Paleo Bacon Brownies

Best Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free bacon browniesBacon in brownies? Have I LOST MY MIND?!?

Well, it’s not just any bacon, it’s smokey, maple baked bacon that’s chopped up into little salty-sweet morsels. Mmmmmmmmm

If you are a fan of bacon and also a fan of chocolate then this very well might be the most delicious thing you’ll ever eat. Seriously, it’s that amazing 🙂 Check out the video below where I’ll continue to talk you into this recipe, and then head to the kitchen to try it yourself 🙂

*Note: in the video I say “1/3 cup almond flour” but you’ll see it printed as 3/4 cup almond flour. It should be 3/4 cup almond flour.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place the bacon on the foil in a single layer. Combine the maple syrup (or honey) and Dijon in a small bowl and brush over the bacon. Bake for 20 minutes, or until fully cooked. Once cooled, chop the bacon into small pieces.
  2. Change the oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 brownie pan with coconut oil.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk the eggs. Add the vanilla and almond extracts. Add the raw honey, coconut oil and melted chocolate and mix well. Add the almond flour, chocolate chips and chopped bacon. Pour into the prepared baking pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until fully set. Cool before cutting into squares and store in the fridge. Enjoy!

    I love these recipes but absolutely cannot tolerate the taste of coconut oil. Would grapeseed oil be an acceptable substitute?

      Hi Betsy, I wouldn’t recommend grape seed oil in the brownies. Try palm shortening or butter instead of the coconut oil (however JSYK the coconut oil is not a detectable flavor – chocolate and bacon prevail!) Enjoy and Happy Cooking!

    I couldn’t really taste the bacon in these brownies but this may be because I used leftover bacon from a brunch, just chopped up. I skipped the maple syrup and mustard glazing which probably added some really nice depth. Next time I will try it this way or perhaps use more bacon. The texture was dense and nicely chewy.
