Frequently Asked Questions on Coconut Oil Brownies:
Can coconut oil be used instead of butter in baking and cooking?
Coconut oil can be used 1:1 for butter. If a recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of butter, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil or butter flavored coconut oil can be used.
Is Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil vegan?
Yup, its vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo. A great substitute for many dietary restricted diets.
Can Coconut Oil Brownies be made ahead and frozen and eaten later?
Yes! These brownies freeze really well! I love using my Food Saver to freeze them. The Food Saver is just that, an awesome tool to keep food very well frozen. No freezer burn. Hint, make ahead of time and freeze for parties, bdays and Holidays. Time saver!
How do you make Homemade Brownies and send via the mail to family and friends?
- Baked goods are one of the things I send to my son in California! Brownies are a favorite.
- I do seal them using a food saver.
- Then mail the homemade brownies to him in a cardboard box.
- You can also use clear storage bags, ensure all the air out of the bags before sealing.
- Mail to your family and wait for that phone call of thanks!
Can a combo of butter and coconut oil be used to make homemade brownies?
Absolutely. I experiment all the time when making coconut oil brownies. I get different textures of brownies with different combos of the “fat Ingredient” to bake brownies. Oil lets the chocolate flavor come through stronger. Butter aerates and caused the brownies to rise.
Why does this brownie recipe use unsweetened chocolate squares to make coconut oil brownies?
Using solid chocolate squares and melt it enables a chewier brownie while cocoa powder makes a more cake-like brownie! I want a chewier brownie with this recipe.
Homemade brownies are one of the tastiest snacks! Coconut Oil Brownies adds a flavor spin on brownies and they are so good with a cold glass of milk!
