Low Carb Cheesy Bacon Bites
My husband and older kids love my Keto/Low Carb Sausage Ball Puffs. Recently, when they requested that I make a batch for breakfast, I was out of breakfast sausage so I thought I’d try matching a batch with crispy bacon instead. I wasn’t sure just how crispy the bacon would stay in the batter, but I was hopeful, so I gave it a try. The Low Carb Cheesy Bacon Bites turned out delicious with a crispy outside and a cheesy bacon-y (is that even a word) inside, which is the perfect combination for a delicious breakfast. I know that many people get tired of plain eggs when following a Keto or Low Carb lifestyle, so these Low Carb Cheesy Bacon Bites are a fabulous alternative and they freeze and reheat well.

These Low Carb Cheesy Bacon Bites freeze and rewarm nicely. While many just pop them in the microwave, I have found that they are best reheated in the air fryer or in the oven wrapped in aluminum foil.
- 1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 4 1/2 tbsp melted butter, cooled
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1 oz cream cheese, softened
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and cover cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Combine melted butter (I cool mine by popping the bowl in the fridge for a few minutes), eggs, salt, and softened cream cheese then whisk together.
Add coconut flour and baking powder to the mixture and stir until combined.
Add crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese then stir until mixed well.
Cool batter in the fridge for 20 minutes then drop batter by tightly packed spoonfuls or a small cookie scoop on parchment paper on cookie sheet. I made 40.
Bake for 14-16 minutes or until tops are slightly brown.
Allow to cool slightly on paper towels.
