Cooking with Minola Coconut Oil

From my previous post, I’ve talked about the many benefits of coconut oil. To recap, Minola Coconut Oil is rich in lauric oil that helps fight viruses and bacteria. Cooking with Minola Cooking Oil will also help boost your family’s immunity because it is “MINOLAURIC” or full of lauric oil.

More than ever today, we need to make sure that our family, especially our kids, are healthy. And with Minola, you can enjoy the benefits of coconut oil without spending a lot. You can serve healthy dishes to your family and ensure their health at the same time.

Aside from using Minola Coconut Oil in our everyday dishes, I also use it during our quick and easy baking sessions with the kids. Here’s one of our favorites - Banana Bread. And this time, it was hubby who gave it a try!

      - Oven Toaster Banana Cake Mix
      - 3 tablespoons coconut oil
      - ¼ cup water
      - 2 ripe bananas (mashed)
      - 1 egg 


- Line the sides and bottom of an 8x13” loaf pan with wax paper
- Combine the mashed bananas, cake mix, oil, water, and egg in a bowl

- Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth, about 50 strokes.

- Pour mixture into prepared pan and spread evenly
- Cover loosely with aluminium foil and lightly seal at the edges.
- Bake in the oven toaster for 10 minutes. Turn the pan sideways and bake for 10 minutes more.

And there you have it, yummy banana bread in less than 30 minutes!

Here are also some simple recipes using coconut oil which I found online that anyone (including a kitchen novice like me) could do:

1½ c. unsalted roasted peanuts
1 tbsp. coconut oil

For smooth peanut butter:
1.     Mix the peanuts with the coconut oil, and pour the mixture into the food processor.
2.     Process the mixture until it’s very smooth.
3.     Store your smooth peanut butter in a sealed container in the fridge. It will be good for 2 weeks.

For chunky peanut butter:
1.     Take about ¼ cup out of your 1½ cups of peanuts and set them aside.
2.     Mix the rest of the peanuts with the oil, and pour the mixture into the food processor.
3.     Process the mixture until it’s very smooth, then stir in the peanuts that you had set aside.
4.     Process a few seconds more to create the chunks in your chunky peanut butter.
5.     Store your chunky peanut butter in a sealed container in the fridge. It will be good for 2 weeks.

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup raw honey

1/8 tsp turmeric
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup coconut oil

What’s great about these recipes is that they’re quick and easy to do, plus I’m sure the kids will enjoy it. It’s perfect for their baon in school or a snack at home. Happy and healthy cooking everyone! J
