What to do with huge amount of flaked coconut?

I ordered it from Fresh Direct and didn't realize how big the bag was. I don't bake, so I'm not quite sure what to do with it all.

  1. I just added lime and coconut to my plain Fage yogurt. It was really yummy.

    You could make macaroons, oatmeal cookies with coconut, carrot cake, coconut cake, add to thai curry, mix in chocolate pudding, coconut cream pie...........

    1. Learn to make a freakin' huge macaroon!
      I think they're somewhat easy to make...and yummy!

      1. Confetti?

        I have this problem - have 3.5 qts. of it and am only going through about two tbsps/month.

        1. One of my favorite things to eat at my desk at work is to open up a package of Tuna with Panang Sauce from Trader Joes into a large cup and put about 2 handfuls of flaked coconut in the dish. I let it soften for about 3 minutes and maybe add some pumpkin seeds. The coconut acts like noodles and is very delicious and I think pretty healthy.

            sounds delish (I really like that panang curry) but seems like it would be pretty high in calories and fat - you should check the nutrition info on that coconut.

          2. Trust me when I say that you don't have to be a baker to make these macaroons. They are incredibly easy and most importantly, delicious. They also freeze really well.
