These coconut chips are a snack for every coconut lover! We sprinkle them on top of our homemade coconut milk ice cream, coconut flour cupcakes, mix them into our granola and eat them plain.
These coconut chips taste amazing! I love to eat them right out of the oven. They’re sweet, salty, and coconutty. They keep for several months. We like to make a large batch of them to keep on hand to decorate my coconut treats (like my coconut milk coffee latte).
I first discovered coconut chips while shopping at Costco years ago. I fell in love with them and decided I needed to learn how to make them myself.
To my surprise, it was effortless to make them, and I already had all the ingredients in my kitchen to do so!
HOW TO MAKE COCONUT CHIPS
Coconut chips are easy and quick to make and are a great addition to desserts, smoothies, chia seed pudding, salads, sandwiches, soups, and more.
These chips are simple and only uses five ingredients. You’ll need coconut flakes, vanilla extract, maple syrup, coconut oil, and sea salt.
To get started, you’ll need to mix the coconut flakes, vanilla extract, maple syrup, coconut oil (melted), and sea salt together in a medium bowl.
Next, you’ll spread the coconut chips evenly over a cookie sheet. I didn’t think to line my cookie sheet, but I think it’s a good idea! A sheet of parchment paper would help with the cleanup of this recipe.
Lastly, bake the chips until crispy, about 12-15 minutes.
Store the chips in an air-tight container. Use on desserts, drinks, salads, and more. Enjoy!
Flavor Options: Add a teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the coconut flakes to add a cinnamon flavor! You may also like to add lime extract to the chips before baking to make coconut-lime flavored chips!
