Toasted Coconut Snack Chips

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.


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 🙂
