These large cookies are a variation of another recipe of mine that were my new obsession. CLICK HERE!  These are for bacon lovers only! They didn't last more than 2 that's the only problem!  These cookies are high in protein.  One cookie has as much protein as one egg!   I love the sweet and savory combination.  

1 large egg
1 cup sugar-free peanut butter, OR (250 mL)
  almond butter
1/cup granulated Natural Mate® (sucralose/erythritol or stevia/erythritol )(60 mL)
  {can use 3 tbsp (35 mL)}*  OR use your own preferred sweetener to equal about 1/2 cup sweetness!
  with Natural Mate, you use half the amount!}
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
1/tsp baking soda (2 mL)
3 slices bacon cooked, chopped (4 oz; 113 g)
  (not too crisp)
1/cup cup sugar-free chocolate chips (75 mL)
1 extra slice bacon, cooked, chopped (for garnish)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). 

In food processor, process egg.  Add peanut butter, Natural Mate®, OR your own sweetener, vanilla extract and baking soda; process.  Stir in bacon bits and chocolate chips.  Using a 2-tbsp (30 mL) cookie scoop (it is like TWO cookies in one!), drop 14 cookies onto a greased cookie sheet.  The cookies will be in the shape of large mounds.  Bake about 10 minutes.  Do not overcook.  They will look a bit under done, but not to worry, as they will firm up as they cool. 

Gently stick little pieces of the remaining bacon in the tops of the the cookies. Leave them to cool completely on the cookie sheet.  Refrigerate for the best texture and chill completely before serving.

Helpful Hints: *Natural Mate® sweetener is a combination of erythritol and sucralose or erythritol and stevia.  This product is great-tasting and perfect for baking. In the warm cookies these had a cooling effect from the erythritol in the sweetener, however, once chilled in the refrigerator, that effect was quite masked and not a problem for me.  If desired reduce the sweetener by 1 tbsp (15 mL).
