Giving up dairy
Oh, I also use the palm shortening for frying and baking. I prefer it to coconut oil as it is more like shortening or lard and gives the end result a lot of body (I don't bake with grains, coconut oil worked fine with grains but not with grain free). The chocolate chip cookie recipe I adore (Eat Like a Dinosaur) uses it. I had never thought of it before that. I also tried the recipe with coconut oil, the cookies were flat. When I did it with palm, they were COOKIES! I couldn't believe it. I about dropped. I hadn't had a cookie like that in ages!
