Smoky Coconut Flakes w Dukkah

Smokey Coconut Flakes w Dukkah
A quick snack or an awesome sprinkle for so many dishes! No fats, no gluten, no added salt either. You can experiment with the flavours; try different Dukkah's, vary the amounts of both liquid smoke and Dukkah and add different spices :-) If you are longing for a smoky flavour in a sandwich, then this will do very nicely too.
Cuisine: vegan
Recipe type: snack or sprinkle
Prep time: 
Cook/wait time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • 2 cups of coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp liquid smoke
  • 1 tbsp Tamari
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp organic liquid sweetener (coconut nectar, agave syrup, maple etc)
  • 2 tbsp or more of a Dukkah that you like
To do
  1. place flakes in a wide bowl, mix the fluids, pour over the coconut flakes and mix the whole lot
  2. heat the oven to 150C (in the meantime the flakes can soak)
  3. place baking paper/sheet on an oven tray, and spread the flakes on it
  4. bake for 5 minutes, check, stir through and bake for 5 more (once out of the oven, the flakes will crisp up, so no need to leave them in the oven any longer - they will probably burn)
Notes
Keep an eye on the colour, don't walk away to do something else, as these are done in a jiffy!

This recipe can be made in the oven too (in that case, it'll be ready in 10-15 minutes, the flakes will be a little crispier than the dehydrated version), but of course then it won't be raw. Both versions taste lovely though!

  • 3 hands of coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp liquid smoke (yes, table spoon)
  • 2 tbsp Tamari

  2. in a bowl, mix the liquids
  3. mix in the flakes and mix well
  4. transfer to oven tray
  5. bake for about 15 minutes, but keep a good eye on it, as all ovens are different. Once I went to stir the flakes and they were done already. They should have a crispness to them, with a chewiness as well. They do get a bit crispier once out of the oven.
  6. add salt to taste
