Where do you buy coconut oil? I found a recipe for Paleo cookies and it calls for coconut oil. However, I am unsure where to purchase it. When I was purchasing Almond Meal/Flour the local Super Target carried it but Cub Foods did not. I did not see coconut oil at either. Maybe I am looking in the wrong section.
Well if it's there at all it SHOULD be with the rest of the oils (olive, canola, etc.). If you have a Trader Joe's nearby they have their own brand that they should have stocked. My local Costco has even begun selling large tubs of Nutiva coconut oil for ~ $21.
I have found that Trader Joe's has an excellent unrefined coconut oil, at an amazing price. If you don't have access to a Trader Joe's, you should be able to find it at most, decent, grocery stores, but you are probably going to pay a premium for it.
Thank you! This site has been extremely helpful in answering questions. I will check Cub Foods ethnic aisle along with Super Target and Costco.... if not, I did locate a Trader Joe's approx 35 miles from my house. Beats driving to Mpls where there are numerous whole food stores!
When purchasing coconut oil will normally have to choose between either refined or unrefined version. The refined version tends to taste less like coconut. IMO the unrefined variation is the way to go and can be used for a million different purposes. Trader Joe's has the best price I have ever found, and sometimes runs a special on it. Definitely worth the drive!
