BACON CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

I'm really excited to share this recipe and guest post from Bob, the blogger and owner of Not So Fast Food. He's got some incredible recipes, but he was generous enough to share this epic one with me. He also has a Paleo food truck, which is pretty awesome. I think I need to plan a trip down to San Diego to try it out. Anyone want to come along? Here's a little message from Bob before he shares this delicious recipe with us: Did I say Bacon, Chocolate Chip Cookies?!?!?! You betta believe it! I mean...what's not to love here? I combined two of everyone's favorites! BACON & Chocolate Chip Cookies. The craze of the past few years has been the combination of Bacon & Chocolate and I get why! It's FREAKING delicious!!!!!! One dilemma I have on my Primal lifestyle is my sweet tooth.....I absolutely love chocolate. Gummi Bears are my other kryptonite, but, I don't have them very often anymore. Chocolate though, I can't get enough of a delicious piece of dark chocolate, especially with Coconut. Better get ready for A LOT of Chocolate desserts on this Blog. The baking time for the cookies will depend on the size you make them. I aim for a good sized tablespoon of dough!

NOTE: I know you can't see the Bacon chunks in the picture of the cookies, but, don't fret..you'll get that BACON-Y awesomeness once you dig in! Also, if you choose to make a HUGE mistake and not use bacon in this dish, the cookies will just be ...delicious and not RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS.
