3. Baking goodies

Coconut oil is the perfect fat to bake with and can be a great replacement for all your baking fats. It's so easy too; if a recipe calls for 100g butter, use 75g coconut oil instead.

5. Roasting veggies

Coconut oil, thanks to its high smoke point, makes fab roasted veggies. Just prep your vegetables in the usual way before tossing in coconut oil and your chosen seasonings. Then, roast at 200C/400F/Gas 6 for 20-40 minutes depending on the veg.
