Learn how to toast coconut the easiest way, yielding crispy crunchy coconut with delicious toasted coconut flavor!




  1. Add coconut to a skillet set over medium heat.
  2. Stir and flip every minute or so, checking to ensure that the coconut doesn’t burn. Smaller pieces will toast quickly; so stir the smaller bits to the outer edge of the pan and shift the large bits into the center, where the pan is hottest. This will take 3-5 minutes.
  3. When most of the coconut is golden brown at the edges, remove the skillet from heat. Stir again and allow coconut to cook just a bit more using the residual heat for about 1 minute.
  4. Pour coconut on a plate or sheet to cool completely. Enjoy. Storing instructions below.
