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 flour1 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!
