I tried out Shredded Coconut from Tropical Traditions. It is cut very small so it can be added easily to certain recipes. I used it to make granola bars and they were excellent! I used this Granola Bar recipe. Only instead of raisins I used chocolate chips..lol And then I added ...maybe a cup of shredded coconut. We are coconut lovers here. :) I also use almonds instead of walnuts. Those changes make this the best granola bar recipe that I've made! I just hate making them too often because I eat WAY too much.
The Shredded Coconut is NOT sweetened. It is organic and free of additives, and no sulfites are used to keep them white. Tropical Traditions has some great recipes including: macaroons :) I think I'll try that next. Search for Shredded Coconut to find more recipes!
Also the coconuts from the Philippines were grown with no fertilizers or pesticides! Tropical Traditions sells a 1 gallon re-sealable pail for $17.50. That holds 3.5 lbs! That's a lot of macaroons..lol
Tropical Traditions is giving away 3.5 lbs of non-sweetened Shredded Coconut!
