This is for veg people and omnivores alike! So many people tell me they could never be a vegetarian because they cannot deprive themselves of bacon. Well we love bacon too! We don't want to deprive ourselves either! And who is our little knight in shining armor? Well it's not the highly processed, packaged fake bacon that looks more like a dog treat! Oh no no no. It's coconut bacon! It can be made into bacon bits with shredded coconut or bacon strips with large coconut flakes. This perfect combination of sweet, salty, and smokey will make you salivate. Did I mention there are only 4 ingredients? This is the simplest RV kitchen recipe you're going to get. Insanely excellent on a BLT by the way. Now go forth, and eat some bacon.

Easy, Gluten Free, Kid Friendly, Salads, Toppings, Vegan, Oil free*
1 cup unsweetened coconut (flakes or shredded)
1/8 cup tamari
1 tbsp maple sugar or 100% real maple syrup
1 tbsp liquid smoke
Preheat oven to 300º. In a bowl, stir well to combine all ingredients. Spread into a thin layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 10-20 minutes, stirring it up every 5 minutes or so, until dry and crispy. Allow to cool.
*You can also make this in a nonstick pan over medium heat, instead of the oven. It may take a little dash of olive oil to get it crispy. Sauté about 10 minutes, stirring often.
