Low Carb Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies

8 ratings

Everything is better with bacon! These yummy cookies are easy to make and very satisfying. Use your favorite granulated sugar substitute. I recommend one that’s a blend of a few different types to get a better texture. Since the cookies are already brown from the peanut butter, you won’t notice a Lot of browning while the cookies are baking, but 12-14 minutes in the oven is the perfect time to firm them up. As much as you’ll want to eat them right when they come out of the oven, hang tight as they cool off and firm up.

    Can these be baked in a solar oven? How long?

      I have been making PB & bacon cookies for a few years. If you like sweet, salty, smoky & spicy then add a pinch of Aleppo pepper - excellent!

        Added 1 serving Lilly’s milk chocolate chips. No bacon. Reminded me of Cocoa Wheats flavor which I liked.

          These are sooooo good. I kept them in the refrigerator (yuck!), so I decided to reheat them in the air fryer. They tasted fresh out of the oven all week!!!!

            Has anyone tried this with almond butter instead of PB?

              That’s what I used...they were amazing!

            I doubled the recipe and made them without bacon but added about 1/4 cup of almond flour for a better consistency, a little vanilla and a tablespoon more of Swerve, and added a pinch of course salt over all. It was fantastic and soft in the middle.

              Very good. I made it with crunchy PB, and also added cinnamon and desiccated coconut👌👌. PS: no bacon.

                I can only give this recipe 3 stars because I'm very confused by the bacon... To me it doesn't belong. I like the flavor of the cookie but next time I won't add the bacon. The bacon adds a very weird texture to the cookies.

                  Can I use monk fruit to sweeten? If so how much?

                        Can you use Stevie in this instead of the swerve sugar?

                          I made these this morning using Swerve and they were not super sweet. I am making these for a cookie swap with non keto folks so I might sub some of the swerve for stevia on my next batch to get it sweeter. It’s an easy recipe and I would give it a try with stevia

                          You can try stevia, but will want to start out with less since stevia is typically more sweet. Due to using less sweetener, the consistency of these cookies may also be a little different. Let us know if you try it!

                            It’s pretty good but I think Lilly’s chocolate chips would be good in them as well

                              Sure! Feel free to add in chocolate chips if you'd like.

                            Exactly how do you "pour" peanut butter? From the picture, it looks as if it has been melted first. Is that right? If so, how to go about melting it? Thanks.

                              Hi, natural peanut butter was used for this recipe, and it's fairly pourable on it's own. You can use whatever PB you have on hand, but many of them have added oils so the texture of the cookies may vary slighty.

                              Natural peanut butter without all the sugar and extras is quite pourable but obviously you can’t pour jiff, skippy, etc. I use crazy richards natural peanut butter. It is pourable.

                            How many of theses can you eat? Is it just one cookie?

                            Tried these today and they came pretty good. Will definitely do the trick if you’re craving something sweet.
