It’s time to get crazy! I’m talking a cookie without any of the normal cookie ingredients crazy: no flour, no sugar, no butter. OK, that might not be THAT crazy, but I think its pretty exciting 🙂 And they’re called Elvis Cookies, so ya, pretty crazy and exciting.

I guess that means I’m getting old. HaHaHa! This was inspired after the King’s favorite sandwich – a peanut butter honey sandwich with sliced banana, bacon and honey. You might be asking what the heck is in this cookie and you might have guessed some ingredients based on the fact that I called these Elvis Cookies: peanut butter, banana, and bacon.

–Elvis Cookies Recipe–

Makes: 8-10 cookies

Ingredients:

  • banana, 1 small
  • peanut butter, crunchy, 1/2 cup
  • honey, 1/2 tbsp
  • bacon, cooked, 1 slice (I used double smoked fig bacon – so good!)

Tools: 

  • baking sheet
  • parchment
  • oven

Directions: 

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • mash banana in a bowl
  • mix in peanut butter until well combined. Then stir in honey
  • dice bacon and then mix into batter
  • spoon tablespoon sized cookies on to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. After baking, move to plate to cool
  • serve and enjoy!

Notes:

  • You can use creamy peanut butter instead of crunchy though I prefer the added crunch the peanut pieces give to the cookies.
  • Any bacon will do, but it’s better with a thicker slice. Really thin bacon might get too crisp. You don’t need fruit smoked bacon, but it does give a nice fake jelly essence to the cookie. PB&J made possible by PB and Fig Bacon.

  4. Wooow! I would never have put the three together, but dang… now I have to make these. They sound amazing.

  5. Peanut butter and bacon…BRILLIANT! My son is allergic to peanuts, but I bet this would work just as good with sunbutter. Thanks for the recipe.

    Elvis combos are my jam! The sweet and salty combo I can never get enough. These look delicious. While I don’t eat bacon and make mine with coconut bacon I bet my oldest daughter would like these.

  7. Fun cookie! I think we’ll swap that out with coconut bacon and have a deal!

      Coconut Bacon would be great in these! That’s a great Vegan alternative! 🙂
