Bacon Chocolate Muffins

Servings 16
  • 200 grams bacon (about 12 strips)
  • 100 grams dark chocolate
  • 225 grams coconut flour
  • 50 grams almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 50 grams cocoa powder
  • 200 grams creme fraiche
  • 2 eggs
  • 50 milliliters espresso
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 125 milliliters olive oil
  • 500 milliliters water
  • Frosting
  • 175 grams dark chocolate
  • .33 cups coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 200 grams cream cheese
  1. Preheat the over to 200*C.

  2. Cook the bacon until it's crispy and drain on some paper towel.

  3. Melt the dark chocolate. Crumble about 8 slices of the bacon onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and pour the chocolate over the top. Leave this to solidify while you do the rest.

  4. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

  5. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, creme fraiche, espresso, honey, olive oil. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix as well as you can. This will be difficult! Add the water, about 500ml to make the mixture more liquidy. The coconut flour sucks up the moisture.

  6. Chop up the now hardened bacon-chocolate into 'chocolate chips' and stir these into the mixture.

  7. Your batter will not be so liquidy, but rather like cookie dough. In fact, you could probably skip the muffin tin all together and just plop them on some non-stick paper and bake them. But this recipe is for muffins!

  8. Fill your MUFFIN PAPER LINED muffin tray. You can probably get around 16-18 muffins out of this mixture.

  9. Bake for about half an hour at 200*C until a toothpick comes out more or less clean.

  10. Leave to cool while you make the frosting.

  11. Frosting
  12. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together then add the vanilla and coffee granules. Stick it all in a bowl in the fridge to cool for about half an hour.

  13. After half an hour, using a hand beater, blend up the mixture and add the cream cream.

  14. Spread on now cooled muffins and garnish with a piece of the remaining bacon.
