8 Mouth-Watering Ways to Cook With Coconut Oil

nutellaIs it me, or does it seem like everyone is talking about coconut oil? I knew the stuff had reached the tipping point when my mom mentioned yesterday that she'd started cooking with it -- and is loving it. So if you're not familiar with the stuff, allow me to introduce you. Coconut oil is loaded with nutritional benefits: It contains medium-chain fatty acids, which you'll burn quickly, it can help fight off diseases and fungus, it can help stabilize blood sugar and blood pressure and hormones, and it contains the "good" kind of cholesterol. It has a high smoke point, which makes it very versatile. And best of all, it has a great flavor. For maximum benefits, it's recommended that you choose raw, cold-pressed oil. Here are eight things you can cook with coconut oil.

It's also amazing on skin, in hair, for oral care, and frying up pancakes. I use it on my babies, too!

I made oven fries with coconut oil in place of olive oil. My husband says they were the best fries he's ever had. :)
