Years ago, while vacationing in Las Vegas, I discovered Vosges chocolates. Unable to afford most of their truffles at the time, I bought the more affordable Mo’s Bacon Bar and fell in love with the milky chocolate and salty bits of bacon.

I thought they would be spectacular in Almond Butter Chocolate Chip cookies from Clean Eating magazine, so I decided to try it out.

Peanut butter works just as well as almond butter in this recipe, so no need for a special trip to the store if you don’t have almond butter. These cookies are a flour-free, protein packed treat, perfect post-workout. Plus, the bacon chocolate adds a salty sweet surprise.

    Wow…I love bacon, but that sounds awful.
    and to add to it, the Mo’s Drak Bacon Bar is $7.50 for a 3 oz bar!

    Peanut butter, chocolate, and bacon? It can’t get any better! I could see myself just skipping the cookie part and dipping the bacon bar straight into a jar of creamy Skippy.
