Whole Wheat Coconut Oil Oatmeal Cookies

Whole Wheat Coconut Oil Oatmeal Cookies

Whole Wheat Coconut Oil Oatmeal Cookies add some texture variety and interest with oatmeal fibre

What can you expect to be different with these biscuits?

When I think of bought chocolate chip biscuits, I think of Cookie Bear, and those rather hard chocolate chip biscuits. (I was given a Cookie Bear when I was 5 years old).

A key difference with these biscuits, the oatmeal adds a little chew to their inner core. Then the Coconut Oil adds some crisp to the outside of them.

So these cookies provide you with a balance of:

  • chewy centre
  • crispy outer

Raw Eatwell Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli BarsLooking for less refined sugar? Raw Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars have dry fruit for sweetening. As a result they use less refined sugar. These no bake bars use raw White Gold Coconut Oil. (Photo Eatwell NZ blog)

Firstly, before you begin reading any further, we’d love you to take our Coconut Oil Muesli Bar poll, and you’ll be able to view the latest results from the poll.

[yop_poll id=”4″]

Raw Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars

Versatile snacks: Coconut Oil Muesli Bars

Nuts, or no nuts, you decide, will you have nuts or not? This particular version of the Eatwell NZ recipe has swapped sesame seeds for sunflower, and almonds for mixed nuts. But the results were voted to be scrumptious by all taste testers.

[gmc_recipe 12703]

Raw Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars

Why Eatwell NZ published this recipe

Nicola, at Eatwell NZ says this about Muesli bars in the supermarket, back in September, 2011, “It’s hard to find the perfect muesli bar at the supermarket. Sugar is often the second ingredient on the list, and they often taste a little average to tell the truth.”

And the search continues… just this week in August 2016, some 5 years after the above muesli bar recipe was posted, we received a request from a loyal New Zealand Coconut Oil Shop customer. It reads like this.

“Would appreciate more sugarless (using dates etc for sweetening) or raw recipes that use coconut oil.”

So that is why this Coconut Resort blog posted our version of this recipe. We love customer interaction, and we love to provide the Smiliest Service!

We also received this fine piece of advice. “Where it says ‘Heat the honey…’ you could add: GENTLY heat the honey. – because
(1) Honey loses its natural enzymes when overheated.
(2) It takes on bitter taste when over heated
(3) It becomes toxic when over heated.
All this can be avoided, by not heating honey above the temp of 104Deg C. The ancient system of Ayurveda considers uncooked honey to be nectar and cooked honey as poison. (they advise never to heat it above 104Deg C)”

Have you seen the reader comment below?

We heard that this goes well with dates and Ancient Wisdom Coconut Oil as well as White Gold brand.

Our reader Marie write in, “Thanks for the Eatwell Coconut Oil Muesli Bars recipe! I made them (using Ancient Wisdom and 6 dates) and they are beaut.”

Coconut Oil Persimmon Rooibos Tea Cake

Coconut Oil Persimmon Rooibos Tea Cake

A sweet, refined sugar free tea cake for Autumn.
Nicola Galloway of Home Grown Kitchen blog says, “Rooibos Tea, or Red Bush Tea pairs perfectly with the intense sweetness of persimmons.

The Smith Family of this Coconut Resort blog have a long standing love of Rooibos Tea, a product we learnt about in Japan, of all places. The Red Bush is only grown in one part of South Africa.

I also first learnt about Persimmon as a fruit from Japan. Apparently the most widely cultivated Persimmon is the Japanese “Kaki” variety.

So to see the Coconut Oil Persimmon Rooibos Tea Cake recipe with the Japanese fruit persimmon and the tea we learnt about from Japan is interesting to me.

Persimmon Cake with Coconut Oil
Persimmon and Rooibos Tea could combine to make a refined sugar free option for next year’s Mother’s Day afternoon tea.

The most popular tea cake in New Zealand is possibly the Blueberry Tea Cake. The recipe above could be done with a number of tea and firm fruit combinations.

[gmc_recipe 12366]

http://www.homegrown-kitchen.co.nz/2015/05/25/persimmon-rooibos-teacake/

Don’t feel restricted in what fruit you may use. Any firm fruit, be it plum, Granny Smith Apples, etc. may work with different tea options. Even Green Tea.

Kale Coconut Oil Chips

Kale with Coconut Oil | 6 Tips for Flawless Kale Chips with Coconut Oil

Kale Coconut Oil Chips: What A Combination

It’s easy to rattle off a list of things that can done with Coconut Oil. But some of those things may require a little bit of thinking and experience. Kale Coconut Oil Chips is one of them.

The skill in successfully making this vegetable into a potatoe chip alternative is finding the balance between burnt edges and soggy Kale leaves.

