My kids love salt, onion, and garlic snacks (like chex mix). They also love popcorn. But unfortunately popcorn is a big no-no with people who have colitis. Plus its not Paleo. So my son can not have it anymore. Lately my husband and I have been bringing toasted coconut chips to the movies (rebels!). The book Well Fed introduced me to them, and now I adore them. But instead of doing cinnamon and salt this time around, I decided to try a Lawrys season salt type flavor (minus the Lawrys cornstarch and anti caking agents). All three boys give them two thumbs up. They are super easy and totally kid friendly.
TOASTED COCONUT SNACK CHIPS
2 cups coconut flakes (NOT shreds)
1 tsp onion powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
Pepper to taste
Heat a large skillet on medium high heat.
Add coconut flakes and stir as they start to brown (3-5 mins)
Add spices, stir
These can be stored in an airtight container for a few days, although ours never last more than an hour 🙂
