Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut Review & Giveaway!

 

image

It’s time for another review and giveaway from Tropical Traditions! This month I choose Organic Dried Coconut. My family loves coconut, well, except Sloan, but she’s just picky. The rest of us love coconut. Tropical Traditions has several varieties of coconut, shredded, coconut flakes and coconut chips.

                               image

Tropical Traditions 100% natural Shredded Coconut, Coconut Flakes, and Coconut Chips are made from organic dried coconuts in the Philippines that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, our dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white. They are a great addition to recipes and baking, or just for snacks! Note: The Shredded Coconut is a very small cut, suitable for baking, such as making macaroons. The Coconut Flakes are a larger shredded coconut cut, perfect for garnishing or toppings, such as the top of a coconut cream pie. The Coconut Chips are a much larger cut that can be used as a snack food. You can mix them with nuts and dried fruit, for example.

I found a recipe at Tropical Traditions for Double Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were an instant hit with the coconut fans. Sloan ate one and said it was ok. I will be making these yummy cookies again!

P4080169

Double Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/4 cup  butter, room temperature

1/2 cup virgin coconut oil

3/4 cup organic sugar

3/4 cup Turbinado or whole sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

12oz semisweet chocolate chips

2 cups self rising flour

1 1/2 cups shredded coconut

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the butter and coconut oil in a mixer. Add the sugars, eggs and vanilla with the butter and coconut oil until combined. Mix in the flour and coconut just until combined. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Place on a cookie sheet with a cookie scoop or 2 spoons. Bake cookies until just light golden brown on the bottom for a nice soft cookie, or a little longer if you like a more crispy cookie 10-12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a plate for cooling.

I subscribe to TT e-mail newsletters and I am friends on facebook with them. I would love to try some of the shredded coconut. I also Love and item in your favorite things picture. The big cookie jar in the back. My Grandmom Clancy had one of them and she kept it full of homemade chocolate chip cookies for us grandkids. They were the BEST! Just seeing that brought back lots of memories. Thanks. Maria
