Easy Coconut Bacon
This Easy Coconut Bacon is the vegan (and gluten-free) alternative to "real bacon"! Made with coconut flakes, soy sauce, liquid smoke, and maple syrup, this recipe is so easy and ready in just 15 minutes!
Servings: 16 tablespoons
- 1 cup large unsweetened flaked coconut (not regular shredded coconut!)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce or gluten free alternative
- 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup not pancake syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Whisk together soy sauce, liquid smoke, and maple syrup.
Toss flaked coconut and sauce together and place onto prepared baking sheet.
Make sure the coconut is in a thin layer.
Bake for 6-12 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Remove from the oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes, so the "bacon" can dry out and crisp up a bit!
