Baconscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Keto Recipes > Keto Dessert Recipes

The reaction I get out of people when I say the words chocolate and bacon together is absolutely priceless. They look so disgusted, but they’re in the dark on this one. Bacon and chocolate go together extremely well – the salty components playing off the sweet, boosting the flavor of the chocolate.

For this recipe we are using candied bacon. If you need to know how to make it, we have a how-to on candied bacon. You’ll also need to know how to make chocolate ganache. If you need, we have a how-to on making chocolate ganache.

We’ll also be using erythritol for this recipe. Lately I’ve decided to take the plunge and buy it. It’s absolutely fantastic. I was scared about the sugar alcohols, but I’ve been monitoring my blood sugars and ketone levels and they are barely affected by the erythritol.

I recommend Real Food NOW Erythritol – it’s made by a mom & pop shop, has a low glycemic impact, and is one of the cheaper brands.

The cookies? Well the cookies are absolutely divine. Unlike baking with Splenda, the cookies came out extremely soft and moist on the inside. Much better consistency, much like an actual cookie. The taste? Delicious to say the least. The saltiness of the bacon really riffs off of the sweetness of the eryhtritol and chocolate. A combination made in keto heaven!

12. Fold it in well, making sure you don’t break up the chocolate. I use these silicon spatulas, which are nonstick and also make for fantastic scrambled eggs.

13. Grab you candied bacon. We’ll be using 2 slices to go into the cookies. 1 piece will go in whole, just chop it up. The second piece, trim the fat off of the bacon and only use the meat.

19. Tear small pieces of the dough and roll them into balls. Place them on your baking sheet about 1 inch apart.

20. Use the palm of your hand to flatten the dough balls into cookies. I am using these silpats which make all baking non-stick friendly.

22. Chop your remaining candied bacon into small pieces.

I just want to point out that they save well. Just make sure you store them in an airtight container with wax paper between each layer.
