Baby B's Coconut Crisps

A new single ingredient recipe--- coconut and more coconut!

Baby B's Coconut Crisps (or Puffs!)

½ cup - 1 cup finely chopped coconut flakes
½ cup coconut flour
¼ cup coconut oil or manna (softened to texture of spreadable butter)
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
1 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp coconut vinegar
4 Tbsp coconut milk
2 Tbsp water



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium bowl, begin to blend dry ingredients (I used a pastry blender). Slowly work in the oil/manna until coarse crumbs begin to form. Add in vanilla (if desired), milk and water. Blend well. Add in vinegar and let rest for five minutes (see how it fizzes!!!). Knead dough briefly to ensure all ingredients are mixed well. Either roll into tiny balls (i.e. the size of Kix) and place on parchment lined baking sheet OR make crackers with directions as follows. With puffs, bake 8 minutes at 375 F or until nicely browned. Cool and enjoy!!!

Crackers:
Spread dough (will seem more like crumbs) on a parchment lined cutting board. Place another sheet of parchment paper over top of the dough. Using a rolling pin, roll dough flat, about 1/8- ¼ inch thick. Cut into squares with very sharp knife (dough will be very dry and break easily). With a thin metal server (or fork would probably work too) lift cut crackers unto parchment lined cookie sheet. Separate slightly. Bake for 8 minutes in a 375 F oven or until crackers are dry and the edges are brown. Cool and enjoy! These will be soft and not too hard for a young toddler to eat!

  1. My daughter takes very small pieces of this, followed by water. I actually might use this more as a cereal with milk. I personally just tried it as a short cake replacement with strawberries and milk--yum!!!
