For future reference, any fat that is solid at room temperature is usually full of saturated fats (which should be avoided). Try substituting olive oil.

"I love coconut oil, because it's yummy, healthy, and versatile!"

I'm not going to argue that coconut oil isn't yummy or versatile, but HEALTHY? No.

Coconut oil has a very high saturated fat content, 13 grams of fat per tablespoon according to the USDA website.

Don't assume just because this oil comes from coconuts constitutes it as a health food. I would recommended sticking to beauty products with this saturated fat.
