Today’s post is brought to you by a fellow Yeast-Free with Me Team member:
 ,  
Can you believe it? We have already arrived on day 10 of the Yeast-Free with Me challenge! In honor of the challenge and all of the avid users of the in our office, I wanted to share my review of the product and offer YOU a chance to win your own jar of coconut oil.

 
First, let’s start with my review of the Coconut Oil. Since our yeast-free challenge is in full swing, I decided to make yeast-free peanut butter cookies using the Tropical Traditions Organic Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil.

Ingredients:
 
1 cup natural nutty peanut butter
1 cup Tropical Traditions Organic Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil
1 cup
2 eggs
2 cups oat flour
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
 
 ,  
Directions:
 
1.      Preheat oven to 375°F.
 
2.      In large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and Sweet-N-Natural®.
 ,  
3.      Next, use a separate bowl to combine cream oil, vanilla, peanut butter and eggs.
 ,  
While I was measuring out the Coconut Oil, I got a little on my hands so I decided to add a bit more since my hands have been so dry lately and boy did my hands feel moisturized! What a great deal to get a moisturizer and a healthy oil for baking all in one! Anyway, back to the recipe.
 ,  
4.      Gradually add flour mixture.
 ,  
5.      Form into balls by teaspoonfuls. Place on cookie sheet.
 ,  
The consistency of the batter was very creamy so I made sure to be extra gentle while forming the balls.
 
 
6.      Press balls with fork. Bake for approximately 12 minutes.
 
I must admit – and I’m almost positive our registered dietician Shelley Johnson would not approve of this – but I definitely licked the batter off of the beaters. When I bit into the batter, all I could taste was the moistest flavor of peanut butter I have ever tasted. I can definitely attribute the moistness to the Coconut Oil; it gave the batter such a creamy and delicious texture. YUM!
 ,  
My review of the Coconut Oil in three words: moist, delicious and healthy!
