Coconut Snowflakes


Coconut snowflakes.1 small whole wheat tortilla

1 teaspoon unsweetened coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Soften the tortilla in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds.
  3. Fold the tortilla into fourths. Use clean scissors to cut shapes in the tortilla, the same way you would cut a paper snowflake.
  4. Unfold the tortilla and place on a cookie sheet.
  5. Lightly brush the oil on the top of the snowflake and sprinkle with cinnamon and coconut.
  6. Bake for 4 minutes or until the coconut turns golden brown.
