I made two batches, one with coconut oil, and one with olive. The coconut oil was better! If you choose to bake instead of fry, keep an eye on them, make sure to stir them up. Thinner ones got a bit charred, but were still delicious. I had the oven on 450, about 10-15 minutes on each side. Read More

I liked the flavor of these but I believe they would benefit from a bit more oil. The potatoes seemed a bit dried out and I was a bit disappointed by the lack of any sort of crust on the outside. Thanks for the idea I will tweak a little next time. Read More

These are amazing. The coconut oil really gives them a great background flavor. I still haven't determined the best cooking temperature but I've baked them at around 400-425 for 15 mins and then cranked it up to 450 at the end to try and crisp them up a bit. Read More

Very tasty. I think the coconut oil makes them crispier than other recipes I've tried. Read More

I followed the directions as written. I did find they weren't crispy, but that was alright with me. I ate some plain and some I used with a peanut dipping sauce. I've got my lunch ready for tomorrow. Read More
