’s the oil being promoted all over creation for its health benefits, protection against heart disease, Alzheimer’s and any other major malady you can think of. Every TV and Internet doctor on the planet seems to be jumping on the coconut oil bandwagon. I myself am not at all qualified to speak to the health benefits of this oil over others, so you won’t hear any of that from me. I do believe it to be very healthy, but I believe a lot of oils and fats are healthy and I like to vary the sources of fat in my recipes. It’s a great way to change up the flavours and textures of your foods while still enjoying a healthy fat intake.
But to say I like extra virgin coconut oil would be a huge understatement. I LOVE extra virgin coconut oil and I always have a big jar on the go in my kitchen. I love the flavour and I love the tenderness it lends to baked goods. I am partial to Kelapo brand and I can honestly eat it right out of the jar. Yes, yes I can. And getting a good quality virgin coconut oil is key to accessing any of those health benefits that everyone’s talking about. Refined coconut oil is just not the same thing.
