Bacon Muffins

Everyone loves bacon.  Have you ever met anyone that doesn’t?  There are even entire Pinterest boards devoted to bacon, I even have one of my own. These muffins are moist and taste like bacon!  They would be great with any meal, and would be especially delicious under gravy.

Bacon Muffins

  • 4 whole eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour, Tropical Traditions brand**
  • 1/3 cup bacon grease, liquid state
  • 1-1/2 cup steamed cauliflower, pureed (about 1 small head of cauliflower)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup zucchini squash, peeled, shredded and squeezed (1 medium zucchini)
  • 4 slices thick bacon, fried and diced
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Steam cauliflower well above water level until fork tender – you don’t want the cauliflower to swim in the boiling water as it will absorb too much liquid and be too wet for the batter.  Remove and blend using a food processor, Magic Bullet or stick blender until pureed.

Peel the zucchini, and shred it. Measure one cup of the zucchini shreds, place in a cotton kitchen towel and squeeze the liquid out.

Dice the bacon into small squares.

Insert cupcake papers into muffin tin, or grease and flour using coconut flour.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

To a large mixing bowl add the four eggs, coconut flour, bacon grease, pureed cauliflower and salt.  Mix with a whisk or hand mixer for one minute until well blended.

Allow to sit one minute so that coconut flour can absorb the fluids.

Add bacon and zucchini into the batter, mix thoroughly with a spoon.

At the very end, add in the baking soda and mix just until it is well mixed into the batter.

Drop spoonfuls of batter into the muffin tins.

Bake 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

**Remember, if you have never ordered from Tropical Traditions before and order by clicking on any of my Tropical Traditions links, you will receive a free book on Virgin Coconut Oil, and I will receive a discount coupon for referring you. Thank you for thinking of me!

  • This looks incredibly delicious! I always think ‘sweet dessert’ when I think of muffins, but no one made that rule, haha. I think these would taste incredible next to sauteed greens for brunch on a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning. I can’t wait to try this when I can get my hands on some pastured bacon!!

    Hi Heba, they are very flavorful and even tasty when cold. I was curious if they would change once chilled. They taste a little different, but still very nice tasting. You’ll have to let me know if you try them. :-) ~Starlene
