Maple Coconut Flakes
I like to think of myself as a snack queen. My meal prep consists of me making sure I have delicious, ready to eat snacks on hand at all times. I always have a bag of Trader Joe's coconut flakes in my bag as an emergency pick-me-up. As I got more and more into coconut flake/strip snacks I couldn't ignore the price, sugar content and amount of packaging.
A 3 oz. bag of toasted coconut flakes from Whole Foods and a 12 oz. bag of Bob's Red Mill coconut flakes both come out to be about 4 dollars. This recipe not only saved me money but it helped me take control of the ingredients in my favorite snack.
Preheat your oven to 400 convention bake

12 oz. bag of Bob's Red Mill Coconut Flakes (or what you find in the bulk section)
