Here's my version of coconut candy.
1/4 cup Coconut Oil (I have Omega Nutrition organic expeller pressed)
1/2 of a one ounce square unsweetened chocolate
1 packet Stevia Plus
8 drops TrishZ's liquid splenda
1/4 cup toasted unsweetened coconut (put on cookie sheet at 350 for a few minutes till it gets golden)
1/4 cup sliced or chopped almonds

Melt coconut oil and chocolate. Add Stevia and liquid Splenda. Stir in coconut and almonds. I put the mixture in mini muffin liners. I got 6 from the recipe. I just made this and it's chilling right now, but the bowl scrapings were sure tasty!

I made these this afternoon..but added some flaxseed meal to the mix..
They were very good..

Susan's Coconut Oil Cookies

Totally low carb...
Ingredients: 3/4 cup unprocessed coconut oil (Spectrum)
1 cup Splenda
1 egg
1 small capful vanilla
6-8 scoops protein shake mix (I used Atkins)
cinnamon for sprinkling

How To Prepare: Preheat oven to 350. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper, if you prefer (I did) Carolyn's Note: I did mine with the parchment..
no problem as they are very fatty and don't stick to the pan..


Beat the egg. Add in the coconut oil. Mix well. Add vanilla. Slowly pour in the Splenda so that it doesn't "dust" everything. Next add the shake mix, 1 scoop at a time. (I started out with 6 but added two more.) Roll into balls the size of a marble. (The size you roll them into will determine how many you make.) Next, crisscross them with a fork. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 10 minutes. Yum Yum!

This recipe was a Bake-off winner many years ago. I used to LOVE these but had forgotten all about them until recently. I have been making a low carb version and they work great for a quick on-the-run breakfast. They are quite delicate when they first come out of the oven but a little stronger and firmer once cooled.

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.

If you don't like the taste of coconut, I would guess you could get the expeller pressed coconut oil and use in place if the virgin coconut oil. I'm still waiting for my shipment to come but have been doing lots of research on this stuff!

Well -- I made the Chocolate Bark listed on page 1 of this thread today and it was AWFUL! Very greasy and not very chocolatey at all -- like cheap, waxy Christmas candy, only worse...

BUT...I just looked at the posting again and noticed that it calls for 1/4 cup of coconut oil...not 1/2 cup like I used. :blush:

I think I'll try to remelt it tomorrow and fix the measurements and try it again...the right way.

I'll let you know!

LOL about the hubby eating it all. I just had to make a batch for my hubby because he didn't like nuts in his.
When I make the fudge I just buy pure creamed coconut by Mr Gouda's
That is what I started my coconut venture with and lost each time I used it.
It is only .69$ a box so is much cheaper then using my oil.
anyways for him I did
1 box creamed coconut
cocoa
shredded coconut
flax meal
splenda ( I don't use it anymore so wanted to use it up )
small amount of cola devinci for liquid

I worried they wouldn not be sweet enough but he loved them.
Now I gotta make two batches all the time LOL.

What is the nutritional info on the Mr. Gouda coconut cream and where do you find it??? I am curious, that is so cheap and sounds so good. Never heard of it.

Creamed Coconut

The brand that I buy is not Mr. Gouda's, but I have found it both in the refrigerated health food section and ethnic food section of my grocery store.

It is firm when cold and creamy when soft. Mine comes in a 7 ounce box and the coconut block is double wrapped in plastic inside the package. Cost is $.79.

I have been using it in savory dishes, pumpkin soup and curries. Now I will try the suggested sweet version.

Mr. Goudas seems to be a Canadian-only company... stores listed on their website are Canadian.

You can get Grace brand in the US, and a couple others which I've seen and will buy next time I go to my local supermercado. I will post pictures...probably this weekend.

If this has been asked and answered before, I'm sorry. I have a horrid headache and just need a quick answer.

Is anyone having problems with the coconut oil and choc. separating once you put it in the freezer (making bark)? Mine separates and the cocoa goes to the bottom, oil stays on top.

TIA,
Wendi

Thanks lmt 24fan. All I can think of is that I'm not melting the oil well enough. I will try it a little differently next time. I did find that if the bark isn't thin enough, it doesnt do as well.

Thanks again!

That happened to me for the first time tonight. No idea why. I melted the CO in the microwave and stirred in the cocoa and peanut butter until they melted. It all looked fine, but when I took the cubes out of the fridge there was a layer of white on top of each one. I couldn't tell you what I did differently this time...maybe the CO was a little bit warmer than in previous batches?

I tried it again this morning, and no difference. I am pouring the mix onto aluminum foil, so maybe it isn't cold enough? Thats my next experiment. I added coconut this time and some vanilla extract. Can't wait to try it.

What works for me is that I melt BOTH the oil and the peanut butter together in a
measuring cup..and then mix that all up, so it is smooth..then I add the cocoa, and
mix that up..then the sweetener..I think the peanut butter melted with the oil in the
micro helps stabilize the oil..

I have heard that you have to be careful not too heat the oil too much or the chocolate can separate.

Yes, I'm sure that is correct...that if the oil is too hot, the cocoa will not "go together"..I think it helps melting the peanut butter, as it brings down the temperature
of the oil..That's probably why I have good luck with this..

Thanks, Criosa

I posted this on another thread - can't remember which one - but I have just tried mixing 1/2 butter and 1/2 CO (expeller) - melted and mixed together and then reset - for spreading on LC bisuits, toast, veggies and whatever else I usually use butter on - This is really great! The taste of butter with only half the guilt!!
