Keto Bacon & Onion Cookies


Step 1 If you need to crisp up the bacon, preheat the oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F (fan assisted), or 210 °C/ 410 °F (conventional). Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Lay the bacon slices on top of it and place in the oven. Cook for 10-15 minutes until crispy brown. When done, remove from the oven and set aside. Reduce the temperature to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional).

Step 2 Meanwhile, place all the dry ingredients into a bowl (almond flour, flax meal, psyllium husk powder, onion powder, salt and pepper) and mix until well combined.

Step 3 If you don’t have onion powder, you can use dried onion flakes and blend them until powdered. Also, make sure you don’t use whole psyllium husks - blend the psyllium husks until powdered if needed.

Step 4 Add the egg and mix well using your hands. Crumble or slice the bacon and add to the dough. Mix well using your hands. Reserve the bacon fat and use for other recipes.

Step 5 Using your hand, create 12 equal balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone cookie sheet.

Step 6 Use a fork to press and flatten the dough. Transfer into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on the cookies. Almond flour gets burnt easily and the cookies would taste bitter. When done, the cookies should be golden brown. Store at room temperature covered with a kitchen towel or in a container for up to a week.
