Coconut Oil

So, I went in search of coconut oil this weekend. My local grocery story, Kroger, did not have it and so I had to make a trip to Whole Foods. Not that big of a deal since I needed a few things there anyway. They had two brands of coconut oil. The 365 Whole Foods name brand was out because it lists peanut oil as a possible ingredient (contaminent). So we went with the Spectrum brand...which of course, was more expensive.

Coconut oil is the consistency of candle wax. Never would have guesssed that....I guess that it why is has such a high saturated fat content.

I will post my muffin recipe using coconut oil soon!!!
