Spiced Coconut Chips for the Fat Fast

I know many of you are waiting for the upcoming update of KetoDiet. I would like to ensure you that the app is pending approval and it will hopefully take just a few more days. Once this update is approved, you will be able to add this and many other recipes I have recently posted on my blog directly into your planner (iPad app only feature).

Spiced Coconut Chips, which are also suitable for the FAT FAST, are my favourite keto treat. Although this recipe is sweet, there is nothing to stop you from making a savoury version.

Apart from vanilla & cinnamon, you can also try these alternatives:

  • 1-2 tsp gingerbread mix (cinnamon, pinch nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice) and 1 tbsp Erythritol
  • ½ tbsp lemon or lime zest and 1 tbsp Erythritol
  • ½ tbsp orange peel, ½ tsp cinnamon and 1 tbsp Erythritol
  • ½ tsp almond, cherry or hazelnut (home-made) extract and 1 tbsp Erythritol
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao and 1 tbsp Erythritol
  • ½ tsp salt (sea salt or pink Himalayan)
  • ½-1 tsp chilli powder and ½ tsp salt (spicy)
  • 1-2 tsp paprika and ½ tsp salt (mild)
  • herbs, onion and garlic powder, etc.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings):

Note: When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 C / 350 F. Cut the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape the seeds out using a knife.
  2. Mix the coconut oil, Erythritol, vanilla and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. Pour over the flaked coconut and spread over a baking tray. Add a pinch of salt. Place in the oven and cook for 4-7 minutes. Make sure you keep an eye on the coconut, it gets burnt easily. If you cook it too long, it will get bitter.
  4. When done, remove from the oven and set aside to cool down.
  5. Enjoy!

Hello, are these suppose to be greasy? I think I over cooked them because I kept checking it and they were too greasy.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks,
Yoli

Hi Yoli, they are a bit greasy but if you prefer them less greasy, you can omit the oil or maybe use just half. The oil is used so that the cinnamon and sweetener "stick" to the coconut. The coconut flakes will release some oil when heated but it may not be enough.

Thanks so much Martina, I will try less oil!

I made these with cocoa powder and cinnamon and used butter instead of coconut oil. Love it!!

Does this get crunchy enough for a cereal substitute? Do you know if it gets soggy in milk, almond milk.
Thank! Wink

Hi Tatti, yes, it remains crunchy and goes great with coconut milk, almond milk, yogurt or cream! Smile

Speaking of burnt coconut, I once had occasion to accidentally "burn" some creamed coconut wile trying to melt the block.  It turned dark brown AND TASTED JUST LIKE COFFEE!
I was going to use it to make a fat bomb bark candy, and used it anyway--now I had coffee-flavored bark.
I wonder if this would do the same thing if burnt?

Not sure Wenchypoo but very interesting Smile I think it just gets get bitter but it depends on your palate. I accidentally burnt some when making this recipe and that was only after 7 minutes in the oven. It's just like almonds, when you cook them for too long, they get bitter.
