Coconut Bacon

Whoever invented  these incredible little smokey/savoury pieces of heaven is a genius!  It is VERY yummy and easy to make.  There are a lot of different versions of Coconut Bacon online, and after sifting through them all, I decided to tackle this one at Vegan Good Things (great site!).  I liked the ratio of ingredients, and the advice about baking at a lower temperature, which I thought made a lot of sense.  Don’t be fooled by the name – it is not bacon!  It just resembles some properties of that breakfast staple, without all the heart clogging properties – yay!


3 large handfuls of large flake, unsweetened coconut
1 Tbsp. liquid smoke
2 Tbsp. tamari
1 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. maple syrup


Preheat oven to 300F. Place coconut in a shallow baking pan (I lined 2 baking sheets with parchment paper to assure there would be no sticking). Combine other ingredients together in a small bowl and drizzle over coconut. Use your hands to mix and make sure the coconut is evenly coated. Bake at 300 for 20 minutes, or until crisp, checking every 5-10 minutes. It will continue to crisp as it cools, and is best eaten at room temperature.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week.

    This is life changing! I made borscht and sprinkled it on top with coconut yoghurt (with apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and celery seed) and fresh herbs. So good!
