20 of the Best Healthy Coconut Recipes

20 Healthy Coconut Recipes

First off, I’d like to apologize to anybody that is allergic to or hates coconut; this post is not for you. But for the rest of us coconut lovers get ready to start cooking. I love, love, LOVE, coconut in any form. It is probably my favorite fruit (and yes, it is a fruit). I cook with it, condition my hair with it, use it as lotion and any other way I can. Coconut is very good for you.

Coconut has a great reputation, as it should, but please don’t get caught in the trap thinking every recipe with some form of coconut in it is healthy. Here is a list of my top 20 healthy coconut recipes. There are a few desserts in my list and although I don’t classify any dessert as healthy, I do consider these to be much healthier dessert options. I don’t know about you, but I need some dessert in my life occasionally, or more often than I’d like to admit, but the greatest part about these desserts is that I don’t feel guilty eating them.

Note: I know some of these recipes only call for a little bit of coconut, coconut flour, coconut milk, or coconut oil but they are still delicious and so I am counting them in my post.
