Chocolate Bacon Brownies

Shockingly delicious bacon brownies that are totally Paleo and who would have thought.  So this dessert totally plays into my recent Pork kick.  I was going to just dip some bacon in chocolate but decided to do one better.  Here you end up with Chocolate Bacon Brownies which can easily be converted to a cake.  The process for this for me was a little long because instead of traditionally cooking the bacon, I baked it in 100% Pure Maple Syrup to try and really give it that sweetness to pair well with the saltiness of the Bacon.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I did, especially since I ate about 8 of them.

  1. George, I love your banana bread! That being said, you said these Chocolate Bacon Brownies could easily be made into a cake. How would you do that? I haven’t tried them yet but have the ingredients on my shopping list.

  2. Holy Batman, George! I stumbled upon your web this morning in an effort to find something Paleo. My bf has autoimmune issues and (he) decided we were going to change our eating habits. All good & well, except I’m a carb & chocolate addict. I am very happy to find A LOT of your recipes, but this one mainly! How sweet it will be this weekend to be munching on a (plate of) brownie, only to tell him ITS OK – George Said So! Seriously, though. You have saved me from awful cravings, and I am forever in your debt. :)

  3. Is there any substitute for almond butter ? Like can I just use normal butter for this recipe ? I can’t find almond butter here … Thanks in advance !
