  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • Brown the bacon in a skillet and reserve drippings.
  • Wash the liver and slice into thin (¼ to ½ inch) slices.
  • Rinse well and pat dry.
  • In a medium size bowl, mix together the coconut flour, salt, garlic powder, and pepper.
  • Grease the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish with the bacon drippings.
  • Dredge the liver slices in the coconut flour mixture and place in the baking dish.
  • Thinly slice the onions into rings and layer on top of the liver slices.
  • Cut butter in to small pats and place over sliced onions.
  • Add the water to the pan to keep all moisture from cooking off.
  • Place the pan in the oven and cook at least 30-40 minutes or until well cooked and onions are soft. It may take up to an hour depending on the thickness of the liver slices.
  • While the liver is cooking, crumble or cut the bacon into little pieces.
  • Remove the liver from the oven, sprinkle with bacon pieces, and enjoy!


If desired, you can sprinkle the onions with additional spices before adding the butter.
