Coconut oil is so delicious and works so well as a butter or oil substitute that I never have a problem finding ways to use it. Here is one suggestion. Take some soft coconut oil, and add a bit of coco powder and a bit of maple syrup to it, and blend. Either use it as a soft spread, or spread it on wax paper to harden in the fridge and eat as a chocolate bar. It's yummy and healthy at the same time.
