I remember awhile ago when I was doing a Paleo diet that I came across the idea of coconut chips. Over the years I have come to love unsweetened coconut, especially toasted coconut. That’s why I decided to make these toasted cinnamon vanilla coconut chips. It’s a simple keto snack recipe with just a few ingredients but let me tell you they are addicting!
Ingredients for Toasted Coconut Chips
- coconut flakes – I bought my coconut flakes or chips at Trader Joes. You don’t want the shredded kind but rather the bigger flakes. Also make sure that they are not sweetened. If you can’t find them at Trader Joes you can find them here on Amazon.
- vanilla flavored ghee – Read below about this product. You can also use regular butter but the vanilla flavor was awesome.
- Swerve sweetener – This is my go to sweetener.
- cinnamon – Just regular cinnamon from your spice rack.

So I bought this Madagascar Vanilla Bean Ghee Butter. It is so smooth and creamy but infused with vanilla. It’s heavenly! You don’t need this of course, you can use regular butter. But if you use regular butter, put a little vanilla extract in too.
