I needed to make a simple video on how to toast coconut. There are many commercial sweetened toasted coconuts, but I needed a low carb alternative for an upcoming video. This recipe would also go great on the low carb coconut cream pie I posted (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDB1UcdwNdE). Another option would be as part of a breakfast cereal (slivered almonds, coconut, chia seeds). Stay tuned for the next video, you won’t want to miss it.
