Vegan bacon and seed chocolate bark and smoky nuts
Busy times call for simple recipes. Today have two that are related. I have had my eye on a Vegan salted dark chocolate bacon bark. It uses a commercial coconut bacon. I sometimes make my own coconut bacon. But this morning I wanted to experiment with roasting smoky nuts and coconut bacon. Suddenly I had the light bulb moment and realised I didn't have to make coconut bacon. It was already made.
Smoky and spicy nut, sesame, and coconut ‘bacon’ bar nuts at Oh She Glows recently. Angela make amazing recipes and yet I was still swooning at the brilliance of combining smoky nuts and coconut bacon. I first made the smoky nuts on the weekend for a party. I used a variety of nuts - almonds, pecans, hazelnuts and walnuts - because I didn't have the cashews and coconut flakes. It was overcooked and I had to discard the darkest nuts. Yet they seemed quite popular. Only Sylvia wasn't keen because they were too spicy for her.
