INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Make the Sweet Black Pepper Bacon
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lie bacon out on baking rack with a cookie sheet beneath it to catch the fat.
  • Sprinkle bacon evenly with Swerve Brown Sugar and Coarsely Ground Black Pepper.
  • Bake in oven until bacon is slightly crispy.
  • Once bacon is cooled, chop into bite-sized pieces.
  • Make the Keto Cheese Puffs
  • Place the almond flour, Swerve Brown Sugar, Eggs, Cheese, baking powder, and bacon in mixing bowl.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of dough on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I use a small cookie scoop that equals about a tablespoon. You should get 16 cheese puffs.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until puffs have started to turn golden brown and are no longer wet on top.
  • Serve immediately.
  • If storing puffs, store in airtight container in refrigerator up to 1 week.
