Coconut Fakon Recipe

I’ve seen a variety of recipes for coconut bacon online, so today I tried fixing some myself.  It came out pretty yummy, I must say!  Sorry for the slightly blurry image.


4 cups of  unsweetened coconut (large flakes work best)
2  tablespoons liquid smoke
4 tablespoons Bragg’s amino (or soy sauce)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons water

Preheat oven to 300*  Put flakes in a large bowl and add remaining ingredients.  Toss to coat coconut (be gentle so you don’t break it up).  Spread in a thin layer on a baking sheet.  Bake for 25-30 minutes (keep an eye on it and remove once crisp, but before it burns).  Allow to cool some before use.  It can be refrigerated, but you may wish to place back into the oven for a few minutes before use to crisp it up again.

Enjoy with no bacon guilt!
