Coconut fakin' bacon is a wondrous substitute that's easy and cheap to make at home.
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
In a mixing bowl, whisk low-sodium soy sauce or tamari, liquid smoke, maple syrup, and smoked paprika together. You can adjust any of the measurements to make it smokier, saltier, or sweeter. It might just be a matter of preference for some people.
Add the flaked coconut into the mixture and lightly toss with a spoon to coat evenly.
Spread out evenly onto a baking sheet (or 2) heavily greased with coconut oil or lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20 minutes but toss the mixture on the sheet every 5 minutes. Make sure you set the timer so you don't forget and burn the whole batch (which I may have done before!).
