[Product Review] McKenzie's Toasted Coconut Chips

New to the McKenzie's product range are these Toasted Coconut Chips. 

I am on a huge coconut kick at the moment, with my pantry shelf full of coconut products in a variety of forms. In there you can find reduced fat desiccated coconut (which I made milk with), coconut flour, coconut nectar and coconut aminos (a low sodium, gluten free alternative to soy sauce). It was only natural for me to pick up a few bags to try out and review.  

Made from just coconut and sugar, these contain no preservatives, and are safe for vegans, celiacs and those with a nut allergy. Despite coconut containing the word nut, they're actually a fruit (That's your little bit of trivia for today).

The flesh from coconuts is often quite plain, but with the addition of sugar, it elevates the taste and aroma to a delightful combination of sweet and savoury. Toasting coconut is a useful method of really bringing out that wonderful coconut flavour. 

Coconut chips serve a different purpose to that of desiccated coconut. You wouldn't eat a handful of shredded or desiccated coconut, but once you open a bag of coconut chips, you'll be hard pressed to stop yourself. The crisp nature of them is a more appetising texture, lending them to be a stand-out ingredient in recipes. 

Try these coconut chips in my granola recipe, sprinkled over some vegan banana ice cream, or just grab a handful to snack on. 

McKenzie's Toasted Coconut Chips are currently 40% off at Coles supermarkets, but only until Tuesday, so get in quick. Even at full price, you get five times the amount of product for a similar price to their competitors. 

You can find these coconut chips in the baking aisle, alongside the full range of McKenzie's coconut products.
