If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you know how obsessed I am with coconut oil. I use it in just about everything I make, baked goods, smoothies, chocolate treats, roasted veggies, etc. So, in honor of my birthday today, instead of all of the gifts being for me, I wanted to share the gift of coconut oil with one lucky reader – so I am giving away 1 gallon (yes, gallon) of Tropical Traditions’ Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil! Before we get into how to enter, below are some of favorite ways to use coconut oil in the kitchen! Now if I could just get someone to create the perfect gluten-free birthday cake for me today with some of this delicious coconut oil and maybe some amazing dark chocolate, that would just make my day. If I could clone myself for just one day for that reason, I’d say that is a good enough reason.
Some of my recent favorite recipe featuring Tropical Traditions’ Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil are:
These homemade vegan versions of Almond Joys that I call Joyful Almond Coconut Chocolate Bites, are my new obsession. A perfect halloween sweet without all the processed junk found in the candy lining the aisles at stores right now.
It’s that time of year, pumpkin recipes are everywhere and I cannot get enough. These Grain-free Mini Pumpkin Pie Tarts are the perfect way to enjoy to have all of the yummy flavors of a pumpkin pie without the guilt, or the stomach aches!
I love using coconut oil in baked goods, especially cookies. These Grain-free Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt are simple to make and are soo delicious. The most wonderful combo of salty and sweet all wrapped up into one delicious cookie.
With Halloween looming around the corner, I am sure you are craving some delicious caramel apples, too, right? Here is my updated healthier version of the classic treat, Vegan Caramel Apple Dipping Sauce (Gluten-free). This dipping sauce features lots of yummy coconut ingredients, including some delicious coconut oil.
And of course there are always all of these favorite recipes, too…
What could be better than a homemade vegan and gluten-free apple crisp this time of year? Nothing! Instead of the usual butter, replace it with some delicious gold label virgin coconut oil.
As I mentioned a little while back, I recently received a sample of Gold Label Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions and I have really been enjoying making things with it. One of my favorites has been this Banana Blueberry Coconut Smoothie, that I featured recently. Sometimes I make a similar smoothie but instead of blueberries, I add in a tablespoon or two of unsweetened organic baking cocoa. Wow, what a delicious and sinful treat.
Another recipe that I made recently that really used coconut oil in a different way was this Blueberry Rosemary Multi-Grain Galette, instead of butter or a butter alternative, I use frozen coconut oil to give the crust of this galette the perfect texture, it is so easy and perfect if you are dairy-free or vegan.
And of course, the most popular recipe here on Tasty Yummies that really features coconut oil are my Dark Chocolate Coconut Treats, which can easily be made in a regular sized or mini-sized muffin tin. These may just be my favorite use for coconut oil.
A quick search for coconut oil here on Tasty Yummies will quickly show you just how often I use coconut oil and it will get you tons of great recipes to play around with and to be inspired by. In addition to being great to cook with, I also from time to time use coconut oil on my skin and hair (and the same goes for the dog), since it makes a really great natural moisturizer. The coconut oil that I received from Tropical Traditions really stands out for me among the different brands I have used, it has a great subtle flavor and it is very high quality. I find the coconut oil from Tropical Traditions tastes cleaner and more pure than any other brand I have tried. I cannot wait to continue making yummy things with it. A lot of you already know the great benefits that coconut oil provides and as much as I would love to go into that on here, the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, so here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.
Since, I am really enjoying the Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions so much, I am hosting a giveaway for a 1 gallon pail. (Yes, it a pail of coconut oil!)
Read below to see how you can enter to win.
