Peanut Butter Bacon Blondies

I am in love… with Washington D.C.

Like I mentioned, Joseph and I ventured off to DC to visit his sister from Thursday to Tuesday. It was SUCH a great time!

It was a jam-packed 6 day full of good times.

While we were exploring one neighborhood we came across a bakery that sold gourmet pop tarts. Neat, huh? I thoughts so. Anywho, we got a few to bring to Jazz in the Sculpture Park for a little sweet treat. One of the flavors was peanut butter bacon. After the first bite I became obsessed with this flavor combo. Genius! First task on the to-do list once I got home? Make something peanut butter and bacon!

Actually though guys… I’m seriously loving this duo. It sounds a little goofy and off the wall, but it’s so unexpectedly great!

The best part? This recipe is light on butter and uses white whole wheat flour and turkey bacon. What does that mean? Even though peanut butter and bacon scream two things :Fat and Calories, these blondies won’t ruin your healthy eating efforts. Sweet, sweet (and salty) success.
