If you haven’t yet used coconut oil in baking, you certainly should! This recipe is a great place to start, because it’s such a quick and easy recipe, you’ll have these made and cooled in under an hour. That is, of course, if you let them cool before grabbing a slice πŸ˜‰

    Oh, these look so good and chewy! I love using coconut oil too but then I’m never sure how to substitute for it in baking so I end up just using it for savory food. These look like a great place to start with coconut oil desserts!

    Blondes are one of my husbands favorite desserts so I will have to surprise him and make him a batch of these. Coconut oil is always in my pantry.

    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.

    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!

    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!!!
