Try this recipe from Well Fed:

Caramelized Coconut Chips:
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Mix the salt and cinnamon with a fork and save for later.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat about 2 minutes.  Add the coconut flakes and distribute evenly so they form a single layer in the bottom of the pan.  Stir frequently.  They will crisp and brown quickly – take off when desired crispiness is achieved.  Then sprinkle with the cinnamon and salt and enjoy!

Sauteed Spinach:
1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2-1cup spinach
1 clove garlic
pinch sea salt

Melt the coconut oil in a pan with the garlic.  Add the spinach and stir until soft and wilted.  Sprinkle sea salt and enjoy!
