Did you know that you can substitute coconut oil one for one in baking?! First thing I thought of upon learning this was Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies!!!! And they would be “healthy”!!! Medium chain fatty acid used as energy instead of stored as fat kind of healthy I tried it out, and I am happy to report that it really does work. These cookies have NO Butter, and they taste like the girl Scout cookie Samoa. Win!

Ps I now use coconut oil in my granola instead of canola oil. Another win!

Just a disclaimer: from my experience regular coconut oil has no taste, which is good for things like stir-frys, and extra virgin coconut oil tastes like coconut which is great for baking.
