Peaches & Coconut Bacon in a BLT Sandwich?
I love a good sandwich! Especially if it’s flavorful, easy and quick to make, and gives me another delicious meal later that week. Because you all know I’m not a huge fan of spending tons of time making lunch for myself during the weekdays.
Let’s talk coconut bacon for a second. I love the idea of it, but most store-bought versions I’ve tried makes me hate it. I’ve had plans to try making it at home since I’d heard it was fairly easy but had yet to try. And then Jackie’s cookbook landed at my door.
Just by looking at the ingredients alone, I knew I’d love her coconut bacon and instantly doubled the recipe! I’m glad I did otherwise I’d be left with nothing for the sandwich since I polished off half of it right out of the oven.
And if you’re looking at the ingredients thinking you don’t have liquid smoke or any idea what it is, don’t worry about it. Most stores carry it. So find it, buy it, and use it in this recipe. I’m sure you can leave it out, but I personally love that added smokey flavor.
Really that’s it! Mix a few ingredients together to make the coconut bacon, place it in the oven, and sit back and relax!
When it’s done, sandwich it in between some toasted bread layered with vegan mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, and sliced peaches. Then try to stuff more coconut bacon inside since that stuff is so good!
Store the leftovers for a later meal or two. If you’re on the go, prep the sandwich ahead of time and simply wrap it up.
Also… peaches? Who thought the combination of peaches into a BLT sandwich with coconut bacon would be so delicious?! Try out this quick and easy mouth-watering BLT sandwich recipe below.
Vegan Coconut BLT Sandwich with Peaches
- 8 slices sourdough bread , or gluten-free if necessary
- 5 tbsp vegan mayo , soy-free if necessary
- 8 leaves green leaf lettuce
- 8 slices tomato , large
- 1 cup peaches , sliced
- 3/4 cup Coonut Bacon , ingredients below
- 1/8 teasp freshly ground black pepper
For the Coconut Bacon:
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 4 teasp pure maple syrup
- 2 teasp liquid smoke
- 3/4 teasp salt
- 1/2 teasp onion powder
- 1/2 teasp garlic powder
- 1/4 teasp smoked paprika
- 1/8 teasp black pepper
To Prepare Coconut Bacon:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (180 degrees C, or gas mark 4), and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, place all the ingredients for the Coconut Bacon. Toss the mixture until everything is evenly coated, then spread it out in a single layer over the parchment paper.
- Bake for 5 minutes, stir the bacon around, and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until the coconut bacon is amber brown. If not using right away, store in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. Let it reach room temperature once you take it out to use it. While baking, continue to the next steps.
To Prepare BLT Sandwich:
- Lay out the 8 pieces of bread, and spread roughly 2 teasp of vegan mayo on one side of each slice.
- Layer 2 leaves of lettuce, 2 slices of tomato, 1/4 cup peach slices, 3 tbsp Coconut Bacon, and a pinch of black pepper on 4 of the slices.
- Top with the remaining slices of bread. Serve, or wrap up for your lunch box!
I absolutely love this sandwich! It is the perfect summer sandwich and i love the addition of the peaches.
Your photography looks great!
I love homemade whole grain bread toasted with nut butter for a great meal on the go.
I have never had fruit in a sandwich. And never heard about coconut Bacon. Interesting. I am not a fan of maple syrup or sugar due to weight loss goals. Guess that maple syrup is to give than bacon like taste right? Anyway this certainly looks delicious especially after looking at the top down photo.
My favorite on the go snack is nuts… any kind!!!
And it’s nice to have a green smoothie to sip on throughout the day!!
Yesss! me too! mac nuts, pecans, and walnuts! I love sparkling water throughout the day, but green smoothie is my snack go-to!
I keep trying to subscribe to emails, but cannot seem to get it to work . I filled out the box, but never got a confirmation. As for food on the go, fruit is my usual choice.

This looks like the perfect sandwich.
Well-Done to Jackie, this looks like a winner 🙂
I usually just bring fruit for on the go foods.
I never thought of using peaches in a BLT… What a clever idea! It has just been added to my weekend menu! Yum!!
You’ll LOVE it! The peach and coconut bacon combo is to die for. I’ve been having it all week!
One of my favorites are vegan marinara farro with roasted broccoli and chickpeas.
My favorite plant based meal is probably some sort of avocado toast!! That sandwich looks like a yummy heartier version of lots of good plant based flavor!
