How to make Coconut Chips
Perfect for decorating baked goods sprinkling over salads, smoothies, ice-cream, and more!
Of all the possible things that you can make out of a single coconut, coconut chips become one of my favourite. Whether you need unsweetened coconut chips for decoration, toasted coconut flakes to top off baked goods, or flavoured ‘coconut chips’ to eat as a snack or sprinkle over dishes, this ingredient really is super versatile. By learning how to make this at home you will find endless ways of using it on daily basis.
All you need for this recipe is mature coconut, a peeler or mandolin, and an oven or dehydrator
I absolutely love to have coconut chips on my pantry for snacking and also for cooking needs. Also, coconut is low-carb, gluten-free, nut-free, keto, grain-free, paleo, and more.
Slice and once again be careful with your fingers on this sharp machine.
Once you manage to open to coconut and I promise to make a blog on how to open a coconut. There are so many ways to do it and it is an easier task than you think.
As you can see on the photo, it is fuming a bit and that is because the easiest way to take the coconut out from the shell is boiling in water for 5/10 minutes. You just have to stick a knife in between the shell and the meat, click and will come off very easily.
Be very careful on this step as if the knife slip you will hurt yourself. That is why is important to boil to detach the coconut meat from the shell.
But please be very careful!
So now you have all in small and big bits, it is time for the next step.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
Place all the coconut slices in a big tray and brush them really well with all the ingredients mixed.
Once you take them of the oven it is really important to let it cool completely before put into the jar.
When your coconut chips are completely cool you can place them in an airtight container.
They should be crunchy and last in the jar for about a week to 10 days.
* 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil
* 1 Tablespoon of water
* 1 Tablespoon of honey
Place the tray in the oven for around 20 minutes or until they are light brown. The temperature of the oven should be 180 degrees.
They burn really quickly once the oven is hot, so be careful not to burn the whole thing.
It is probably a good idea turn them around half way through.
