Remember Cheez-its? I do. Those little golden squares with the ever-so-satisfying crunch and slightly greasy, flaky exterior … and according to the box, made with “real cheddar”!
It’s been a long while since I’ve encountered a Cheez-it. But by accident, I made something that tastes just like them. My original intent was to make a sort of sea salt and vinegar chip with coconut flakes. Lo and behold, this simple combination – toasted in the oven for 10 minutes – makes a crunchy snack that tastes just like Cheez-its. Someone else try doing this and tell me if I’ve gone crazy!
1 cup coconut flakes/chips
1 Tbsp White Vinegar
Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Toss coconut flakes and vinegar together in a bowl until flakes are coated. Add a coating of salt and stir to coat.
Spread the flakes out in a thin layer on the parchment-coated baking sheet. Pop in the oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring once or twice.
Let cool for a few minutes before eating to ensure they’re extra crunchy!
