Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes
Yeilds: 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons low sodium tamari
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 cups coconut flakes/large flake coconut

Instructions

  • Whisk the tamari, oil, vinegar, syrup, and paprika in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add the coconut and mix it around until it's all evenly coated. Allow the coconut to sit for at least ten minutes, so that it soaks all of the marinade up.
  • Preheat the oven to 300F. Spread the coconut evenly over a foil or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes, stirring halfway through to prevent burning (check the bacon at the five minute mark, because it cooks up quickly). Let cool completely before serving.

Notes

Coconut bacon can be stored in an airtight container in cool, dark place for up to two weeks
