  • 4 slices white bread
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter

Coconut Bacon

  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teapoon liquid smoke
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut chips

Quick Strawberry Chia Jam

  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon chia seeds


Coconut Bacon

  • Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • Combine coconut oil, soy sauce, maple syrup, liquid smoke and salt in a bowl. Whisk together. Then add the coconut chips and mix until they're coated with the mixture.
  • Transfer the coconut chips to a baking tray lined with parchment paper and lay flat.
  • Bake them in the oven for about 10-15 minutes keeping a close eye on them and flipping them once or twice.
  • Once they are golden and crispy, they're done. 

Strawberry Chia Jam

  • Heat the frozen strawberries in a small pot, add the maple syrup and let them cook on medium heat until soft.
  • Mash them with a fork, add the chia seeds and give it a quick mix. Take the pot off the stove and let it sit for about half an hour to thicken.

The sandwich

  • Spread peanut butter (about 1 tablespoon) on one side of the bread slices. Spread the strawberry jam (about 1 1/2 tablespoons) on the second bread slice. Sprinkle the coconut bacon (about 1 tablespoon) on top. Press the bread slices together and grill them on a contact grill or grilling pan until brown on both sides. Sprinkle with more coconut bacon and enjoy!
