recipe by whisking life away

16 ounces honey roasted peanuts
1 tsp coconut oil
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
4 slices bacon, cooked
sea salt

preheat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet.  to make the peanut butter, place the honey roasted peanuts and coconut oil in a food processor. pulse until the peanuts reach a smooth consistency and the mixture looks like peanut butter. this makes about 1½ cups of peanut butter. you can use already made peanut butter if you want!    in the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the homemade peanut butter, light brown sugar, eggs and cinnamon. beat the mixture until it’s well combined.  add the bacon to the bowl and mix until it’s incorporated.  using a ice cream scoop, place balls on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart from each other. coat a fork with non-stick spray and make a crisscross indentation on each cookie. sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on top of each cookie.  bake cookies for 10 minutes and enjoy!

  1. They look delish! Hopefully you kept some of the homemade peanut butter to eat with a spoon;)

  2. Yum! Bacon in peanut butter cookies! And the peanut butter is home made too?! Great!

    Yum. Peanut butter and bacon, why have I not tried this before? Since these don’t use flour or oats, what type of consistency do they have? Soft? Crunchy?

    I am sure that if I look up the word decadence in the dictonary it will have a picture of this fabulous creation next to it. Amazing!

  5. Oh my lord…I don’t even want to know the calories on these things. Sometimes ignorance is bliss when it comes to cooking :)
