These paleo bacon brownies are flourless and they're made with almond butter, cocoa powder, and dark chocolate! They're refined sugar free and combine the best of both worlds into one treat- sweet and salty!
Preheat oven to 350℉. Line an 8x8 pan with parchment and spray with cooking spray.
Heat a nonstick skillet to medium high heat. Cook the bacon until crispy. Reserve two teaspoons of the bacon fat for the brownies. Set aside. Set the bacon on paper towels to drain.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until combined. Set aside.
In another medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and coconut sugar until combined. Add the almond butter, bacon fat, coconut oil, and vanilla and whisk until combined.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Add batter to pan and smooth out with a rubber spatula. Chop bacon into small pieces, sprinkle on top, and bake for 18-20 minutes or until center is set and edges are golden.
Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until melted. Mine took about 1 minute. Drizzle on brownies and set aside until completely cooled. These brownies are delicate when warm. Once cooled, slice and devour!
