I'm adding my favorite new coconut oil recipe. I found this a few years ago and tweaked it to make it sugar free. If you don't want to use Stevia just use whatever is equal to 3/4 cup sweetener total for the recipe. The last time I made it I added another 1/4 cup shredded coconut and put some almonds on top. Even my husband, who is not much of a chocolate eater, loved it.

Almond joys

1 cup coconut oil
1 cup organic cocoa powder
1 tablespoon Sweet Leaf Stevia Powder
1/4 cup xylitol
1/4 cup almond butter
1/2 cup coconut flakes
1/2 ts vanilla extract
dash of sea salt

Gently melt oil. Mix with the rest of ingredients (I use a stand mixer) until well combined.
Cover bottom of square baking pan with plastic wrap and pour “fudge” in. Refrigerate or freeze until firm. Cut into squares (or if you freeze like I do, break into pieces. I keep it in the freezer).

Per 12 servings - each 7 grams carb, 4 grams fiber, 3 grams net carb

Lovin' My Coconut Oil

Just wanted to say Thank You to everybody that has contributed information, advice and recipes for using CO here.

I just started using CO in the last coupke of weeks and it really does suppress my appetite, and I have noticed the inches melting off.

I have only posted on this board a couple of times so far and have been way more of a lurker by far, so decided to step out and speak up.

This board has so much great info and input and I know it has inspired me greatly to move toward my goal, so just wanted to say again Thank You.

Please keep this thread going. It is so helpful to those of us out there finding our way back.

Although I have lost a great deal of weight in the past with LC, (oops and eventually regained it) this is the first time that I have discovered CO, and I can tell that it will truly make all the difference in losing and maintaining the weight loss that I am now achieving.

THANK YOU!

So, do you just drizzle the coconut oil in as you whip the cream cheese? What is the texture like? The same?

Coconut Cake

You could even omit the butter in this cake and add in 1/2 c. more coconut oil to this, I'm sure (I just like the taste of butter in cakes). The recipe was posted in this thread: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...onut-cake.html

And it freezes well, too, Sandi. I thawed a piece the other night and it didn't lose anything in the freezing! Fared better than most of my LC cakes I've tried to freeze. Wouldn't freeze for over a month, however. No baked goods really like to be frozen for very long. They dry out in the freezer if left too long.

Barb,

Maybe the "crack" is the coconut bark recipe.

cocoa "crack" is the cocoa bark recipe. Basically you spread it very thin, chill it and then crack off a piece to munch on.

I cannot find cocoa butter in any of the stores. Is that something one MUST buy from the internet??? I just make more cocoa bark with unsweetened chocolate and coconut oil. I tried to powder my sweetener blend but it stayed gritty, but the end product was pretty. I dipped cream cheese clouds in them using tooth picks,now they are bon-bons.

metqa--I found cocoa butter here. I am sure you can find it too! I am pretty sure I got it from Whole Foods, but could have been Vitamin Shoppe. It has been a while. But the brand is Nativas Naturals and it is actually called "cacao power Mayan superfood".
