Coconut Bacon

Coconut Bacon

-+*Yes, you read that right. Coconut Bacon. I know what you’re thinking: “Wait, whaaaaaaat?!” I thought the same thing when I first started seeing this stuff pop up in vegan and vegetarian recipes.

What rules about these muffins is they taste so almondy. They’re healthy enough to eat for breakfast, yet delicious enough to eat for dessert. And if you’ve…Continue Reading
