OMG Maple Bacon Bars with Coconut Flour

How To Make Maple Bacon Bars with Gluten-Free Ingredients

When it comes to dessert, we have a firm belief that the best recipes don’t hold back. After all, there’s no such thing as taking one bite of cake or eating 1/6 of a donut.

And if there’s anything you shouldn’t hold back on, it’s these oh-so savory sweet maple bacon bars. (See why below).

This exclamatory dessert comes in two tiers: A crumbly, buttery bottom layer that’s similar to shortbread — but is so much better — and made from a mix of gluten-free coconut flour, coconut oil, eggs and a bit of sea salt. And a top layer that tastes like the kind of stuff you wanted to sneak straight out of the jar as a kid (sans spoon), with crispy bacon, coconut sugar and maple syrup coming together to create a sticky-sweet topping.

You’ll put the whole thing in the oven for 25 minutes and when it’s done, make sure to let it cool. This gives the cookie layer a chance to firm up and the bacon-maple syrup flavors to meld together, creating something that tastes like a pancake cookie hybrid. Um, yum.

Tip: Dip into that bacon mix while you wait.
