This is one of the recipes in the Clean Snacks book referenced above. I will be using this recipe here because this book isn’t the only book that has a variation of this recipe.
In the coming blog entry I will feature another recipe that I think is even better. I plan on buying the Clean Snacks book. See whether you’d like to buy the cookbook too. I’m not a fan of the Paleo or Keto diets these recipes are linked to. Nor am I a believer that you must go on any diet to lose weight.
Only the recipes in this book are easy to make. Even though paleo and keto are in the title this didn’t deter me from checking it out of the library.
The author of this cookbook isn’t a nutritionist. Yet I can attest that the 2 recipes I’ve created from the book are tasty. The snacks here are healthier than potato chips or pretzels or a candy bar or can of cola.
Toasted Coconut Chips
2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
Pinch sea salt
Preheat the oven to 300 F.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl combine the ingredients.
Mix very well.
Pour the mixture on the baking sheet.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Stir every 3 to 4 minutes until golden brown.
I used coconut chips not flakes and this was perfectly fine. I buy the Fresh Direct coconut chips.
