Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love the Brittany Angell's website Real Sustenance, she recently made a maple bacon chocolate chunk cookie. I made it the other day and DELICIOUS!!! However almond flour is pricey(even grinding your own can be expensive) so since we dont need grain free,  I set out to make a version of my own. I am including both GF and non-GF versions...

3 (thick)slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

3 cups all purpose flour

1 cup brown rice flour
1 cup sorghum flour
2/3 cup potato starch
1/3 cup tapioca starch
2 tsp xanthan gum

1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp maple extract
1 egg
1/3 cup pure maple syrup*
1 cup chocolate chips

* if you dont have 100% pure maple syrup you can use 1/3 cup water and 1/4 tsp more maple extract and add 3 TB more white sugar

Cook and Crumble your bacon
Preheat oven to 350
Grease cookie sheets

Combine flour(or GF combo, sift well!)with soda and salt

In another bowl beat sugars with butter and maple extract

Beat in egg

Add in flour 1/2 cup at a time and alternate with syrup until well combined.

Add in chocolate chips and crumbled bacon.

Drop by rounded spoonful onto a lightly greased baking sheet

Bake 13-15 minutes until the centers are set, let stand 2 minutes before removing from the pan.

Makes 3 dozen

Try not to eat them all!

With the bacon, I would suggest storing in a sealed container in the fridge....if they last that long LOL
