Coconut Bacon

This coconut bacon from Fettle Vegan is so delicious, you could eat it by the handful! But, recipe contributor Amber assures us it also makes a fabulous BLT.

Thanks for the recipe and photo, Fettle Vegan!


3 1/2 cups flaked coconut, unsweetened

2 tablespoons liquid smoke

1 tablespoon Braggs liquid aminos or soy sauce

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon water

1 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Combine liquid smoke, braggs, 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 it 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.
