Ingredients
  

  • 200 g unsweetened coconut flakes generous 3 cups
  • 3 Tbsp low sodium tamari or coconut aminos
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp hickory liquid smoke

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F). Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until the coconut is completely coated. This step is easier if you use your hands (and satisfyingly messy!).
  • Spread the coconut bacon on the lined oven tray in an even layer, and place in the oven.
  • Bake for about 14-20 minutes, until deep golden brown, turning once or twice during the baking process, to prevent sticking and clumping. Be careful not to crush the coconut as you turn.
  • Let cool completely - the bacon will firm on cooling.
  • Store airtight at room temperature for up to 1 month. If the coconut bacon becomes soft, return it to the oven to crisp it up again.

Notes

The longer you can keep the bacon in the oven the crispier it will get - but be careful not to leave it in too long, it can burn very quickly!
