peanut butter banana bacon muffins

Have you ever phased out while making a meal? You know, stiring a pot of stew and you start imaging the laundry, or maybe a sunny beach. While I was recently cooking up some bacon for breakfast, and considering what to bake at the same time. A pile of ripe banana's were slowly creeping along the table to have a conversation with me about being used up, so I knew they were down for a good time. The peanut butter jar was staring down at me from his perch in the cupboard; basically asking if he could take the banana's to baking prom. And who am I to get in the way. I agreed to their date, as long I could send a chauffeur of my choice...crispy delicious bacon! So with all participants happy about my decision, it was time to finish breakfast and start the party.

The muffins were fantastic. 4 banana's provided for a charmin soft base, while the pb added enough of a subtle after taste. I decided to sub in some bacon fat, and crumbled crisp bacon on top. Savory, sweet, and delicious; I ended up with a small army of muffins (2o) The only thing I would change next time would be to push the bacon into the batter. Some of the pieces didn't incorporate as well as I would have liked and were shaking loose out of the oven.

This is too funny! I just saw a post earlier this morning for Chocolate Chip Cookies with Bacon and now these. Indeed, they do sound interesting. I'll have to work up the courage to try it sometime. :-)

These were DELICIOUS! And I totally agree with incorporating the bacon pieces into the muffin batter next time. So good!

Is your fluffy banana bread secret the large number of bananas you use?
