Bacon Bites

To look at facebook, twitter or the latest icecream flavours, it would seem that bacon is the new black. While many are trying to be humourous with their very vocal adoration of this fat and sodium laden carcinogen (and they call vegans pushy!), they lose sight of the fact that for many, it’s a very cruel reminder of how so many humans are able to dismiss the suffering of other intelligent animals. Decidedly not funny :(

Miss the taste but consider pigs your peeps?

Coconut Bacon

Ingredients
3 1/2 cups flaked coconut
2 tablespoons liquid smoke
1 tablespoon Braggs liquid aminos or soy sauce
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (optional)

Directions

Preheatoven to 325 degrees.
Combine liquid smoke, braggs, maple syrup, and water in a large mixing bowl. Pour in flaked coconut, using a wooden spoon to gently toss the coconut in the liquid mixture. Once the coconut is evenly coated, pour it onto a non-stick baking sheet and slide it the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, using a spatula to flip the 'bacon' about every 5 minutes so it cooks evenly. This stuff WILL burn if you're not keeping an eye on it and regularly flipping it, so please do. Coconut bacon can be stored in a sealed bag or container for up to a week, refrigerator optional.
Enjoy!


TRY: The Vegan Elvis sandwich: peanut butter, banana, and coconut bacon on whole wheat sourdough.
