5 Ways to Use Coconut Flakes

Photo of coconut flakes in a coconut husk on a black stone background. Coconut flakes are such a versatile ingredient in the kitchen. They add flavor and texture in a variety of recipes. They can be used in recipes from breakfasts to desserts to dinner seamlessly! However, it's important to make sure when you're buying coconut flakes that you're actually getting the real deal. In fact, most shredded coconut that you find at the store is actually desiccated coconut, often filled with corn syrup and preservatives. All of the Wildly Organic coconut flakes and chips are dehydrated at a low temperature and still considered "raw"! Wildly Organic has a few varieties of coconut flakes and chips to fit all of your recipe needs:
  • Wildly Organic Fine Coconut Flakes are the smallest of the coconut flakes available. They're so fine, so they're great for coating proteins such as shrimp or fish or for topping cookies for a fine texture and flavor.
  • Wildly Organic Small Coconut Flakes are about the size of a grain of white rice. They're great for general use in desserts, but can also take place of the fine coconut flakes or large chips, too. If you're looking for a coconut flake that is the most versatile in the kitchen, the small coconut flakes are for you!
  • Wildly Organic Coconut Chips are the largest in size and are great for snacking or adding to trail mix and chia pudding for some big coconut flavor! They're great toasted in the oven for a few minutes to bring out even more coconut flavor, too.
