I start with a bag of shredded coconut (you can use fresh if you like) and then get a baking sheet ready. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Place the shredded coconut on the pan being sure to scatter it loosely. You donít want to leave clumps in it because it will prevent parts of it from drying. Place the pan in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes.

Check the coconut often. When it is completely dry, it will be brittle to touch. Take it out of the oven and put the baked coconut into a bowl. Depending on what your recipe calls for, you may have to grind your dried coconut or use a food processor to get the texture you need. Happy cooking!
