DIY Toasted Coconut Flakes
I like coconut flakes only if they are toasted. I make a recipe from the THM book and it is AMAZING and my favorite candy to help me during my cravings for candy laden with sugar. I try really hard not to have sugar but I am not going to lie, if I don’t have one of these candies handy I am going to eat the next best thing. I know, I know, it is not good for me! But it is good to my taste buds. I have to pick a candy that does not have corn products at all or I will get sick, so I choose the healthiest chocolate out there and guess what! I buy organic chocolate! So, it can technically be a better choice than the worst choice. (I am not going to lie though, if I could eat chocolate with corn syrup, I would eat the Hershey Cookies and Cream bar!) I can’t believe I said that. But it felt good to get it off my chest haha!
Anyways, here is the tutorial and the recipe instructions.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Use a baking pan lined with parchment paper and place the coconut flakes evenly onto the pan. Place in the oven for 3-5 minutes checking them at 3 minutes until you are happy with their color. I like mine golden brown and at about 3 minutes mine were done in my oven.
If you follow THM these are great for an S and small amounts are a FP but it is hard to keep to a few!
I hope you enjoy these coconut flakes. Leave a comment if you try this recipe and let me know what you thought!
