15 Coconut Oil Recipes
Raise your hand if you had a jar of coconut oil in your pantry ten years ago.
Now raise your hand if you have a jar of coconut oil in your pantry today. (Ooh! Me!)
I think it’s safe to say that the times are a-changin’ with cooking oils, and the one I receive the most emails about is the oh-so-popular coconut oil. Everyone (i.e. Pinterest) seems to be obsessed with coconut oil right now! Everywhere I turn people are using coconut oil for cooking, baking, skincare, dental care, and all of the other 100+ supposed uses for coconut oil. And even more uses seem to be to popping up daily. So much coconut oil!!
I’m no expert on the topic — especially involving any uses beyond the kitchen — but I do know that coconut oil has become a staple in my cooking these past few years. I have really enjoyed learning how to substitute it into some of my older recipes, and cook up with some new recipes on the blog to share with you. To be sure, there are many ways you can use this high-heat, mildly-flavored, solid-below-72-degrees, high-smoke-point, vegan, and gluten-free oil with recipes. Mostly, I use it to stir-fry or roast things, since coconut oil is safe for high-heat cooking. But I’m also a big fan of baking, frothing, krispie-ing, melting, and even popping with coconut oil.
(What? Those aren’t all words?)
