Halloween Treats: Giveaway #1 (Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil)

Coconut oil is the new olive oil. Next year, I think ghee might become the new coconut oil. And then we're going to come full circle, and eventually butter will be the new...butter. Just a guess. But for now, everyone is suddenly in love with this most fabulous of dairy-free alternatives. Personally, if I could eat butter, I would happily do so. But since I can't, I'm happy to have a substitute that works in so many ways. I use coconut oil to replace butter, shortening, or oil in my baking. I coat sweet potatoes and butternut squash in melted coconut oil and roast them for the most delicious fries you've ever had! And it's an easy butter alternative for toast and muffins (for those of you lucky people who eat such things).

I was more than happy to receive a free quart of Tropical Traditions virgin coconut oil this last week. I practically cried when I broke down and bought a 54 ounce jar of coconut oil earlier that week. Mostly because I go through it so quickly... So when a 32 ounce jar arrived on my doorstep, I was ecstatic. More coconut oil for my recipes?? Heck yes! This is why I was able to make my High Fiber Pear Walnut Muffins over and over again last week!

























Tropical Traditions is well known for their amazing coconut products, as well as their great sales. In fact, I'm pretty sure I first heard about them from another blogger when they were having a big sale. I'm not going to tell you all about coconut oil. You can read all about their virgin coconut oil here. I'm just here to tell you that it's the best butter substitute I've found, and I know many people actually prefer the light taste to butter. If you're already a coconut oil fan, you know how wonderful it is. And if you've been deterred by the high price, now's your chance to give it a shot. Tropical Traditions is offering one of my readers their own quart of coconut oil, delivered straight to your door! All you have to do to enter the giveaway is one of the following (you can do all three for 3 entries):

So excited to try Tropical Traditions coconut oil--I've been working my way through a bunch of coconut oils that seem to saponify fairly quickly/ easily.

(Fingers crossed--TT and I are now friends in every electronic way possible... alannalys AT gmail.com)
