Coconut Bacon
Coconut flakes baked with a mix of seasonings turn into crispy, smoky goodness, reminiscent of bacon. An easy way to get your vegan "bacon" fix.
  • 1 cup large flaked unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ tablespoon sweetener of your choice — such as honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • ½ teaspoon coarse black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Coat the coconut with the rest of the ingredients. Spread on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove. Stir. Pop back in the oven and continue baking until it’s browned and crisp, 5-10 more minutes. Keep an eye at this point, because it could easily burn.
  4. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
