Keto Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Keto Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bacon chocolate chip cookies elevate a classic recipe with a savory twist. With crisp pieces of bacon mixed right into the cookie batter, these keto cookies are packed with salty-sweet flavor.

The batter (inspired by our original keto chocolate chip cookies) gets a boost from gut-friendly collagen peptides, plus healthy fats from grass-fed butter and rich dark chocolate.

Make this recipe whenever you find yourself with a little extra bacon left over from recipes like keto green beans with bacon, bacon-wrapped burgers, or keto breakfast tacos. You’ll save yourself the time spent waiting for your bacon to cool — otherwise, make the dough without the bacon, then chill fully before adding warm bacon pieces.

Serve bacon chocolate chip cookies with a cool glass of coconut milk, dip in classic Bulletproof Coffee, or enjoy with a delicious turmeric latte. Special thanks to the team at our Seattle South Lake Union cafe for sharing this recipe!

Prep30 minutes
Cook15 minutes
Servings16 Cookies


  • 2 cups almond flour finely ground
  • 3 Tbsp. Bulletproof Grass-Fed Ghee or grass-fed butter
  • 3 Tbsp. Bulletproof Unflavored Collagen Peptides
  • 2 Tbsp.  granulated non-GMO erythritol or birch xylitol  (add more, if desired)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. paleo-friendly baking powder
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips or chunks with at least 85% cacao
  • 4 slices cooked and cooled pastured bacon, diced finely or crumbled


  • Preheat oven to 340ºF.
  • Line two baking trays with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, add almond flour, collagen, sweetener and salt. Mix together, then add baking powder to the top.
  • Pour apple cider vinegar on top of the baking powder so it reacts (you’ll see it bubble and fizz).
  • Add ghee, vanilla and egg and mix thoroughly. Add chocolate and bacon pieces, and mix once more.
  • Roll the dough into balls and place on the lined baking trays.
  • Press the balls flat into cookie shapes. Press flatter for a crunchier cookie, and leave more rounded for a softer, chewier cookie.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden.
  • Remove trays from oven and gently place cookies on a wire rack to cool.
  • When cooled, store leftover bacon chocolate chip cookies in a covered container.
