Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat for easy toasting. You can also use parchment paper or just put the coconut straight on the pan. Spread out the coconut over the baking sheet in an even layer. It can be thin or thick, it does not matter. If it is thicker, it will require more mixing as it bakes to toast evenly. I found that one bag of shredded coconut covered a large baking sheet about 1/2″ deep.
