I know what your thinking. “Has she gone completely insane??” Well, it’s highly possible. But I gotta tell you, these cookies are fantastic! Chocolate and bacon is a very under appreciated combination but these Gluten Free Maple Bacon & Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect mix of salty and sweet.

 

Gluten Free Maple Bacon & Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

Putting bacon into sweet things has become quite trendy, and you’ll find a number of bacon cookie recipes out there. I even saw one that calls for using 1/2 cup of bacon grease in the cookie, that seems like a little too much bacon for me, but what do I know?

You really should try these. I promise they do not taste like pork. There is just enough of the bacon to add a really pleasant salty, rich flavour to help balance out the sweetness of the cookies. I did not add salt to the cookie dough as there is just enough saltiness that comes from the bacon.
