Bacon Fat Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe for Cannabis Bacon Fat Peanut Butter Cookies

Editor’s Note: This article first appeared on The Ministry of Hemp, America’s leading advocate for Hemp

It is vitally important and necessary to me as an award winning, nationally recognized farm-to-fork chef that has been cooking with cannabis since the early 90’s to let people know that there is more to consuming hemp and cannabis than in candy form made with sugar. I’m educating the general public about clean cannabis consumption through food as my primary focus.

Eat your greens!

Using hemp or cannabis bacon fat

Over the years I have infused cannabinoids into a tremendous amount of things, from high octane alcohols, to MCT oil, grapeseed oil, hemp seed oil, creamery butter, coconut oil, and extra virgin olive oil.

But the most exciting of all the fats I have use to help bind to all of the readily available cannabinoids in cannabis has got to be bacon fat. Preferably rendered from heritage bread pork belly smoked over applewood, or what other folks call bacon.

Cannabis-infused bacon fat makes a perfect carrier for cannabinoids in all kinds of recipes, like these delicious peanut butter cookies. Photo: Peanut butter cookies garnished with a hemp leaf on a board on display.

I realize that 99% of the previously mentioned fats and oils are plant derived but according to an article I read in the June 1, 2016 issue of High Times Magazine, bacon fat is one of the top three fats to use when extracting the cannabinoids and terpenes found in cannabis and hemp.

First off, I couldn’t be happier when I heard the results of the study on bacon fat and cannabinoids. Secondly, I had no frickin’ idea that there was such a study. As a professional chef of over 25 years who has been proudly cooking with cannabis since the early 90’s, cannabis bacon fat only made sense.

So over the years I have transformed this super simple, traditional peanut butter cookie recipe that has floated around the family cookie archives for decades to include a couple of full spectrum cannabis products that will help mellow situations and liven up the conversation at any event (cannabis tends to do that). Do not skip the light sprinkle of sea salt flakes, it’s a palette pleasing addition.

(and just to help clear up any future questions that may appear in my in-box, duck fat works just as well)

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cannabis vanilla

  • Preheat an oven to 350°.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a stainless bowl with an electric mixer, beat the bacon fat, peanut butter, peanuts and sugar until the mixture lightens in color and the mixture becomes creamy (2 to 3 minutes).
  • Add the egg and terpenes, keep beating until completely incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and kosher salt.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture, mixing until all of the ingredients are combined well.
  • Roll the dough into balls about 1 inch around. place the cookie dough about 1 inch apart on a parchment lined baking sheet and gently press the top of each cookie dough ball with a fork dipped in granulated sugar to make a crisscross pattern.
  • Sprinkle the cookie tops with the sea salt flakes.
  • Bake the cookies for 9 to 10 minutes, until barely browned around the edges. Do not overbake the cookies. The cookies may appear slightly puffed, but it’s all good, they are ok.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes.
  • Then carefully transfer the dank ‘n delicate cookies to a wire rack to cool completely before devouring.
