  • 2 cookie sheets
  • oven


  • 1-1/2 cups applesauce homemade or store bought, organic
  • 1 cup bacon chopped pieces, from about 7 pieces cooked bacon
  • 1 cup green onions diced
  • 1 cup apple diced
  • 1 cup cassava flour use Otto's for reliability and quality
  • 1 cup coconut butter , warmed slightly, so it's runny
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup collagen see discount code in Recipe Notes
  • 1/2 cup bacon fat , use the bacon fat that renders from the bacon in this recipe, and then, if needed, just add a bit more of any fat of choice like coconut, lard or avocado, to get the full 1/2 cup needed for this recipe
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons gelatin
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda , sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Line one large or two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In large bowl whisk to combine the following dry ingredients: cassava flour, coconut flour, collagen, gelatin, baking soda and sea salt. Set aside.
  • In medium bowl combine the following wet ingredients and coconut sugar: applesauce, coconut butter, bacon fat, coconut sugar and apple cider vinegar.
  • Add wet ingredients to large bowl of dry ingredients. Top with diced/chopped ingredients: bacon pieces, diced apple and green onions.
  • Fold together well without over-mixing.
  • Use a cookie scoop (see link in Recipe Notes) to portion cookies onto prepared cookie sheet. The dough can almost touch between each cookie; they'll spread very little.
  • Bake in preheated oven 25 to 30 minutes, until bottoms are golden-brown and tops are tinged with golden brown in places.
  • They will be pretty soft while hot but will set up more and be very cookie-like in texture once cooled. Store cookies in fridge, and warm slightly before eating if desired.
