  • Gluten-free
    (if you use tamari instead of soy sauce)

Coconut Bacon (Vegan) Ingredients:

  • Coconut flakes 
  • Vegetable oil 
  • Soy sauce (or tamari if gluten-free)
  • Liquid smoke 
  • Maple syrup 

How To Make Coconut Bacon:

  1. Mix together the liquid ingredents into a sauce.
  2. Add unsweetened coconut shreds into sauce and mix until well coated.
  3. Roast in the oven. 

That’s it! How simple is that?

  • Adding it as a topping to roasted veggies
  • Adding it into vegan mac & cheese
  • Mixing with some vegan mayo and making a vegan BLT 

Without further ado, here’s the full recipe with mesurements!

    Doing keto diet and looking for vegan Keto recipes and friend mentioned coconut bacon so I found this one and made it. It’s super tasty and easy to make. I sprinkle some on my avocado toast, salads and whatever I have for dinner
