1 Tablespoon liquid hickory smoke
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon crushed black pepper
Toss coconut flakes in a large bowl with liquid smoke and then sprinkle on dry seasonings. Spread out coconut into one even layer on cookie sheet (put parchment paper under it if you have it for easy clean up). Bake at 325 degrees F for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Watch carefully as it will go dark quickly! Allow to cool completely before serving for a true crackly crunch.
Store in pantry in air tight container for up to 3 days. Pairs beautifully with tofu scramble, salads and sandwiches. Superb! Now go make some!
