Bounty Brownies with Asda Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a great alternative to butter and it smells divine!  Asda have launched the lowest priced extra virgin coconut oil at only £2.35 a jar and to celebrate this exciting news I thought why not make Bounty Brownies with the “Baking Brothers” (since we have started baking more I thought the boys needed an official title!).

Virgin coconut oil keeps the raw nature of the coconut so it retains the incredible smell and taste of coconut.  It’s a pleasure to bake with and apparently has lots more health benefits than butter.  Coconut oil has gone from being a niche ingredient to a kitchen staple.  At that price I will definitely be keeping stocked up from now on.

Not only does it help with frying, baking and roasting it doubles up to work with your beauty regimes (from tooth whitener to re-hydrating your skin and hair), so you can look and feel beautiful from adding coconut oil to your life.


175g Asda Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
85g plain flour
250g caster sugar
3 eggs
4 Bounty bars
40g cocoa powder

Preheat the oven (fan oven about 160C.

Coconut oil and the flour (sieved in by youngest).

Followed by the eggs, cocoa powder and sugar.

The Bounty bars were cut up and added into the final mixture, make sure you mix them in well.

We popped it in the oven for about 25 minutes (checking the brownie with a cocktail stick making sure it came away quite clean to make sure it was ready).  

Then its a good idea to leave the brownies to cool so you can make a better job of cutting them up, patience is not my strong point so I tend to try and serve them as soon as possible.
