When people say they eat coconut oil straight what do they mean?

Melted or solid?

I have no idea, but since I drink 2 cups of coffee every morning and tea throughout the day, I'm obviously happily addicted.

Either liquid or solid. The sensation is kinda gross when it's only half melted.

BTW the 'real' Nutella recipe is very much the same but use toasted hazelnuts and rub (most of) the skins off. Then put it all in the food processor and process for a LONG time. You want the hazelnut oil to be drawn out of the nuts. Then you won't need as much coconut oil, but lots of coconut oil is fine too!

Not the original commenter, but I have made Nutella many times. You want to add coconut oil until the texture is right **for you**. Some people prefer it stiffer; some like it softer. I would start with a tablespoon and go (up) from there. It helps if you have a super-duper food processor. That seems to work better for me than a Vitamix. Mixing with a spoon would never work for me - I don't have that much patience!

Not MY room in summer! We have to put ours in the fridge if we want solid. But I prefer liquid. It's the winter when I have to fuss with it - then our rooms are cool enough to solidify it.

Patrick3000 - coconut oil can get moldy (very nasty, google mycotoxins) if too much moisture and some spores are added over time, and double dipping is a great way to do that. Just don't.

but the coconut oil is anti-bacterial so will kill the double-dipping germs, no?

It depends on the ambient temperature. I prefer it solid, but in the summer that is not always possible unless you keep it in the fridge. Liquid likes to dribble over the edge of the spoon, and then I have more work to do when it is laundry time.

Most likely solid. Coconut oil melts at such a low temperature that it will liquify in your mouth. I sometimes eat spoonfuls right before an intense workout.

Coconut oil + coconut butter + cinnamon + cocoa powder (no honey or sweetener needed)

Put mix in ice cube tray and let solidify in freezer or fridge.

Don't eat them all at once.

Both! Or mixed with some cocoa powder, coarse sea salt and a teeny bit of honey. Put that in the fridge then try not to eat it all at the same time. I think I got this idea from someone here but without the honey. Sorry, I can't remember who.

I prefer to eat whole coconut, bonus is the delicous coconut water :) I use oils only when cooking, whole coconuts are cheaper.

@kimi same... There was a "fake" nutella recipe on the site a while ago.

========================

Fake Nutella:

2/3 full jar of Coconut Oil

1/4-1/3 c almond butter, just for the nutty flavor

2-3 TBS 100% high quality cocoa powder, make sure you spend the money to get the good stuff

1-2 tsp honey, just enough to sweeten slightly, but you should taste the nut and chocolate before any sweetness.

Mix well and store in fridge.

When you have emotional cravings, or need an afternoon snack, a spoonful does the trick. I also find it tastes more "naughty" and therefore I need less to satisfy my cravings.

================= That is what I kept in Evernote Just made a great variation with what I had in my fridge.

Thanks for asking this question! I had been wondering myself because I'm feeling like I'm not getting enough fat and was wondering exactly how to supplement with coconut oil. The answers are all very helpful. :)

Coconut oil is liquid at 76F or above and solid below that temperature, so in the average household it can sit out on the counter and remain solid. Usually it is a fairly soft solid unless you fire it into the fridge.

Remember to use a clean spoon and don't double dip!
