Make your own vegan Coconut Bacon at home with only 6 ingredients and in about 15 minutes. It stores well and it’s delicious in burgers and wraps.

Smoky Vegan Bacon made out of coconut chips

Did you know you can make an awesome plant-based bacon alternative out of coconut chips? Well, if you haven’t tried it yet – what are you waiting for? You only need 6 ingredients for these smoky ‘bacon’ chips and they can be made in only about 15 minutes.

Usually, I like to add these to burgers, wraps, and tacos, but I can never resist walking by the jar of coconut bacon and not having a few to snack. They are smoky (thanks to the liquid smoke), have a nice balance of sweet and salty thanks to the maple syrup, soy sauce, and salt.

This is what they look like before and after baking. Just keep a close eye on them, then you’ll be fine. Flip them around once or twice, so that they get crispy on all sides. You’ll be rewarded with delicious vegan coconut bacon in – almost – no time.

The vegan bacon can be stored in an air-tight jar at room temperature for at least a week without losing its crispiness. However, make sure you’re are letting the batch cool off completely before putting them in a jar.

I've only made coconut bacon once, but I can soooo relate to that can't resist grabbing a piece when you walk by feeling :D But I really love it on salads too! The salty + natural coconut sweetness is perfect together, and I didn't even have liquid smoke so I bet this version is even more delish and "real" tasting. Pass me a perfectly toasty piece please!

Oh, salads is a really good use too! My boyfriend and I just started (2 days ago) with making it a habit to eat more salad. So far it's going great, we are working on a couple of easy go-to dressings. Ever since I bought liquid smoke years ago, it's a staple in our household. It's great for smoky tomato sauces too. It adds such an authentic smoky aroma, it can fool many omnivores :D
