I wanted to share how to incorporate coconut oil into my bakes. If you have read the health benefits of coconut oil and how it can be use for a great variety of purposes, you will definitely buy a bottle. I have a few bottles in stock for a variety of reasons. From using it on my hair to alleviate the dryness and damages, to replacing my usual moisturizer for body and face, to using it to dress my sprouts and finally to bake. As a matter of fact, some research papers which I read did say that replacing some of the daily fats with coconut oil does aid in losing weight too.

I hope the words “LOSING WEIGHT” will obviously caught your eyes.😉

This bake project took me 2 weekdays to finish since I got to work as always. The stress is also getting onto me . I cannot understand why there is hardly any rebound in EURUSD AT ALL!!!! Urrggghhh….. Anyway, lets get to it. I made the muffins on Day 1 and the Biscuits and Cream Cheese Frosting the next day.

The Lemon Coconut Muffins!

Ingredients :

1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Organic Coconut Flour
1 Cup Yoghurt Plain
2 Eggs
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter
1/4 Cup Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
Zest of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp Pure Lemon Extract
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt

Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt together and set aside.  After which, cream the butter, coconut oil and sugar until light and fluffy before adding in the eggs, lemon extract, zest and yoghurt into the mixture. Next incorporate the sifted ingredients until just combined. Basically, you can bake it in muffin cups. I baked half of it in muffin cups and half of it in a round bottom baking pans in order to create this piece of work I have in mind.

Baked them in a preheated oven of 190 degree for 20 to 25 minutes.

Lemony Coconut Biscuits

Ingredients :

1/2 Cup Dessicated Coconuts
1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Organic Coconut Flour
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
1/4 Tsp Salt
4 Tbsp Coconut Oil
8 Tbsp Water
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 Lemon zest

Directions:

Mix all ingredients in a mixer until it forms a stiff dough. Flatten it by rolling it using a pin. Wrap it up in a clingwrap and refrigerate till firm. It will take about 45 minutes.

Then use a round cookie cutter and cut the dough out. With the remaining of the patch of dough, I shape it into the ears of the bunnies.Bake it in a preheated oven of 190 degree for 11 minutes or until golden brown.This will give a chewy kind of biscuits. I baked it longer to crisp it up further. After 11 minutes when the side started to brown, I tent it to prevent it from getting charred!

This is how the biscuits look like after baking.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Ingredients :

8 oz Cream Cheese
1/4+1/8 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
4 Tsp Coconut Powder

Directions :

Beat all ingrdients together and chill. This amount of cream cheese frosting is probably only able to frost 2 bunnies in this project. If you like to frost more bunnies, you can always double or tripled the quantities.
