Introduction: Dry Roasted Coconut Chips
Here is a delicious all-natural food for snacking as a paleo dieter! We dry the flesh of a coconut to create these Dry Roasted Coconut Chips which we naturally sweeten and add a bit of salt for a delicious salty and sweet combination. These chips are very similar to the popular DANG Toasted Coconut Chips, and now we show you how to create these marvelous little creations in the comfort of your own home!

- Drain the coconut shell of water, and then break the shell to remove the flesh from the coconut shell.
- Peel off all of the brown exterior coconut skin on the flesh with a peeler.
- Using either a knife, mandolin, or food processor slicing blade, slice all of the coconut meat into thin uniform slices and place into a mixing bowl.
- Add 1/4 cup maple syrup (1/8 cup maple syrup for less sweet) and sea salt to the mixing bowl and toss to coat the coconut chips.
- Bake on a baking sheet for about 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
