Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil

I don’t know about you, but I hate using vegetable oil or butter knowing how bad they are for me. Especially if I’m baking a treat and my kids want some of it. Brownies make me sick knowing how much oil is in them, but they taste so good! So on my search for healthier alternatives to vegetable oil and butter I found coconut oil.

Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?
