You guys already know that I love coconut. I've been a coconut addict enthusiast for as long as I can remember. Even when I was a kid, before the days of coconut oil / milk / flour everything, I still loved coconut. It was one of my favorite flavors.

I use coconut in some form daily in my life. Whether it's a dab of coconut oil for my cooking or a dollop of coconut milk or cream in my tea or famous herbal coffee, coconut finds its way into my mouth at least once (but often more) a day.

This winter, I have been doing a major purge in our house. I am ready to clear out the clutter and downsize our living. We don't even have that big of a house, but I feel like we are filled to the brim with stuff.

I'm tired of the stuff and am ready to live a lot more simply.

Stuff, stuff, stuff, and more stuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuffffffff….

This purge has been happening in every room of our home, including my kitchen. I recently wrote about the 11 Must Have Kitchen Tools For Every Real Food Kitchen. I wrote that post after a big clean out of my kitchen where I took time to really evaluate all the stuff I had and see what I truly wanted to keep and what I could sell or donate.

Purging is SO freeing!

I still have about half the house to do, but I already feel so much lighter. I personally am finding that having less stuff is a blessing! It forces you to focus on what's really important in life.

By the way, have you read that book called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up? I'd love to know what you think? I haven't read it, but every time I look in my social media feeds, there is at least one post about how awesome it is. Will it really teach me anything I don't already know about getting rid of stuff? Leave me a comment below. Would love to hear your thoughts! If you want to check the book out, you can find it on Amazon here. You can probably find it at the library too, but last time I checked mine, I was going to be like the 759th person in the queue to get it…. so yeah…

So, anyway, I was purging the kitchen and shoved in the back of my pantry was a big bag of raw coconut chips. I always keep these on hand for adding to things like salads, yogurt, homemade granola, etc. Somehow I had lost track of this bag and it needed to be used. Coconut chips are the really big flakes of coconut that you can get, not the small shreds.

I decided to make one of my all-time favorite treats, candied coconut chips. I typically buy these at the store whenever I want a little something special, but this time I decided to save some money and make them myself. Plus, I have been craving a lot of cinnamon this fall and I knew immediately that I wanted to use cinnamon on these chips for a warm, sweet flavor.

The result was incredible. The best coconut chips I've eaten…and I've eaten a lot. 🙂 Let's dive into the recipe!

P.S. If you want to skip making your own, the Dang brand is the one I love. Find them on Amazon here.
