How to Make Oatmeal Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step-by-Step

  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.
