If you’re a coconut lover like me, we’ve got something refreshing for you that will excite your taste buds.
My love for coconut is deep that anything that contains coconut in it gets my attention. Coconut rice, coconut milk, coconut biscuits, coconut bread, coconut flavoured ice cream. I even chew coconut raw as a meal.
“Coconuts are highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. Unlike cow’s milk, coconut milk is lactose free so can be used as a milk substitute by those with lactose intolerance. It is a popular choice with vegans and makes a great base for smoothies, milkshakes or as a dairy alternative in baking” – bbcgoodfood.
One coconut delicacy I enjoy is coconut chips, unfortunately it’s hard to find well made coconut chips in stores these days. They’re either too dried or sugar loaded or even too oily because they were deep fried.
Today, we shall be showing you how to make Exotic Coconut Flakes as prepared by Hammie Holawale , perfect for snacking or as an addition to cereals.
If you’re also looking for a side business to lay your hands on, these can be packaged and sold or supplied to stores.
Honey or maple syrup, slicer or knife, an oven and of course coconuts. Make sure to buy good quality coconuts.
Break coconuts, remove the edible contents, wash and slice with either a slicer or a knife.
Spread sliced coconuts on oven tray, add honey or maple syrup and mix very well. Ensure you coat all coconut flakes with honey or maple syrup very well.
Place in the oven and set oven to 350 degree and bake for 40 – 45 mins. Your coconut flakes comes out crispy, looking this way.
Leave to cool very well before storing in air-tight container.
