Toasted Coconut Flakes

Toasted Coconut Flakes

This is a very simple snack.  My daughter is always wanting me to buy coconuts.  She likes the coconut water, but not the actual meat.  So, this one was for her.

1 coconut
2T raw honey, slightly melted
1/4 tsp sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Crack coconut and drain water into a bowl.

Chunk off pieces of the coconut and place in the coconut water as you work.

Once the coconut is completely chunked, rinse pieces in a strainer.

Using a potato peeler, peel coconut flakes.  Transfer to a clean bowl.  Add honey and salt.  Stir to evenly coat.

Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking dish and spread evenly.

Cook for 20 minutes.  At each 5 minute interval, stir and flip the coconut flakes.

Turn oven off and let the coconut flakes dry out in the oven for another 7 minutes.

Remove from oven and let sit for 30 minutes.
