  • 1 baking sheet
  • 1 Oven


  • 1 cup large coconut flakes see note
  • 2 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (176C) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Whisk the liquid smoke and maple syrup until fully combined.
  • Toss the coconut in the liquid smoke mixture until the flakes are fully coated. They should be light brown in color.
  • Spread evenly on the baking sheet and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Keep a close eye on the bacon to avoid burning. Flip the bacon at 5 minutes.


  • Do not use shredded or sweetened coconut for this recipe or it won't turn out.
  • Use large flake unsweetened coconut. Shredded coconut is too fine in texture and sweetened will ruin the taste. 
  • Make sure that the coconut flakes are fully coated in the liquid smoke mixture. We use our hands to toss to make sure the top pieces of coconut are covered. 
  • Watch the coconut carefully while it's baking. Every oven is calibrated differently, so it may take less time to bake, and we don't want your bacon to burn. 
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. 
  • Freeze in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before serving.
