I cook my eggs in Organic VCO all the time and I am super sensative to the taste of coconut and I have never found my eggs to taste or smell like coconut. If I did I would go back to bacon fat or butter.

Hmm, these are so good and good for you! Enjoy indulging every day without guilt. Great fiber! The coconut oil controls weight because it speeds metabolism and controls Candida/yeast.


1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 tbsp Da Vinci® Sugar Free Syrup
(I used Macadamia Nut), OR sugar free
Pancake syrup
1 tbsp butter
1 cup chocolate whey protein
2/3 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup powdered erythritol
1 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut (divided)

In food processor, process coconut oil, whipping cream, Da Vinci® Sugar Free Syrup, butter, chocolate whey protein, powdered milk, cocoa and erythritol. Stir in 3/4 cup coconut. Press into lightly greased (spray bottom of pan lightly with Pam) 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Sprinkle remaining coconut over top and press coconut into mixture with back of a soup or dessert spoon. Freeze until firm and refrigerate

Helpful Hint: This is quite a fudge-like confection and I love the combo of coconut and chocolate. It was sweet enough for me, but YMMV. You could add the contents of a couple of Splenda packets, if desired – taste and see. It’s hard to believe that this confection is actually good for you. Don’t have an ounce of guilt over this one!

This confection could be cut into 8 bars – as in protein bars - and carried in a plastic baggie in your purse. It will be a little softer, but you could always mitigate that by adding a couple tablespoons more of the whey protein or leave out a tablespoon of the sugar free syrup.

Nutritional Analysis: 32 squares (8 x 4)
1 square: 74.4 calories; 3.4 g protein; 6.1 g fat; 1.5 g carbs
too late, I looked at this. You had me @ chocolate coconut...

I've been making a batch of this every week for in between meal snacks. I have been eating more Atkin's 72 and have really cut out the sweetners so if you make this you might prefer it with a bit of sweetener added to it. I've just been eyeballing the ingredients, the recipe is very forgiving. The whey powder I use has a very small scoop, it's 8 grams protein for each scoop so please adjust accordingly if using another brand.

1/3-1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup almond butter
1/4 cup flax seeds (ground or meal, whatever you prefer)
1/2-3/4 cup coconut flakes (all work well, big or small)
3 scoops "The True Whey" whey powder

Mix the coconut oil, almond butter, and whey together (I use a kitchenaid mixer), add dry ingredients and beat until well mixed. Spread batter into a pyrex dish and refrigerate. Cut into squares and eat (keep refrigerated).

We have an EarthFare. They sell it by the jar, or sometimes you can find it freshly ground but it's not as popular as almond and peanut, so I wouldn't count on it. tween $7-$10 i /think. I took forever usuing it up cause it's so rich and satisfying.

This brand is Maranatha.

ETA: Hey, the words in your post had a link so it seems that Netrition may have it as well. . . Uh, Nope, the link goes to a dead page. Unavaiable for sale. I wish they'd delete pages for things we can't buy.it's frustrating. Anyway, you could check out your local healthy food store or ask your supermarket to special order it if htey have a health food section, maybe.

Thank you for pointing out that the link to a Netrition page contained a product no longer available for sale. We updated our link so that it now points to a Macadamia Nut Butter that IS for sale.

AWESOME!!!
You Rock!

ETA: Yay!!That's the One!!! It's SO GOOD! No added sugar, salt or oil. But it will separate like mad cause it's naturally very oily. So stir it and keep it in the fridge to keep it from separting, or just keep it in the cabinet and use it frequently. Otherwise it settles and compacts at the bottom. But I'll bet you want to eat it straight from the jar on a regular basis!

Yay! Up to this point all of the macadamia nut butters I have found have cashew butter too (probably for the reasons of consistency) but that has too many carbs...(adding this to the potential netrition order) when I have enough items to justify the shipping cost, I am gonna put in an order...

This thread is making my mouth water!

Have just taken delivery of my Nutiva EVCO and melted some into the vegetable curry sauce I made for dinner tonight. Has a slight coconut undertone, but not overpowering. Think it's going to be pretty good!

Can't wait to try some of these recipes!

Just made some coconut bark, and I have to say a big thank you to everyone, as I think I may become addicted!

4 tablespoons of EVCO
4 squares of Lindt 90% cocoa solid chocolate (i.e. 40g)
1 oz chopped almonds
4 tablespoons of Proti Meal Natural Oatmeal cereal (it's a protein based powder with the occasional oat in it - I couldn't find my flax!)
2 inches root ginger, grated

Break the chocolate into pieces and melt, along with the coconut oil, in a bowl on top of a pan of simmering water. Stir in the chopped almonds, grated ginger and oatmeal. Pour a thin layer in a dish & freeze.

When I make this again, I'll probably double the almonds, increase the ginger a bit, and maybe add a splash of brandy.

85% fat
8% protein
5% net carb
3% fibre

I could easily have a couple of squares of this with coffee for breakfast on the days I can't face eggs or 'proper food'.

Edited to add, it would taste better with sweetener in it, but since I'm trying to avoid sweet food, I didn't bother.

Edited to add (yes again ), I bet it would be lovely if strawberries were dipped in it when melted, and then allowed to set in the fridge!

With apologies for being obssessed !

Great thread (it's been around awhile!). Subscribing.

Does anyone have any recipes that use coconut flour? I have a bag in my pantry for some reason.

