Dark Chocolate Bacon Peanut Butter Cookies 

Dark Chocolate Bacon Peanut Butter Cookies 

Betsy’s healthy dark chocolate bacon peanut butter cookies are a real treat. Ok, so the words bacon and healthy are not always used in the same sentence, but we thought this recipe was so different we just had to try it. We swapped turkey bacon instead of regular bacon to cut back on the fat. This sweet and salty cookie is a fun one to make and will have friends and family going back for more!

Recipe Ingredients:

1 Cup Betsy’s Best Cinnamon Peanut Butter

1/2 C white sugar

1/2 C brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp sea salt

7 slices turkey bacon, cooked candied and diced

1/2 C dark chocolate chips

1/4 C maple syrup

Step By Step Dark Chocolate Bacon Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe Directions:

Step 1: Candy the bacon.  When the bacon is 3/4 done add 1/3 c maple syrup and continue to cook until crispy. Reserve.

Step 2:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat Betsy’s Best, sugars, and egg until combined. Add baking soda and salt and mix until smooth. Add chocolate and candied bacon. Form into balls and roll in sugar if desired. Arrange on cooking sheet and bake 8-10 min.

Step 3: Because this is a sweet and salty treat be mindful to watch your portions. You can easily cut back on the sugar to 1/4 c of each the brown and white to reduce the sugar content if you wish. This will leave you with a rich peanut butter and bacon flavor with half the sugar!

Step 4: Enjoy your dark chocolate bacon peanut butter cookies.!

And that is that! A pretty healthy peanut butter cookie that includes yummy dark chocolate and bacon.  It’s really delicious.
