Walnut Brownie

I'm craving for some brownies and whipped up this very simple and easy Walnut Brownie to go with a scoop of ice cream.

It certainly is satisfying to have this indulgence in this hot weather! And the best part of it is - there is minimal washing to do. 

I am also using Medella's Organic Premium Coconut Cooking Oil to bake my brownie.

Many have asked me if the food cooked/baked with this coconut oil will leave behind a very strong coconut oil smell. No worries at all. Not only does it not affect the taste of your food, there is also no smell at all! Other than the host of health benefits as shared below, Medella's coconut oil is also suitable for deep frying due to its high smoke point.

Coconut oil has been consumed in tropical countries for thousands of years and packs loads of health benefits which include but not limited to skin care, health care, improving digestion and immunity against infections and diseases. Here are some of the health benefits:

- Treats pancreatitis and alzheimer's disease
- Improves Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes
