Toasting coconut lends a richer nuttier taste, crunchier texture, and a beautiful golden hue that makes your coconut desserts pop!

Servings: 4(1 cup total)
1cupShredded, Shaved, or Flaked sweetened coconut
Using a small or large skillet (depending on how much you’re toasting), spread coconut out and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until flakes are mostly golden brown; about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and transfer to a plate or bowl to cool.
• Coconut can burn very easily, so don’t rush it by turning up the heat and trying to go faster.• Unsweetened coconut tends to brown slower, so it might take a little extra time.• Toasted coconut can be stored in an air tight container up to a month (or longer in the freezer), but as time goes on, it will lose some of that sharp flavor.
