Roasted Coconut Chips by Danielle - 2 oz

Danielle roasted coconut chips are one of my favorite coconut products out there. They’re crispy and toasty and salty-sweet. And best of all, they’re made from the meat of young coconuts, so they’ve got this floral-aromatic rich custardy essence that’s just incredible, and takes me right to Thailand, where young coconuts are as plentiful as fast food restaurants are in the US. Yes, these chips are roasted and come in a bag, but they taste so fresh I like to savor each toasty-buttery-crisp chip one at a time, imagining I’m someplace tropical and warm.

For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.

Coconut is one of my favorite foods, and always has been. When I was little, I would beg my mother to buy me a coconut whenever I happened to spot one at our suburban supermarket. I’d break the tough brown shell with a hammer, and revel in every bit of creamy flesh. There was just something so deeply delicious about coconut — I could never get enough. But times changed, and coconut became a forbidden food, full of something truly evil called “saturated fat.” I stopped eating it except on rare blissful occasions. And then about 15 years ago, when I was a raw vegan, I came across some studies that touted coconut as actually healthy. I kept reading. And I started eating coconut again, with abandon, in all of its forms — from chips to oil to butter. I’ve never looked back.

Best of all, when I eat these, I know I’m putting good stuff in my body. Yes, for a few decades, coconut was vilified by the American nutritional mainstream (many say that Big Soy was behind this), but there’s been a reversal during the past decade, and coconut is now being celebrated as the health-giving food it truly is. Studies are coming out weekly, it seems, further supporting coconut’s role in supporting health in a whole spectrum of ways — from weight loss to energy-boosting to cognitive enhancement to immune boosting. Coconut is chock-full of lauric acid and medium-chain triglycerides, which have incredible effects on human health. Far from being unhealthy, the “saturated” fats in coconut are among the healthiest substances we can consume. People who once avoided coconut oil are now consuming it by the tablespoon, and loving the effects. Yes, it’s been a long road for coconut. But you can now feel good about consuming it freely and happily.

Danielle uses a special process to make these coconut chips so amazing. Sliced, roasted, then flash-baked in small batches, these hand-crafted young coconut chips may be the best coconut foodstuff you’ve ever eaten. They’re perfect as a snack, as a dessert, or as a dessert topping. But you’ll probably just want to eat them right out of the bag. All the time.
