Flourless Caramel Bacon Brownies

Alex and I are big fans of combining sweet and savory flavours. It’s hard to go wrong when chocolate and bacon come together in a yummy brownie. Throw in caramel and this dessert is ridiculously good!

Here’s the caramel and bacon soaking up each other’s flavours:

When you bite into these brownies, the texture is quite surprisingly moist as you wouldn’t know there isn’t any flour in them. The bacon bites are a welcome surprise as they add another texture to the brownie as well as a smoky flavour.

Enjoy pigging out on these brownies. Get it? Pig out…on bacon… I know what you’re thinking, we should just stick to baking
