Combine Medjool dates with bacon and chocolate for the ultimate sweet and savoury date bacon chocolate chip cookies.
Medjool date bacon and chocolate chip cookies, I bet you’re thinking that I’ve lost my mind, but let me tell you a bit about this recipe first. I’ve been working with Natural Delights to come up with a recipe using their medjool dates. Once I decided on something sweet (because you could also go savory with medjools) I knew I wanted to do a cookie, but the best part was coming up with flavor combinations to try out.
Chocolate + Bacon = delicious
Medjool dates + bacon = delicious
Chocolate + Medjool dates = delicious
So I thought that it would be fun to combine all of those flavours into a cookie. And voila, this incredible recipe for date bacon chocolate chip cookies!
While these cookies might not be the healthiest option out there, they make for a great special treat. Plus medjool dates do have a ton of health benefits as I mentioned in my Chocolate Banana Smoothie post, they are high in antioxidants but they also contain slow release sugars which means that you won’t have a big sugar high and then crash later on.
Another option for this cookie is instead of having the medjool dates on top of the cookie, you can chop them up and fold them into the cookie batter with the chocolate chips and bacon. I like to put them on the top, because if you eat the cookies when they are warm it’s as if the cookies have a sweet, caramel center.
