Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

FullSizeRender (40).jpg

I've officially crossed over to the dark side. Because apparently only dark twisted human beings do things like put bacon in a cookie. No regrets. This was a ridiculous concotion and pleased the whole crowd (ok...so it may have been a "whole crowd" of 3...but they were so good they didn't even last long enough to offer to other people).

I fully intend to make these again. If not for the amazing flavor, for the reaction I get. It's quite entertaining for me to introduce a "bacon chocolate chip cookie" to an unsuspecting taste tester, see their eyes widen and look at me like I'm on the pipe, take a bite, then look at me again like they could hug the life out of me. No hyperbole...they're THAT good. Ok, maybe a little hyperbole...no one squeezed the life out of me. But they DID eat all da cookies, lick their fingers and ask me where I was keeping all the extras. 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp full fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3 strips bacon, fully cooked and cut into small pieces

Method 

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, folding in chocolate chips and bacon pieces last. The dough will be thick, but kind of wet/oily from the coconut products. This is ok!
  3. Spoon tbsp sized dollops of dough across a parchment-lined baking sheet. Press down slightly on the cookie dough balls with the back of a fork so they are slightly flattened. Be gentle as to avoid the dough crumbling apart.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges become golden brown.

Servings: 12-15 cookies
