The healthiest coconut oil recipes on the internet. Tons of keto and paleo coconut oil recipes for you to get even more of this healthy fat!

After many years of getting a bad rap, coconut oil is the new olive oil. It’s being promoted all over creation for its health benefits and every TV and Internet doctor on the planet seems to be jumping on the coconut oil bandwagon.

I myself am not at all qualified to speak to the health benefits of this oil over others, so you won’t hear any of that from me. I do believe it to be very healthy, but I believe a lot of oils and fats are healthy and I like to vary the sources of fat in my recipes. It’s a great way to change up the flavours and textures of your foods while still enjoying a healthy fat intake.

But to say I like extra virgin coconut oil would be a huge understatement. I LOVE extra virgin coconut oil and I always have a big jar on the go in my kitchen. I love the flavour and I love the tenderness it lends to baked goods. I can honestly eat it right out of the jar. Yes, yes I can.

And getting a good quality virgin coconut oil is key to accessing any of those health benefits that everyone’s talking about. Refined coconut oil is just not the same thing.

If you want to try to incorporate more coconut oil into your cooking, you are in luck!

I’ve rounded up 31 healthy and amazing recipes for you to try. Some savory, some sweet. All of them are low carb or paleo (and most can be modified to be one or the other) and all of them feature healthy coconut oil. So grab your jar and get cooking!

    Hi Carolyn, what a great idea for a round up! I’m new to your blog and as a Chef I love trying new things, my mom’s been into the coconut oil for about 2 years now and I actually love it, but I was looking for more recipes to make for her. Thanks for posting all these lovely ideas! And Hi from a fellow food lover!

    What a great post! I’ve been hearing so much about coconut oil but you have finally convinced me that I need to stop thinking about trying it and actually do it. Love all the recipes, too, can’t wait to make something!

    Thank you so much for this!! I am trying to convert Patrick. He HATES coconut and think that coconut oil will only taste like coconut, but in my experience I find that cooking with coconut oil does not lend a coconut-y flavor. I must try out some of these recipe on him and maybe just ‘forget’ to tell him it’s made with coconut oil 😉


    • Carolyn says

      Good luck! I don’t tell my kids when I cook or bake with coconut oil and now they’ve gotten used to it.
