I’ve had several emails and comments since I posted both the Whole Wheat Quick Mix recipe and the Tropical Traditions buy one get one free (with free shipping) coconut oil deal. Many are wondering: Can you use coconut oil instead of palm shortening in the quick mix?
Yes, you sure can!
While I really, really love Palm Shortening and do prefer it in this recipe, Coconut Oil does work just as well and is just as healthy if not moreso. Plus, the Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil that is on sale at Tropical Traditions right now is flavorless, making it perfect for a recipe like Quick Mix.
So…if you haven’t taken advantage of the BOGO coconut oil with free shipping at Tropical Traditions, I say “go for it!” Then make yourself some Whole Wheat Quick Mix so that you’ll be all set for the recipes I’m sharing here and in my upcoming book!