Healthnut, I've made all of these recipes using coconut flour and they are all awesome! I love coconut though, DH likes the sweet recipes not so much the savory ones (but he's kind of on the fence with coconut anyway).

Coconut Oil Pudding

[QUOTE=PhillyTwinsMom;5096856]I will have to give it a try again with the flax. I just hate wasting that much COil.

Maybe next time I will also bring the amount of oil down a little so I don't have that much wasted in the bowl.

******
By the way I did try the single serve of "ch cake" with the jello.

1T CO
~2oz cream cheese.
~1/2 tsp strawberry kiwi jello.

Melt co and cc in MW. Add jello while warm. Mix really well and put in the frig. It was sooo good warm that I started to just eat it that way. But I wanted to see what would happen in the frig. Because both the CO and jello make things solidify it was stiffer than the last time, but still very good. Next time I will add the sour cream again and maybe lower the jello just a little bit. Hoping for a more creamy texture. Aside from that the jello worked out perfect. Just the right amount of sweetness. Very nice.

I wonder what would happen using plain yogurt, and eating straight without refrigeration. Will have to give it a try.

Thanks for all the help.
Philly~[/QUOT


Hi! I'm new here, but I am not new to using coconut oil. I am always looking for new ways to get my daily CO in. I tried Philly's "recipe" but tweaked it a bit. I used:

1 T CO
3 T plain low-fat yogurt
1 T FF/SF pudding mix (banana cream flavor)
about 1/2 packet of stevia to taste

I melted the CO, then whisked in yogurt, pudding and stevia. Cover and chill in freezer until desired consistency.

Tasted like coconutty-bananay pudding. The coconut oil got a little gritty and it had a funny texture, but tasted pretty good.

Snackeroons

1 c. grated chedder cheese
3/4 c. CARBQUIK
( here it calls for 3/4 c. rice crispies but I just skip them)
1/2 c. crushed walnuts
1/2 tsp. garlic salt (I use garlic POWDER instead of salt)
1/2 c. butter (soft) (I use expeller pressed Coconut oil instead)
6 slices crisp crushed bacon (I use 9 pieces instead of 6)
2 tblsp bacon drippings or oil (again, the Coconut oil)
4 to 5 tsp. ice water

Combine all of the ingredients, form into balls and bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 375 (or until golden brown). A silicon baking mat is really great for these. If they spread too much you might chill the uncooked balls before baking. Next time I make these I'm going to try Pepper Jack cheese.

I just bought some Butter Buds and I think I may add some to the water in the recipe to replace the butter flavor. Not that it really needs it.
Question about the 'starch' ingredient. You used carbquick. Did you use CQ instead of the Rice Krispies, or were teh Rice Krispies an added ingredient in to be added in addition to the flour that you just left out? ask because I have some Keto crisps but not carbquick, and I could use them maybe. I also have some atkins bake mix and wonder if that would work.

Also, the other day I remembered that my mom used to whip up her own soft-spread butter, so I tried it with coconut oil and it turned out great! Tastes just like butter! My son and husband don't even realizing they're getting CO when they use it. Didn't have an exact recipe but here's what I did:

In a small mixing bowl (I used my Magic Bullet) mix the following:

1 stick of butter, softened
1-2 tablespoons liquid oil of your choice (or you can use all CO, I was chicken to the first try!)
2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil
salt to taste
ice water

1. Whip the butter up till fluffy.
2. Gradually whip in the oil.
3. Add ice water a teaspoon at a time and whip after each addition.
4. Salt to taste
5. Add a drop of yellow food color, if desired.
6. Keep whipping till the mixture is the consistency you want and refrigerate
in a small, saved soft-serve tub.

When I took it out of the fridge the first time it was a little firm so I nuked it and whipped in a little more oil to soften. Next time I will double this and use a bigger tub!
I made that recently. I whipped up the soft butter with some refined coconut oil and froze it into blocks and wrapped it with wax paper. Looks just like sticks of butter and tastes no different though it melts faster than butter at the same temperature (obviously). But right now i'm not having any starches , not even low carb ones, so I have no delicious low carb bread to spread it over. Maybe I'll make some oopsies. Now that I've done that successfully, next time I WILL make it flavored if I can , add a bit of sugar and cinnamon maybe. or some parsley and basil, . . . or GARLIC! yum!!

ETA: Hey, I wanna try the mayo and salad dressings,but I still have a lot of commercial dressings. Do you think I could just add some coconut oil to the ready made stuff to stretch it out a bit. i have Italian dressing, just add some coconut oil to that bottle and use it up?

I have a question--I just picked up a container of Spring Valley brand organic extra virgin coconut oil from Walmart and it says to refrigerate after opening but I have read many here who leave it sitting out on the counter all the time--so I am wondering if it is safe to do so--it sure would be alot easier than having to chunk a piece off all the time when you needed to--I dont refrigerate any other oils--so its weird to think this one has to be refrigerated--especially if a person would buy that big gallon size! thanks for any input
and for all the recipes here!!

I think some labels put that as a standard precaution. many seed oils will go rancid very quickly at summer temperatures ( a matter of mere months) and they are advised to be kept cool or refrigerated.

Coconut oil being mostly saturated will survived much longer than most any other vegetable oil. On the shelf even refined Coconut oil can last from 6 months to 2 years, virgin even longer.

Keep it where it's convenient for you. I don't refrigerate my gallon bucket of oil!
