Coconut bacon.


I picked up a bag of Let's Do...Organic large flaked coconut the other day. The bag was under $5 and I used half of it, saving the other half, just in case I buggered this up. Well, I didn't, and that part rules, so I baked up the second batch and am pumped to share the recipe. It's easy to get carried away snacking on these.. when it rains, it pours, y'know.

Ingredients

Large flaked coconut - preferably "Let's Do...Organic"

3 tbsp pure maple syrup

1 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

2 tbsp LITE Kikkoman Soy Sauce

1 1/2 tbsp liquid smoke

2 tbsp sesame oil

Cracked black pepper

Rock salt, to taste

Preheat oven to 300F.

Combine marinade in a bowl, stir well, and add coconut. Let sit for about 10 minutes.

Scoop coconut evenly onto a well greased cookie sheet, separating as best you can.

Bake for 5 minutes, flip with a spatula, bake for 5 more minutes. Flip one last time and bake for a 5 minutes longer if needed. Be careful, it burns pretty easily. Pick out the noticeably gnarly bits as you flip.

Transfer to a big plate and let cool for at least 5 minutes.

Use on pizza, BLTs, salads, quiche, tofu scramble, etc. This stores well in a bag, in the fridge for about one week.
