Lucy Bee, founder of the UK's leading coconut oil brand, shares her favourite recipes for everything from healthy meals to indulgent coconut oil cake.
Just what makes raw coconut oil nature's perfect ingredient? It is a healthy, natural fat that works in harmony with the body. It is gluten-free and lactose-free. It contains no cholesterol and is free from additives. The current interest in healthy eating has woken up a growing number of people to the benefits of pure coconut oil. Joe Wicks uses it for cooking whilst Dale Pinnock cooks only with either olive oil or coconut oil. More and more of us are picking up a jar from our local supermarket, but once we have that jar in our kitchens, are we really making the most of coconut oil for baking and cooking?
Coconut Oil is packed with an amazing range of recipes, from family-favourites to brand new, more adventurous recipes that include smoothies, snacks, brunches, light suppers, hearty dinners and baked treats. Lucy has also made sure to include the most-searched for types of recipes online, such as coconut oil cake. This is the first illustrated cookbook published in the UK to celebrate the health and taste sensation that is organic coconut oil.
