Although I have made a lot of different types of vegan bacon, vegan coconut bacon is my all-time favorite. Not only is vegan coconut bacon easy to make, but the taste and texture are also clearly the closest taste to the real thing according to my family.
Again, let me stress how simple it is. With four ingredients and 20 minutes, you have the perfect topping for potatoes, pizza, sandwiches, salads, and mac and cheese.
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED FOR EVGAN COCONUT BACON?
First, you need to find the core ingredient, unsweetened coconut chips. If you have a Trader Joes in your area, or any Kroger Store (Frys on the west coast). Often, I order my coconut chips online, because sometimes I can only locate flakes, which do not work as well for this recipe.
NOTE: COCONUT CHIPS (BELOW) MAKE BETTER VEGAN COCONUT BACON
THE FOUR INGREDIENTS TO MAKE MAGICAL VEGAN COCONUT BACON
- Unsweetened coconut chips
- Maple Syrup
- Tamari or Soy Sauce
- Liquid Smoke
Not only is vegan coconut bacon easy to make, but it also keeps fresh for 7 days in the refrigerator and can be reheated in the microwave.
WHAT DOES VEGAN COCONUT BACON GO WELL WITH?

Another great way to use coconut bacon is inside a chickpea omelette.
And, one of my favorite ways to use bacon is in my Vegan Broccoli Salad with Coconut Bacon
