Tropical Traditions offered me the chance to review their unsweetened coconut flakes. Let me tell you, I was excited!  I can eat unsweetened coconut flakes on my “low carb” phase and when they arrived in the mail I did a happy dance.

We opened the container right away and dug in. James kept coming back for more.They are so good!

I use unsweetened coconut in plain (or Greek style) yogurt with some almonds and stevia. MMMMM!

I also use it in a cocoa treat that I can eat.

2 Tb coconut oil

1-2 tsp unsweetened cocoa

Stevia to taste–don’t use too much!

Melt coconut oil and stir in cocoa and stevia. Then add unsweetened coconut flakes and chopped almonds.

Pour onto a saucer and put in the freezer for a few minutes til set.

It’s almost good enough to make you think you’re eating chocolate candy.

These coconut flakes are definitely a treat. You can enter to win unsweetened coconut flakes too!
