Keto Chocolate-Covered Bacon Recipe

February 12th, 2019

What are keto dessert dreams made of? How about bacon—dipped in chocolate. This sweet and savory pairing is made with pantry ingredients you probably keep handy. A touch of coconut oil helps the chocolate harden; then it’s ready to decorate with all your favorite crunchy toppings (we’re partial to nuts like almonds and pistachios). Serve it as the dessert course at your next keto-themed dinner party to really wow your guests.

Keto Chocolate-Covered Bacon

Yield: 12 slices
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


For the bacon:
1 pound (12 slices) Thrive Market Sugar-Free Pastured Bacon
½ bag (4 ½ ounces) stevia-sweetened chocolate chips
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

For the toppings:
Thrive Market Organic Shredded Coconut
Thrive Market Organic Raw Almonds, roasted and chopped
Thrive Market Organic Roasted and Salted Pistachios, shelled and chopped
Flaky sea salt


Preheat oven to 425°F and line a sheet tray with parchment paper. Arrange bacon strips flat on tray and roast until crisp, about 15 to 20 minutes. Let the bacon cool while you prep the chocolate.

Make a double boiler by filling a small saucepan with 2 inches of water and place a heatproof bowl over the top. Add chocolate and coconut oil; stir until chocolate melts.

Place bacon strips on a wire rack and spread a layer of chocolate over the top using a small spatula. Sprinkle with assorted toppings before the chocolate sets. Don’t expect too many leftovers, but if you do have some extra, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
