Sweet and Crispy Homemade Toasted Coconut Chips

It's 9 P.M.  The kids are all in bed and you want a treat.

You want something healthy, but you don't want to spend an hour and half making it.  You also don't want to be up until midnight cleaning a sink full of dishes.

If this scenario sounds familiar, then this recipe, my friend, is for you.

As long as you keep a few bags of coconut flakes stocked in your pantry, and your cast iron skillet out on the stove, then you are a mere 10 minutes away from crispy, coconut-y, sweet goodness.

For this recipe, you will need:

3 cups coconut flakes

3 tablespoons honey


First, things first, preheat your cast iron skillet over medium heat.

After the skillet is starting to get toasty, add in the coconut flakes.

Stir constantly.

Don't make the mistake of thinking you can abandon this process.

These flakes toast up very quickly and will easily burn if you're not stirring regularly.


After, they look 3/4 of the way toasted, add in the honey.

Stir for a few more minutes, until they are toasty, but not burnt.

They won't seem crispy right away, but after they sit to cool for a few minutes, they turn into chips.

If we haven't devoured them all, and some make it through the night, they are super crispy and delicious the next morning.
