Who else loves using coconut oil in baking? It has definitely become one of my favourite ingredients for cookies, bars, and brownies. It gives them a delicious taste and sweetness, and makes them extra soft, chewy, and thick!

Dry and crumbly, taste great, look chewy and soft. I don't mind crunchy, but crumbly is a bit disappointing. They will still surely disappear.

I may have done something wrong but measured correctly, exactly as the directions stated and these were terribly dry...were they supposed to have double the oil listed?

I'm so sorry they came out too dry. If measured correctly, the other culprits would be overbaking, or the oven temperature was too high. I always recommend using an oven thermometer to make sure it's the right temperature for the recipe.

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!!!
