Flourless Mocha-Bacon Brownies

Nineteen years ago today my husband did the greatest thing - he proposed to me!  Thankfully, I was smart enough to say, "YES"!

In honor of our good choices, 19 years ago, I made my husband a batch of these to-die-for-brownies from Diane Sanfilippo's book Practical Paleo.  Now don't just copy the recipes from my blog.  Go out and buy the book yourself.  It is chock full of information along with great recipes like this one.

  • 2 tablespoons very strong coffee
  • 2 tablespoons fine coffee grounds
  • 2 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl combine chocolate, butter, maple syrup, and eggs.
  3. Slowly sift in the cocoa and mix to combine.
  4. Add coffee and coffee grounds and mix to combine.
  5. Spread into a parchment lined brownie pan.