Angela Liddon Oh She Glows

Angela Liddon – Scientist turned Recipe Book Author

Thankfully Angela Liddon, a scientist who turned to experimenting with plant based recipes has done some research into this matter for us. If you follow the tips found on her blog posts your leaves will be baked. But they won’t be burned.

The first time Angela day after created these vegetable chips she thought, “Should they taste burnt like this??”

6 tips for  better Kale Chips

Since that first experiment she has come up with 6 tips for Flawless Kale Chips.

  1. Remove the stems and tear leaves into large pieces
  2. Wash thoroughly and dry the leaves before beginning
  3. Don’t skip the oil, but don’t drench it in oil either
  4. Spread kale onto a single layer on the baking sheet
  5. It’s all about the low heat for even baking
  6. Cool for just a few minutes on the baking sheet

Kale Coconut Oil Chips Leaves

It’s important for the leaves to dry after being washed. No-one wants to eat grit with their chips. Dry leaves at the start create a better result in the end.

Below you’ll see a before and after photo of the leaves.

Kale Coconut Chips Before and After

What motivated me to post about this topic?

This Facebook post has been very popular with our readers!

One of our customers offered this excellent advice.

“White Gold … – great on kale to make baked veggie chips!”

Quite possibly it is easy to grow. Even in winter.

Butter Milk Banana Bread with Coconut Oil

Butter Milk Banana BreadButter Milk Banana Bread with Coconut Oil

Are you looking for a way to use Butter Milk and Bananas? Butter Milk Banana Bread may be just the trick you need. If you haven’t thought of it before you’d probably agree it could be fun. Let’s add some Coconut Oil and see what happens then.

Switching fats to Coconut Oil does not compromise the taste or texture.
A remember a person who worked in the food industry telling an audience of people the reason why restaurant food tastes so amazing is because they use real butter.

Si, from A Bountiful Kitchen blog says that sometimes when you switch fat in a recipe it can mean you have less flavour and the texture is not as great. But as far as this recipe is concerned it she feels that is not the case. Certainly at home we always use Solid Coconut Oil in our home made bread, and it doesn’t make it taste too Coconut in flavour.

In this recipe, we’d say the banana flavour would certainly mask many other flavours anyway.

Raw Chocolate Nectarine Tart (with Desiccated Coconut + Oil) Julia and Libby Wholefoods

Raw Chocolate Nectarine TartRaw Chocolate Nectarine Tart – Julia and Libby Wholefoods

Raw Chocolate Nectarine Tart

Do you love nectarines and chocolate? Raw nectarines are juicy and emphasise the delicious flavour of the fruit. That’s why you really need to gather more nectarines, and more chocolate, because you’re going to be tempted to dip the pieces of fruit into the chocolate, while you’re working. Okay? That’s also why Julia and Libby love this tart recipe! (Well that’s what I say, anyway).

Coconut Oil Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake

Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake by Julia and Libby | CoconutOilShop.co.nz Coconut Resort Updates

Coconut Oil Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake by Julia and Libby

What does the flavour of this cheesecake remind Julia and Libby of?
The title Coconut Oil Chocolate Cheesecake makes you think it tastes like a Coconut. Right?

But Julia Matthews points out that, “The flavour of this cheesecake reminds us of Nutella® and that is thanks to the hazelnuts and cacao. This vegan cheesecake is extremely filling and full of good fats from the coconut oil, walnuts and cashews so you only need a tiny slice at a time to feel nourished.”

As a raw vegan recipe, this Chocolate Hazelnut Cheesecake will certainly raise some eyebrows at your next party!

Muesli Bars with Coconut Oil by Julia and Libby

Muesli Bars with Coconut Oil by Julia and Libby

Muesli Bars (with Coconut Oil) by Julia and Libby

Why did Julia and Libby add Coconut Oil to their NZ Manuka Honey with LSA Muesli Bars recipe?

We added coconut oil to the bars as this good fat will keep you feeling full for longer and helps to solidify the bars.”

The Matthews sisters, Julia and Libby have been hard at work both professionally and in exercise training. This recipe will certainly come in handy for a busy lifestyle. In the introduction to this post on their Facebook page they also have this to say.

“We have created some muesli bars that can be eaten for breakfast or as a snack and are very simple to make. The bars are made using the new Sanitarium Cereals ‪#‎OptionsMuesli‬ , along with LSA or flaxseed meal and eggs as the base and are sweetened with cinnamon and manuka honey.”

[gmc_recipe 11552]

Some people won’t use this recipe because it involves using eggs. Chia seeds are the alternative to eggs in baking. But that consideration is beyond the scope of this recipe.

I trust that this has been a helpful, and I look forward to providing more recipes and updating existing ones as time goes by. On the day this recipe was posted a variation of the Coconut Berry Smoothie recipe was added, with an extra video. So feel free to take a look at that as well. www.coconutoilshop.co.nz/2014/06/coconut-berry-smoothie/
