Bacon Chocolate “Pig Chow”

Bacon Chocolate Pig Chow

Bacon Chocolate Pig Chow

Yep. You read that right.

Pig Chow. You know, like Puppy Chow.

But with bacon.

And without the gluten, soy, 5-syllable-chemical junk.

Something a little more Paleo-friendly than Puppy Chow, which we all know and love.

This way, you can go a little more … piggy.

Oink, oink!  🙂




  • cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 3 cups nuts/seeds (I used a combo of almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, and sunflower seeds)
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil / bacon grease
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup nut butter (I used almond butter)
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 cup powdered sweetener (I use Swerve)
  • extra powered baking cocoa, if desired


  1. If you’d like to roast the nuts/seeds first, heat oven to 350 and roast for 5-7 minutes on a parchment-lined baking pan. Remove from pan to stop them from continuing to roast after baking.
  2. Melt the coconut oil, cocoa powder over low heat.
  3. Stir in almond butter and vanilla.
  4. Toss all nuts together a large bowl.
  5. Pour chocolate mixture over nuts and stir to coat. Let cool slightly.
  6. Put powder sugar substitute in a gallon-sized plastic bag. 
  7. Spoon chocolate-nut mixture into bag.
  8. Shake it up!
  9. Add additional cocoa/sweetener, to taste.

  1. Wow – this looks really good!

    I did something similar, though didn’t think to add the bacon. I did pecans, soaked in coconut oil for a day, then coated in cocoa powder until the oil was all absorbed.
    Now I’m definitely trying this with bacon!!

  2. Oh hello, this sounds amazing!!!

    I am so glad that you stopped by my blog – as I have had a really hard time finding other interesting blogs on this topic! Most of the LCHF blogs I have come across are in Swedish, so its fun to branch out! Love your blog, love the name of the blog – in fact I just love bacon! 🙂

  4. I am going to have to try this. While everything made with bacon is usually better, the local candy store that sell chocolate covered bacon sucks! They don’t cook the bacon enough which makes it rubbery.

    • oh gosh. what a way to ruin a great thing! rubbery bacon 😦
      (i mean … i’d prolly still eat it…but…)

      we want that crispy, crunchy chocolate-bacon perfection yum!!

Leave Some Bacon Love!
