First off, to those of you who celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a wonderful day with your family and ate some great food.

Maybe there are many people out who feel the same way, but I just absolutely love putting organic coconut oil on my bread. (When I do this around my father around, he looks at me like I am an alien. For him, it is nothing but butter.)

I have nothing against jelly. In fact, I really like the BioNaturae jellies that come from Italy.  They are spectacular, fresh, and sugar-free.

However, the taste that coconut oil gives to bread is second to none in my book.

But I am kind of a coconut oil fanatic. I always put it in my smoothies and my chia seed puddings, take a teaspoon of it after a workout, and use it as a moisturizer.

Furthermore, the health benefits of coconut are numerous. As a medium-chain fatty-acid, it is easily digested, does not cause spikes in insulin, is full of lauric acid (which gets converted in the body and provides anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties), supports the immune system, strengthens the heart, and promotes a lean body, among other things.

There is a popular book out there called The Coconut Oil Miracle, which people mention to me all of the time. I’ve read parts of it, not the whole book, and the reviews on Amazon are extremely positive.

So, I was just standing around the kitchen today thinking about how hooked I am with my bread and coconut oil, and thought that I would share this with you.

Are you a fan of this combination as well? Or, am I alone here? I’d love to know, so please leave a comment below.


The raw, organic coconut oil I use is by Artisana, and the brand name of the bread that is at the top is called Rudolph’s. It is found in the frozen section of the supermarket and is wheat-free, yeast-free, and salt-free.

I did a post about Rudolph’s a while ago and am a massive fan of it.

    I love having coconut oil on my toast, but i struggle to spread it? What is the best way of softening it so it’s spead easily?
    Thank you in advance

    I always use coconut oil on my toast, also on my hair and in smoothies. It’s good stuff

  • Cheryl says:

    I was wondering about using coconut oil on my bread/ toast as I am a massive fan of butter & spreads & use way too much, spread much too thickly. I tried the coconut oil one day & realised I only needed a really thin scraping to get the same taste as a really thick slathering of butter/ margerine. I think this may help with weight loss as I need to lose a few pounds.☺ I hope this will be a healthy adjustment to my diet.

    I have just started living without dairy, gluton, wheat & meat and was thinking what to put on my corn biscuits, when I saw the coconut oil & wondered what it would taste like. Since living in Spain & bread is liberally splashed with olive oil n salt, I thought why not try coconut oil. Its delicious. On its own or with something like honey, salt too, lovely.

    Hi Gabrielle,

    I looked up for this to see if its a weird thing to do so and I found your post. I am so happy that someone out there appreciate enjoy it as well.COCONUT OIL ON BREAD is amazing.


  • Homesteader says:

    Did you also know rubbing coconut oil on arms gets rid of those annoying, tiny bumps some people get? Yep it’s true. Apply once or twice a day and those little unsightly boogers on the back of the upper arm disappear. Takes a while. Be patient. This was a link on Pinterest that actually works!
    PS I apply my coconut oil at night about 30 mins before bed. Absorbs well.
    A little goes a long way!

  • Wow amazing use of coconut oil.I never heard that coconut oil can be used also on bread. Is it tasty?I will follow these tips…and also will eat bread with coconut oil.Thanks for sharing.

  • I have been using this for frying eggs and omelettes for four years. Now use it daily instead of butter on my lunchtime crispbreads with cheese.

  • ooh yea. Im eating it right now and it prompted me to see if I was alone on it. I actually squirt a spray of braggs ontop of my coconut oil bread. Im hooked

    Hi Max
    Is Trader Joes Organic Coconut oil close to yours as far as being healthy wise and i have a question about a quote in your story.

    “But I am kind of a coconut oil fanatic. I always put it in my smoothies and my chia seed puddings, take a teaspoon of it after a workout, and use it as a moisturizer.”

    That taking a teaspoon part did you mean stick a teaspoon in the jar scoop some out and eat it plain or put it in a glass of water and very so slightly heat it up or can you do both ways. And the part about moisturizer do you get a little on your hands and just rub it somewhere on your body and leave it there and not wash it off ever. Thanks for all your help and all that you do.


    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Ray,

      After a workout, yes, I will take a small teaspoon straight. I don’t heat it up.

      Moisturizer: Yes, I just rub it on my face or another part of my body. It may initially seem greasy but after a little while, it will be fine. Don’t use too much of it or you will feel like you do need to rub it off.

      Hope this helps.

      Live well,

    I tried coconut oil on bread because of this post and fell in love. It is my new breakfast or snack obsession. Sprinkled with some cinnamon it is absolutely delicious!

    I also have been experimenting with coconut oil as a body moisturizer, but find it to be a little too oily, which I understand is par for the course when moisturizing with an oil, however can you tell me how you use the coconut oil as a moisturizer. Maybe I am doing something wrong. Also, do you use the Artisana coconut oil to moisturize?

    Thank you for all the great information!!

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Gabrielle,

      My pleasure and thanks for your words!

      As a moisturizer, it is heavy – you are correct. Either my skin is dry or used to it, I don’t have a problem with the oiliness. If you decrease the amount you use, that may help. So, just a tiny drop and build from there. It is very possible that the skin will adapt to the coconut oil. Or, it may be that your skin is just not taking to it.

      Hope this helps!!

      Live well,

    Never tried it straight on the bread — I like it on top of the coconut oil. The best combo of mesquite/coconut oil/bread uses Food For Life’s Millet bread. It has a chewy texture that reminds me of cornbread. Here is the link:

  • MeGo says:

    You are not alone! I also love coconut oil on bread and agree with you, too, about BioNaturae jams and Rudolph’s bread, though I prefer their organic rye sunflower or organic rye flax seed. If you want to make it taste *even better* try some Nutiva brand Coconut Manna spread on top of the coconut oil. Then, sprinkle mesquite powder over that, along with a nice salt like Himalayan Pink or Fleur de Sel. Incredible! Enjoy!!

  • Hannah says:

    I am eating artisana organic coconut oil on my locally baked toast right now!!! So delicious! I also use the same product as a facial moisturizer every night, and my face looks amazing every time I wake up 🙂 haha. Glad I’m not alone in my love of clean eating.

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Hannah,

      No, you are certainly not alone!! There are many of us out there, you just have to look (hard).

      Live well,

    I also love spreading coconut oil on my bread! (I make my own gluten-free, wheat-free bread.) I have read The Coconut Oil Miracle, which I discovered as I was researching how to treat a personal health issue. This book, and beginning to consume more coconut, coconut oil, milk and cream, as well as using coconut oil products for skin care has changed my life. I highly recommend the book.

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Beth,

      Thanks for sharing your story and I am so happy to hear that this miracle food has changed your life. I, too, love using coconut oil as a body moisturizer. It’s amazing!!

      Live well,

  • Julie says:

    I would love to find that Rudolph’s bread – is it in most grocery stores? I live in FL…I try to avoid wheat and know that Ezekiel is sprouted but still contains wheat.

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Julie,

      I don’t believe that it is in most grocery stores, so you’ll have to ask you local market to order it. If their distributor can get the bread, it probably won’t be a problem.

      Good luck!

      Live well,

  • Julie says:

    LOVE spreading coconut oil on Ezekiel toast pre-workout – it’s tastes AMAZING especially with a tiny bit of pink himalayan salt sprinkled on top; and gives me the perfect amount of energy. I look forward to it every day 🙂
