Coconut bacon brownies

I saw a recipe for bacon cupcakes a couple weeks ago that looked amazing. I don't have any of the ingredients for cupcakes, do I decided to make semi-paleo bacon brownies.

1 c coconut oil
6 T ground coconut
1 T ground flax
1/4 t vanilla
1 packet stevia
1 T cocoa powder
1 T almond butter
2 eggs
Pinch of baking powder

Mix oil, coconut, cocoa powder, vanilla, stevia, almond butter and baking powder. Beat in eggs.

Layer half the batter in a greased pan.

Cook bacon

Add a layer of bacon on top of brownie batter.

Top with remaining brownie batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

I was content with the finished product. Next time I plan to use more almond butter and some dark chocolate chips. It was a little heavy on the bacon, so a thinner cut of bacon may work better.
