After lots of antibiotics for several infections, I needed some healing supplements to help rebuild my brain and circulatory system. My doctor prescribed Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) oil and coconut oil three times a day; this was a little too much like eating liquid butter; so I added some chocolate chips and froze the mix into teaspoon portion chocolate bites that taste pretty good like Magic Shell used for ice cream topping.
MCT oils and coconut oils are used for premi babies to Alzheimer's patients to people with seizures for healing. From what I understand it metabolizes in the body quickly and feeds the brain directly.

Extra: If you get burned out on the flavor, try a handful of strawberries and some agave nectar sweetener or 1/2 cup of peanut butter and a few squirts of agave nectar. 

Step 1: Recipe

4 oz MCT oil
3 oz virgin coconut oil
1/4-1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Square glass dish
Measuring cups
Mixing spoon

Fridge and freezer


As a Paleo diet enthusiast, this is a great addition to help with the occasional sweet tooth pangs. I'll sometimes add unsweetened coconut flakes in as well for taste and texture. <br><br>As for your (doctor's) assessment of MCT and brain functionality, there was a recent story about Axona, a medical food emphasizing MCTs used for Alheimer's patients: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111904199404576538582281006022.html?mod=WSJ_hp_mostpop_read<br><br>Good job!
Thanks for the Axona link. Coconut flakes will be added to my next batch. :)<br>
