Double Chocolate Billionaires

One upon a time, a somewhat young and adventurous lady entered her kitchen. The goal for the day, was to try to revamp a recipe she had seen. She pushed shuffle on her music player and gathered all the necessary ingredients. What was supposed to be a dairy-free and gluten-free version of a chocolate billionaire recipe, unexpectedly, but delightfully turned into these Double Chocolate Billionaires.

You see, if you haven't already guessed, this young (OK somewhat young) lady is me. And as happens on more occasions then I like to admit, I messed up the original planned recipe. But I didn't give up. I took a step back, did a little kitchen dancing, and quickly revamped the revamped recipe to something even greater.


Turning An Oops to A Yum


I have said in the past that I am not the most talented of bakers. I'm not sure if it's a lack of patience or what, but making any kind of dessert can sometimes be a roll of the dice for me.. will it work.. or won't it.

That's what makes it fun though.double chocolate billionaires on wax paper on cookie sheet

It's also exciting when those 'oops' turn into something really delicious like these double chocolate Billionaires.

Adding In Some Healthy Fats


Now a days it seems you can find coconut oil in just about anything. From lotions to smoothies, coconut oil has been toted (and joked about) as the miracle oil.

Whether or not it's a miracle oil, I don't know, but what I do know is that I love adding it to my recipes when I can.

About a year or two ago I was asked to be a part of Barlean's blogger program. Having already been a big fan of their products, I jumped at the opportunity.

Coconut oil is a great source of MCT's (medium-chain triglycerides) which are a form of fatty acids.

Now before you freak out about the words 'fatty acids', please know that MCT oils have been shown to contain many health benefits. Studies show that they can help with healthy cognitive functions , weight management, and even heart health, amongst many other health benefits.

Barlean's Butter Flavored Coconut Oil


So taking into effect all the health benefits that coconut oil has, adding it into my recipes is almost second nature now. It also doesn't hurt that the Butter Flavored Coconut Oil tastes AMAZING and works great in just about any type of recipe.

And before you get worried about the word 'flavor', please know that the butter flavoring in this coconut oil comes from natural botanical. Nothing artificial.

You can rest assured that if use this oil you'll just be getting something that, in my opinion, is a natural and healthy alternative to butter.

How About You?


Have you ever gone into making a recipe and it turned out maybe even better then you thought it would.. due to an 'oops' ? Have your tried Butter Flavored Coconut oil in any recipes? If so, leave me a comment and let me know. I'd love to hear about it!

  6. These look great. I have never actually tried butter flavored coconut oil. I was always a little hesitant on what it would actually taste like but I might have to give it a go.
