This coconut bacon is a great addition to salads, sandwiches, soups...even desserts! But don't let me fool you-this stuff is addictive. You'll get to the point where you'll barely be able to walk by a bag without grabbing a handful of the stuff...or is that just me? This coconut bacon recipe is super easy to make, and a great way to teach non-vegans that we make damn good food too! All you need is coconut, liquid smoke, maple syrup, and liquid aminos!

Ingredients You Need for Coconut Bacon [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

  • 3 1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoon liquid aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)

How to Prepare Coconut Bacon [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Combine liquid smoke, liquid aminos, maple syrup, and water in a large mixing bowl. Pour in flaked coconut, using a wooden spoon to gently toss the coconut in the liquid mixture. If adding smoked paprika, add and toss to coat evenly. Once the coconut is evenly coated, pour it onto a non-stick baking sheet and slide in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, using a spatula to flip the 'bacon' about every 5 minutes so it cooks evenly. This stuff WILL burn if you're not keeping an eye on it and regularly flipping it, so please do. Coconut bacon can be stored in a sealed bag or container for up to a month, refrigerator optional.

  1. This recipe is awful because it neither so much as opines on a liquid smoke nor demands light nonstick sheets/pans. It neither gives a smell for oven doneness nor provides legit cross-linking for the coconut to toughen.

    I\’m torn between \’wrap it in nutted kale that was good for crisping\’ and \’prep as standoff on bright pans to roasting turnip at 400 deg. F.\’ Better in July 2017, please!

  2. Hello, I tried this recipe and there is something missing. The taste was fine but it remained just as crumbly as the coconut. Did you forget the liquid or the binder ( flaxseed etc…) ? We just put some on the cheese before adding the egg to our sandwich. I guess I will put the rest on yogurt.
