  • Place coconut flakes in medium sized bowl
  • Pour the sauce over the coconut and gently stir or toss until they are completely coated.
  • Spread the coconut evenly on the cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Stir the coconut flakes after baking 6 minutes. When coconut bacon is done, let cool before serving.
