  • We love schnitzels and this looks good, will have to try this recipe as I haven’t use desiccated coconut before.


  • Your chicken schnitzel looks delicious,must try this one for sure!


  • It sounds odd but something I think I’d give a try as part of my bread crumbs mix thanks


  • Have to admit, I’ve never considered adding coconut to the breadcrumbs for a schnitzel. Not sure how it would go down here


  • Although coconut is not my favourite flavour my boys would love this


  • I made these last night, was going to make ‘normal’ schnitzels and thought I would give this a go instead. SOOOOOOO delicious.

    • So glad that you enjoyed it! It’ s one of my favorite coatings for a schnitzel


  • Yum! This looks and sounds amazing. We would love this I think. Must give it a go.


  • Coconut crumbles are lovely, I add some gluten free breadcrumbs and often use it to give broccoli and cauliflower a crumble coating and then deep fry it. My kids love it


  • Yum ! Great variation on a theme !


  • Thank you for this version. Love the idea of coconut in the crumbs.
