Got Coconut Oil?

016 copy

You are most likely aware that coconut oil is good for you and that it has many health benefits. A spoonful of coconut oil a day can stave off infections, lower risk of heart disease, work wonders for hair, skin, and nails, improve digestion, and boost brain function. Those are just a few of the many benefits of coconut oil!

I am not a fan of the taste of coconut oil. I substitute vegetable oils and sometimes butter in cooking and baking with coconut oil, but I am not keen to spread it on toast or crackers, or melt it in a hot drink! I do want to reap the benefits of coconut oil so I came up with a way to get those benefits and mask the taste!

What I do:

Combine 1 C of coconut oil, 1/4 C natural peanut butter, and 50g of dark chocolate in a small saucepan. Slowly heat on low until ingredients are all melted. Pour into molds, refridegerate, and voila! Pop one in daily for a chocolate fix and some coconut oil goodness!
