How To Make oatmeal bacon chocolate chip cookies

  • 1
    Lets start off with making the candied bacon first. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • 2
    Have a dish with the brown sugar in it, place the strips of bacon in the dish and mix around to get it nicely coated.
  • 3
    Take the 2 Tbsp of dark molasses and drizzle it on the bacon in the dish and then proceed in mixing the bacon around
  • 4
    Place bacon on cooking rack that you would have over a cooky sheet. Cook for 30 minutes.
  • 5
    Sit the bacon strips on a brown paper bag to soak up an excess grease. Once desired grease is off, place on parchment paper and place in fridge.
  • 6
    Now the Oatmeal chocolate chip cooky mix. Preheat oven to 350°F. For me, I use old style dark cooky sheets so I set mine to 325°F.
  • 7
    In large bowl, stir brown sugar and butter until blended.
  • 8
    Stir in vanilla and egg until light and creamy.
  • 9
    Stir in oats, flour, baking soda and salt; stir in chocolate chips
  • 10
    Cut up the cooled candied bacon strips into small pieces. Place into bowl, and stir until well blended.
  • 11
    On parchment covered cooky sheet, drop dollops of dough about 2 inches apart.
  • 12
    Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Let the cookies sit for a couple of minutes to cool some, then remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
