I have been wanting to try using coconut as a bacon replacement in a BLT for a while. Usually people use shaved coconut. I only had shredded, but I gave it a whirl anyways. I was very pleased with the results. The coconut took on the sweet and smoky flavor from the marinade, and had a great texture in the wrap. Give it a shot.
Estimated Cost Per Serving: $.95
- 1 1/2 Cups of Shredded Coconut
- 3 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup
- 2 Teaspoons of Liquid Smoke
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Smoked Paprika
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Onion Powder
- 1 Head of Romaine

Pre heat oven to 350f.
Mix syrup, liquid smoke, paprika, garlic, and onion in a medium sized bowl.
Place coconut shreds into the syrup mixture and stir until all the coconut is covered.
Place cocounut onto a non stick cookie sheet. Spread evenly on the sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the coconut is dry. Keep an eye on it though so it does not burn!

Remove coconut from oven.
Place about 1/4 of coconut on to a tortilla and top with lettuce, avocado, and tomato.
