I use coconut oil in many of my raw food recipes. There's a reason for that! Coconut oil solidifies in cold temperatures - this means that it gives body and texture to recipes. Take the sesame seed bar recipe, for example. The mixture will be soft as you press it into the pan. But once it's been in the freezer for a while... voila! You can now slice it into nice, firm bars.
Here is an awesome selection of mouth-watering recipes that use coconut oil. Fill your boots!
