Welcome to the MCT Oil Recipe series!
For people trying to lose weight or gain muscle, MCT oil is a popular ingredient in cooking. MCTs — mainly C8 and C10 — are good fats that provide energy quickly without raising blood sugar levels. MCT oil is derived from coconuts and is used as a dietary supplement. People also enjoy it as an alternative to olive oil, as MCT Oil has fat burning properties. MCT oil is often used for cooking keto friendly recipes or meals that are high in healthy fats.
Many people believe that MCT oil is unhealthy for them. They think it can lead to irregular body composition, high-fat buildup, and raised cholesterol levels. But such beliefs are false. Adding MCT oil into your low-carb diet is good for you and provides many health benefits.
People like MCT oil because it helps with weight loss, and it aligns with a ketogenic diet. It is used as short term energy boost to replace calorie-heavy foods that leave you lethargic, without the addition of fat or sugar. It can also promote a feeling of satiety and curb food cravings, which leads to healthy weight management and lower body fat.
Without further ado, let's get into the first recipe of this series. We will show you how to make a delicious MCT Oil Keto Mini-Muffin!
