As many of you have noticed from my Instagram videos (@alyshoomnutrition) I’ve been eating lots of coconut bacon lately! It’s the perfect salad topper –delicious, nutritious, and adds some texture. You can also use the coconut bacon in sandwiches, wraps, and so much more. Get creative! Here’s the recipe for you, enjoy!

Ingredients:
3 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
3 Tablespoons reduced sodium tamari
2 ½ Tablespoons liquid smoke (any flavor)
1 ½ Tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350F
2. In a bowl combine coconut flakes, tamari, liquid smoke and maple syrup. Stir to combine.
3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread flakes on the parchment paper and bake on middle rack for 12-14 minutes. Flip a few times throughout.
4. Once ‘bacon’ is ready it will be dry and have golden brown edges. If it’s still a little soft and you prefer it crispy keep it in the oven another couple minutes.
5. Let cool and enjoy!

*Tip: These stay good for a couple weeks on the counter in a glass jar or you can freeze them and they’ll stay good for a few months -no need to defrost!
