I heard that it's healthier to use coconut oil in recipes like cookies, pancakes, etc. because although it's higher in fat than normal vegetable oil, it's a fat that can be easily broken down by the body. Is this true? Can someone give me some insight??
I have been doing alot of reading on the amazing benefits of coconut oil! :) There is a great book called The Miracle of Coconut Oil by Bruce Fife....super helpful! From my understanding, coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids, which are more helpful to your body. It is also one of the only sources of lauric acid which is a tremendous immunity booster :) Check out the book, it is great :) xo
