Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies. Yes, They're Good!

Quick update time!
Peanut Butter Bacon cookies are d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s.
Yep, they are.
I had a hankering to bake, and a need to practice a little escapism this weekend.
As usual I turned to bloggy-friends (and strangers) to provide a little inspiration.
Miss Makes Alot sent me on my merry way towards
Shutterbean, where I encountered the amazingness that happens when
peanut butter meets bacon.

Sounds a little strange but I promise the flavor is anything but.
It is pure peanut-buttery goodness. I am thinking of adding them to my fall baking rotation.
If I just call them something more marketable.
Like Yum Yum Oinkers. (Some people just can't get past the truth that there is meat in there lol)
But if you need some points of persuasion this recipe has a few.
1. They only take about 10 minutes to cook
2. They are gluten free! (no flour yay!)
3.  There is only about 5 ingredients in them. Cheap Cheap Cheap.
Anywhoo check them out. And thanks to all the people who share such great recipes and ideas for me to test out!

Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies @ Shutterbean

Print This Recipe (Recipe via JoytheBaker who adapted from The Gourmet Cookbook)
  • 1 cup all-natural chunky or smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • about 6 slices of bacon, cooked, cooled and diced
In a skillet over medium high heat, fry up bacon until cooked through and let cool on paper towels until cool enough to dice. Dice up and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment & set aside. In a mixer combine peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add egg and baking soda and mix for another 2 minutes. Fold in cooked bacon. Roll into large walnut sized balls and create a cris-cross pattern with a fork. If you’d like, roll the dough balls in granulated sugar before making the cris-cross pattern. Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a baking sheet for five minutes, then transfer to… your mouth.

Yum Yum's hilarious but utterly genius. I bet it would sell like hotcakes. Peanut butter in salt bread is my super fave! Thanks for sharing this recipe by the way.

These look like they'd be delicious. I've had a chocolate bar with bacon in it and it was surprisingly delicious, so I have a feeling these are going to be amazing especially since I love peanut butter. :) Thanks for sharing.

I'd try that. Haha. But is there even a noticeable presence of bacon, like is there any point? If it's noticeable and compliments the PB i'd definitely try it :D
