There was some kind of cake recipe I ran across, and I can't remember where or what it was now, but it was supposed to taste olive oily. I thought that sounded pretty interesting, but not a whole cake's worth of interesting, if you know what I mean. I wouldn't mind trying a sliver to try.

Smokepoint really doesn´t say much about the health regarding heating oils. Oils that are more polyunsaturated, in general isn´t healthy heated up no matter their smoke point. - while mono unsaturated and especially saturated fats are less trouble when heated.

Well, maybe when the whole family is SWAMI'd, it will turn out that all of us can have coconut oil and I'll be able to bake with that again. But for now I'll stick with oils I know are safe for all of us.
I want to give that idea of cooking with EVOO in everthing a try. We have some overripe peaches in the fridge that need to be made into peach cobbler for Shabbos. I think we'll use olive oil (or maybe a mixture of olive and coconut) in the crumb topping and see how that comes out. We only have enough peaches for a small pie anyway, and the house is well stocked with rice flour, agave, and mild molasses.

I wouldn't feel bad using coconut oil on the kids, regardless of BTD,or GTD not known. If they were eating it regularly and it was not on their swami, than it might not be good. But they are so many who say coconut oil has a lot of upsides, it's hard to discount.
