Roast coconut pieces |Sweet & salty coconut | Taco roasted coconut | Recipe – vegan & gluten free

If you have some coconut chips at home, and tired of eating them just as they are… why not trying roasting them and adding some seasoning. They turn out extra crispy and delicious, and are super simple to make!!! Not to mention, the amount of seasoning or flavourings you can use are endless!

I decided to make one sweet & salty version: Stevia and salt

And a savoury, using taco seasoning.

However afterwards i realised i should have tried one using liquid smoke as that might have turned out delicious. And apparently you can make/buy coconut bacon… and i am thinking it might have been similar to that! So next time i buy coconut chips i will try different variations of this!

I didn’t measure anything as you don’t really need to…. my tip is to just use a little bit of oil (for one of the batches i made i used a little too much oil so the chips turned out a little too greasy.). You want just enough oil so that the seasoning sticks to the chips as well as makes the chips get a little crunch. You could use a spray oil if you have at home!

What you need:

Coconut chips

Seasoning/flavouring of choice

Oil of choice

& parchment paper

How to:

Preheat oven to 150 degrees celsius. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.

In seperate bowls pour some coconut chips and your seasoning of choice. Add c.a 1/2-1 tsp oil, depending on how much coconut chips you use. Add more oil if necessary. Mix well until the coconut chips are coated in the seasoning and oil.

Place the coconut chips on the baking pan – spread the chips out so that they bake evenly.

Do the same for the rest of your coconut chips (with different seasoning).

Bake in the oven c.a 8-10 minutes – keep an eye on them and turn over/rotate the pieces after c.a 3-4 minutes.

Eat and enjoy!

**Note, i think you can roast them in a pan as well.. not sure how they will turn out though!

As this recipe is so simple i decided to not do a recipe card… but i hope that is ok!! 🙂

    I always use spray oil – I find it a lot more convienient. You don`t have to buy a special one, you can just get a normal spray bottle and fill it with the oil of your choice.
    The coconut chips sound lovely done like this – would never have thought of it myself but this is one to remember next time I have any 🙂

    1. That is a great idea, i think i will have to buy a spray bottle. I hate when i am going to drizzle some oil on veggies and i end up pouring way too much so they just end up greasy and mushy instead of slightly crispy. So i think a spray bottle would be so much easier!!
