Coconut Bacon - Whole Food Plant Based

Author Molly Patrick of Clean Food Dirty Girl


  • 3 cups coconut flakes 140g
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce 30ml
  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke 30ml
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup 15ml


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F(177°C)
  2. Place the coconut flakes in a mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate smaller mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, liquid smoke and maple syrup and pour over the coconut.
  4. With your hands, gently massage the liquid into the coconut so that all of the coconut is covered.
  5. Place the coconut in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 6 minutes.
  6. Take it out of the oven, flip bacon over with a spatula (as best you can) and bake for an additional 7 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container. Sprinkle on salads, make a killer BLT, or wait until next week when I give you my Garlicky Mushroom Green Beans with Coconut Bacon recipe!
