Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Review and Giveaway! (Ends 11//18/11)

I love to bake, and my husband and son love to eat treats! I like to find new recipes and different items to use in my baking. My guys love chocolate and they love cookies.
 I was given the opportunity to try Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil recently. I really like coconut, and couldn't wait to use it! Because it's warm here in my area of FL right now, my jar was more of a semi-liquid when I was using it. I looked through the many recipes for Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, and saw quite a few that caught my eye! I almost picked a smoothie, but realized that I didn't have the other ingredients in the pantry or fridge for it! Another day! I ended up choosing to make chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, a recipe submitted by Fran from Toronto, Canada. 

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Preheat oven to 350°F degrees. Grease cookie sheet(s) with additional coconut oil. Set aside.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the wet ingredients in separate bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
Roll dough into small balls, flatten and place on prepared cookie sheets. Bake in preheated oven for 18-24 minutes. Remove from sheets to wire rack to cool.
You can also add raisins if you like.

At first, when I saw how my cookies turned out, I wasn't sure what hubby and son were going to think. I was baking them while they were at a function. When they came home that evening, they got the chance to try them, and they liked the way that they tasted! I baked them for about 20 minutes, though next time, I'm probably going to bake them for only 18 minutes.  There are many recipes on their site for the use of their coconut oil, from smoothies, to baked goods, and entrees! The oil doesn't have to be stored in the refrigerator, and it has a long shelf-life. Awesome! I liked using it, and I plan to try other recipes in the near future!
