A couple of years ago we switched from toxic non-stick pans to stainless steel. I loved using them from the very beginning, but couldn't quite figure out how to use them at high heat for crepes, pancakes, and the like. Everything would just stick, burn, and be a total mess with butter. Then I finally discovered the beauty of coconut oil, especially paired with stainless steel pans. I am finally enjoying making crepes! I've recently discovered Kelapo and the high quality organic coconut oil they make.
There are a lot of things I love about it. The high smoke point, clear color when melted, the very subtle - barely noticeable coconut taste. Of course, most beneficial of all is the nutritional value. The good, healthy plant fats in coconut oil are similar to what's found in breast milk! It has a myriad of health benefits.
There are two ways I love to use Kelapo Virgin Coconut Oil - for frying and in smoothies. I don't often fry anything, I usually just steam or cook at low heat. But sometimes we crave crepes or pancakes and this works out perfectly (not so perfect mini crepe of mine below, recipe coming soon!). We also drink a lot of smoothies for snacks and even as meals in the summer time. The coconut oil is perfect to add for an additional nutritional boost and to make it more filling.
