A wise comedian once said,
Jim Gaffigan knows what’s up. Bacon can truly improve just about anything, and we all now how mouthwatering it is on it’s own.
But, as everyone knows, bacon is pretty darn terrible for you. So if you still crave that smoky, crispy goodness without the excessive fat and salt, you HAVE to try coconut bacon!
I first saw this recipe from Cookie + Kate on Pinterest and intrigued, I immediately purchased all the ingredients. And now that I’ve had the immense pleasure of using this coconut bacon for a couple of weeks, I’m a believer.
See this blog post for the full recipe and directions. I bought my coconut flakes and liquid smoke and Vitacost, and I already had the maple syrup and soy sauce in my pantry.
I made the full batch, which yields 3 cups of bacon. Luckily, you can easily keep your coconut bacon in the freezer for a few months and take it out as needed!
But good luck not eating it all the first week 🙂
I’ve used my bacon on everything from pancakes to salads. It never disappoints.
This recipe is a keeper! I can’t wait to try it on and in new foods. Does it taste exactly like bacon? Of course not. But does it come close? You bet.
Would you try coconut bacon?
