Whether it’s sweet or unsweet, shredded coconut is a delicious treat that is both tasty and good for you. But when coconut is toasted in the oven, the flavor becomes that much more amazing. Toasting coconut is incredibly simple and fast to make, so here’s a few quick steps on how to toast shredded coconut!
1) Preheat an oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2) Spread the shredded coconut in an even layer on a baking sheet. This is important so the coconut can toast evenly.
3) Toast the coconut in the oven for 5 minutes, toss with a heatproof spatula, then toast for an additional 5 minutes or until the coconut is golden brown and dry. Enjoy immediately or store in an air-tight container for up to two weeks.
