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.
- 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
- Preheat oven to 350.
- 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!
- 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.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges become golden brown.
Servings: 12-15 cookies
