Quick Toasted Shredded Coconut

A quick way to make toasted shredded coconut in the oven. Perfect as a snack, topping for your cereal, ice cream, yogurt, cake decorating, etc.

When living in a non-tropical place, you have to find ways to enjoy your favorite treats, coconut treats. When buying coconut in the supermarket, there’s no guarantee that you will choose a good one. You will have to check the husk and the shell and shake the coconut to ensure that the water inside hasn’t dried up.

But how about skipping buying a whole coconut and purchasing unsweetened shredded coconut? This is one quick way to enjoy toasted shredded coconut. There are also other methods, such as pan-roasting the coconut and microwaving the shredded coconut.

Pan-roasting requires a lot of patience and attention. You have to monitor the pan and keep stirring the shredded coconut so it does not burn. A good nonstick pan is necessary. The microwave method is not ideal for me because of moisture. Your food loses moisture when microwaving food.
