Breakfast Coconut Oil Recipes
Grain Free Waffles via Fit Foodie Finds. Lee says: “Looking for super simple gluten free waffles that taste like the real deal? You are going to swoon over these almond flour waffles made with a coconut flour + almond flour base. We topped ours with a homemade strawberry chia compote!” Yum!
Low Carb Chocolate Coconut Smoothie via Keto Diet App. If you’re cutting back on carbs, this smoothie is for you! I would personally sub regular milk/cream, and maybe throw in a quarter of a banana for sweetness.
Dinner Coconut Oil Recipes
Keto Low Carb Beef and Broccoli via Noshtastic. Throw the beef in a marinade an hour before you plan on eating. Then you’ve got a healthy, low-carb supper! If you’re not low-carb you can always serve with a bowl of rice.
Jamaican Veggie Patties via 101 Cookbooks. The filling has a combination of ingredients that’s a bit different from things I’ve tried. So it’s quite intriguing to me! I don’t know if it’s authentic, but you could throw in some ground beef or chicken to make them heartier.
Coconut Oil Fried Peanut Chicken via The Endless Meal. This chicken gets coated in peanuts and panko breadcrumbs. Then it’s fried in coconut oil, and you can dip it in a Thai honey butter. Sounds amazing.
Side Dish Coconut Oil Recipes
Coconut Oil Roasted Potatoes via yours truly – guest post on The Pioneer Woman’s blog. This is my all-time favorite way to serve potatoes. The bottoms are all crispy and delicious. These taste like French fries!
Oven Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar and Coconut Oil via Maria Ushakova. I love roasted asparagus, and I think the addition of balsamic vinegar sounds lovely.
Quick note: I would probably cut back on the sugar in some of these recipes and substitute sucanat, maple syrup, honey, or coconut sugar. But that’s just my personal preference.
Homemade Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups via Yours Truly. These are WAY better than store-bought PB cups, IMO.
via Life Made Simple. Natalie says these are thick and chewy, so I’d probably want to polish off two at once. 😀
Coconut Oil Peanut Butter Cookies via Homemade Food Junkie. This dough doesn’t require chilling, so it’s quick and easy to make! It also contains nutmeg, which I find so interesting! I’ve never seen that in a peanut butter cookie recipe before.
Gluten Free Peach Crisp with Salted Coconut Milk Caramel via Ambitious Kitchen. I like that there’s the option to use coconut sugar instead of brown sugar.
Snack Coconut Oil Recipes
Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips via Yours Truly. It’s actually really easy to make your own tortilla chips at home!
Coconut Oil Chex Mix via Real Food with Jessica. Ummm…so…this is a thing. I like that these are seasoned with coconut aminos and garlic and onion powder instead of mystery-ingredient ranch dressing mix.
So there you have it: over 60 coconut oil recipes! I hope this roundup was useful for you, and you found a few recipes to add to your to-make list!
