Toasted Coconut Chips

Coconut Chips 3

I have no words.

Except for ‘make these’.

That’s all.

Note: Though the chips look a little toasty in the photo above, remember that coconut sugar is brown, which accounts for much of the dark colour. They are not burnt!

Toasted Coconut Chips
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, soy-free, egg-free, five ingredients or less
Recipe type: Snack/Dessert
Serves: 6
  • 3 cups wide coconut flakes
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Put the coconut flakes in a large bowl.
  3. In a small pot over low heat, melt the applesauce, coconut sugar and water until it becomes syrupy.
  4. Pour the liquid over the coconut flakes and gently toss until all the flakes are coated. Some of them may break as you stir – that's okay.
  5. Spread the flakes onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring every 6 to 8 minutes or so, until the chips are dry and crispy. Keep an eye on them so they don't burn.

    I just saw coconut chips at Trader Joe’s recently and thought they sounded good but did not get them. I think I have coconut flakes in the pantry, so I might give these a go. Thanks for sharing!
