  1. Oh, I’m going to be making these. I think you’ve sold me on using coconut oil with these cookie bars along with all the other delicious recipes of yours that uses it. Mine’s just sitting on the shelf……. doing nothing. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait.

  2. I haven’t done much baking with coconut oil, but this makes me think I definitely should. I’d have a hard time waiting for these to cool before sneaking one!

  3. Its good to see that coconut oil is being used for this recipe. People in Kerala (South India) use coconut oil in most of their recipes. Kerala Banana chips is the specialty of Kerala, a beautiful state in the southern part of India . Its distinct flavor and taste is primarily because of coconut oil being used in it.

    And also I read somewhere that coconut oil is good for the heart as well. BTW great recipe Marsha!!!
