Coconut Bacon

Makes a great topping for salads, veggie burgers, eggs-but my absolute favorite is to serve on sweet potato toast with a smear of peanut butter, bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup. Recipe courtesy of Minimalist Baker

Prep Time2 minsCook Time13 minsTotal Time15 mins
 2 cups Large flake unsweetened coconut
 1 tbsp Avocado oil (or another neutral oil)
 2 tbsp Tamarini

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (162 C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or more baking sheets if increasing batch size).
Add coconut flake, oil, tamari, paprika, maple syrup, liquid smoke, sea salt, and black pepper. Toss/stir to thoroughly coat.
Bake at 325 for 6 minutes, then stir and flip pan around. Bake for another 5-7 minutes, or until coconut bacon is crispy and golden brown. Watch carefully in the last minutes of cooking and be careful not to burn as it can go from brown to burnt very quickly.
Let cool for 10 minutes - it will continue crisping as it cools. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
