And I have most certainly eaten chocolate chips by the handful.

So let’s just combine the two into rounded toasted coconut chocolate chip scones.

My afternoon snack for the whole week has just been planned.

Grab a cup of coffee or chocolate milk and let’s get baking.

But a word of caution, don’t relax too much because you only want to toast your coconut, not burn it :)

  9. Place the shredded coconut on a baking sheet, bake at 325 degrees F for 4-6 minutes, stirring to prevent burning. Coconut can burn easily, so keep an eye on it. Remove the pan from the oven, let it cool for 5 minutes. Use your fingers to break the coconut into smaller pieces.
