Low Carb Maple Bacon Cookies Recipe

Finally a cookie recipe for all the bacon fans out there! This is a sugar free cookie with hints of bacon flavor just for you. To compliment the bacon, I’ve added a keto approved maple syrup. Maple and bacon pair so well together. That’s why they are a popular breakfast duo.

This cookie is also dairy free! In this recipe, the bacon grease not only provides flavor but it serves as the fat in the cookie too so we can get away with not using butter. Whether you are looking for a new keto Christmas cookie to bake or just want to have bacon for dessert too, this maple bacon cookie recipe is one to try.

How to Store Bacon Grease?

Start saving your bacon grease if you want to make these cookies! Or just make a bunch of bacon for breakfast and you should be good to go for making up a batch later in the day.

Be sure to strain your bacon grease through a fine mesh strainer to get all the cooked bacon bits out after frying the bacon. Store bacon fat in a stainless steel container or glass jar. Bacon grease will stay fresh in the refrigerator for about six months as long as all the meat has been removed. You can also freeze bacon grease.

Bacon grease can be stored at room temperature; however, it will go rancid faster. I keep the bacon grease in a dark, tightly sealed container and strain the bacon bits out too if you decide to store at room temperature.

I use a strainer and pour the bacon grease into a small glass mason jar. Or you can use a container specifically designed for storing bacon. This one is made out of stainless steel to keep light and heat from causing the fat to go rancid.

If you notice an unpleasant odor coming from your bacon grease, it has gone bad and should be thrown out.

Keto Maple Syrup

With the popularity of the keto diet, more and more companies are coming out with keto products. There are many different keto approved maple syrups available; however, the sugar free maple syrup by ChocZero is my favorite. This low carb syrup is sugar alcohol free as well. So you don’t have to worry about any uncomfortable side effects from using the syrup. And it tastes amazing and provides tremendous flavor! I love baking with ChocZero syrups.

Food Processor

In this low carb cookie recipe, I use a food processor to combine the cookie dough together. The food processor I recommend is by Cuisinart or this one by Breville. If you don’t have a food processor, you an electric mixer to combine the ingredients.
