Peanut Butter- Banana Mini Muffins with Brown Sugar Glazed Bacon

Let's call these Elvis Muffins!! I don't know why, but you can ask Nanci.....I've been wanting to make a muffin with peanut butter, banana and bacon and finally I came up with these.  I think they are really yummy and a great balance of sweet and savory....all wrapped up in a bite sized treat.


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Brown Sugar Bacon
6 slices of bacon, cooked and broken into bite sized pieces
1 Tablespoon brown sugar


In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Combine bananas, sugar, egg and butter and peanut butter; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined mini muffin cups three-fourths full.  Bake at 375 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

Put bacon pieces in a small frying pan and sprinkle with brown sugar, heat on med/hi and constantly toss the bacon and the sugar together until the sugar is melted and the bacon looks shiny.  Remove to a greased surface or parchment paper to cool in a single layer.  Once cooled place a tiny dot of peanut butter on top of each mini muffin and then place a piece of sugared bacon on top.  Enjoy!


  1. Holy smokes! Bacon on a muffin. I think you've really hit on something big.

  2. hahaha I'm going to post them on Sweets for Saturday so we'll see! :)

  3. I've never added bacon to a sweet recipe before and I'm really tempted to try it. This flavor combination sounds delicious.

  4. Those little muffins look great. That sounds like a wonderful flavor combination!

  5. Elvis used to eat peanut butter and bananas (fried sandwich) and occasionally add bacon to it... Props to Nancy for knowing that tidbit of Elvis.. didn't know there was another Elvis fan here...

    sounds yummy...
