Instructions

To Prepare Coconut Bacon:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (180 degrees C, or gas mark 4), and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. 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.

  3. 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:

  1. Lay out the 8 pieces of bread, and spread roughly 2 teasp of vegan mayo on one side of each slice. 

  2. 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.

  3. Top with the remaining slices of bread. Serve, or wrap up for your lunch box!

Recipe Notes

Coconut Bacon - The recipe yields 1 cup of coconut bacon.

 

Recipe Variations - I used spinach leaves instead of lettuce. I also used multi-grain bread and toasted the bread, allowed it to cool before preparing the sandwich.
