Yes, you read it right. You don’t need to miss bacon anymore, just veganize it and indulge yourself.


Plant-based meals, recipes, and foods with vegan stamps are virtually everywhere. But if you think you’ve got to go to the supermarket to buy the ingredients you need to make some of your favorite vegan dishes, think again.

Banana and carrots bacon version took over TikTok, and all you need is marinade “bacon” and air fryer or the oven— it’s that easy!


What made carrot and banana bacon a hit on social media wasn’t because it’s darn easy to make. Also, it’s sooo delicious. It doesn’t require fancy or expensive ingredients or Masterchef skills.

We know. Most new plant-based eaters and non-vegans are probably thinking, “yeah, it might be that good, but carrot will never taste like bacon,” and you’re absolutely right.


This isn’t the goal here. By the way, this isn’t the goal of any other meat-like vegan dish. A misconception that many people believe, that we plant-based eaters want to mimic a meat dish, to be exactly the same as the real thing.


Bacon, ham, ribs, or whatever processed meat you think of — any vegan dish is the same. What we want to do is to make a healthy veggie dish taste good in many ways.

So before you say it’s impossible to associate banana or carrots with bacon, just think of the health benefits you’ll gain from eating them.


Carrots are a good source of several vitamins and minerals, especially biotin, potassium, vitamins A (from beta carotene), K1 (phylloquinone), and B6.⁠

Banana is an excellent source of magnesium, source of fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and various antioxidants and phytonutrients. It’s good for weight loss and reduces blood pressure.


Whether or not you follow a plant-based, vegetarian, or vegan diet, these carrot and banana bacon recipes will be sure to hit the spot. So, with no further ado, here are the recipes.

Carrot Bacon Recipe

The secret here is to layer the sliced carrots in a marinade for at least 10 minutes. If you have spare time, go for 30 minutes. Then place in the air fryer for 5 to 8 minutes or pop them in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

Banana Bacon Recipe

Don’t discard your banana peels just yet! Instead, give this recipe a try. With only these required ingredients — bananas and an oven or air fryer — allow your bananas to soak in a marinade for a few minutes, and they’re good to go in the oven.
