Coconut Oil Caramelized Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. I love them so much that when I go to restaurants, I’ll order whatever entrée has them as part of the side just because they are there. Brussels sprouts are easy to prep, delicious to serve, and full of Vitamin C, perfect for optimizing our immune system to prevent fall and winter colds. They are also super high in fiber. Coconut Oil Caramelized Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe is a great side dish with your Thanksgiving dinner or any other meal.

    Merry Christmas, Sarah! I LOVE Brussel Sprouts. I do something similar with olive oil and without b. sugar, but want to give this a try.
    Love to you & your family. We are flying to LA to spend it with our sweet grand daughter. She is 3 yrs and as sweet as can be. Kiss & hugs, Melissa

    I omitted the brown sugar and added 1 sweet potato – chopped into ~ 1/4” cubes. Also a touch of fresh crushed garlic and sautéed everything with coconut oil instead of baking. Next time I may add some balsamic vinegar for an added twist

    Was plenty sweet,very colorful and tasty

      Sounds delicious! I love balsamic vinegar. That will work! I’m going to try it too. Thanks for sharing.
