We’re never opposed to simply popping open a bag of Coconut Chips and eating them by the handful, but there are plenty of ways to get creative in the kitchen with our versatile flavors. From slightly sweet Chips at breakfast to a keto-friendly, plant-based savory topping in noodle bowls, here are our 10 favorite ways Dang fans enjoy Coconut Chips, from day to night:

Sure you can drink a smoothie on the go, but a study has shown you enjoy food more when you’re seated. That’s why we love smoothie bowls (pictured above), which pack the same benefits into a satisfying sit-down meal. Choose your base flavor (think acai or greens blended with almond milk) then add your toppings. We like a mix of bee pollen, chia seeds, goji berries, and our Caramel Sea Salt Coconut Chips to balance the sweetness.

But we get it—sometimes mornings are hectic. Overnight oats save time in the a.m. by doing the (easy!) prep at night. Registered dietician Jessica Bippen likes to soak rolled oats in cashew milk with yogurt, vanilla, cinnamon, and chia seeds. In the morning, just add some Coconut Chips, fruit, and any other fixings.

Store-bought granola can be packed with sugar and other fillers. But when you DIY, you can mix-and-match ingredients, like oats with Coconut Chips, dried fruit, cinnamon, and maple syrup for some naturally occurring sweetness.

Ditch that deskside peanut butter and jelly and embrace a more flavorful lunch. Coconut chips are great on salads, whether you’re going with greens and raw veggies or taking an Asian-inspired turn with rice, grilled chicken or tofu, veggies, and peanut sauce.

We never say no to pizza, even when we’re swapping watermelon in place of the dough. This watermelon "pizza" is as simple as it is satisfying—juicy triangles of melon topped with ricotta, cream cheese, and honey, plus fruit, mint, and Coconut Chips.

Like we said, Coconut Chips make for a tasty snack straight from the bag. We like packing it for hikes and picnics, but they’re just as handy for those 3 p.m. hunger pangs in the office. Keep a stash at your desk and thank us later.

With summer temps rising, sometimes the last thing we want to do is turn on the oven. Spring rolls are an easy, impressive dish for parties, and pair well with our Lightly Salted Coconut Chips.

Sprinkles may have been your go-to as a kid, but they don’t add much nutrition. Instead, try topping your ice cream or sorbet with our Chocolate Sea Salt Coconut Chips, infused with cocoa powder. You’ll get sweet and salty with each bite!
