Me and Laura have been dying to try a recipe using coconut oil, so when i found some in our local health shop i had to snap it up. First of all, it smells divine. The flavour is a bit odd on it's own but if you like it, it would be good on toast. It really stands out when you put it in a recipe, it lifts the whole thing. Laura's an avid follower of Averie Cooks, a baking blog that we take a lot of inspiration from. Even if you don't make her recipes, just take a look at all the gorgeous food pictures, Yum! The recipe this week is from her blog, Coconut Oil White Chocolate Cookies. Take a look.
I changed the recipe a little, the all-purpose flour was whole meal and i used only white sugar (thats all i had) so they look a little different. But the taste is by no means dampened, or the smell! Because i made them with white sugar, they get a bit rich so i wouldn't recommend doing that. Follow Averie Cooks recipe, not mine! They smell amazing though, if you could bottle it i would buy it.
Even though i changed the recipe a little, they still turned out great and ill be making them again in no time. They're super simple to make and the hardest bit is not eating the dough!
