The Best Dried Coconut Snacks

Called the “tree of life” by the many cultures, the coconut palm provides both sustenance and shelter to communities around the world. While we once thought of the coconut as a fuzzy, hard food that was lacking in taste, over time we’ve discovered many delicious and nutritious ways to prepare this popular nutriment. Known for being a rich source of dietary fiber and for naturally enhancing the flavors of other foods, coconut chips are a healthier alternative to sugary snacks for many reasons. Of the many brands that sell coconut today, we’ve selected four different varieties as our top picks. Check them out below!

What We Liked

Coconut chips are a multipurpose food. While it’s true we can bake them into large chip sizes and serve them as a tasty nibble, we can also cut them into flakes that take them beyond the snack bowl. These raw, vegan, low carb chips come in 1- to 3-pound bags so you can enjoy them as you snack and cook throughout the day. Throw them in your cereal for some extra crunch and flavor, or sprinkle them into your favorite desserts to add a hint of healthy coconut.
