Bacon, Banana & Maple Muffins (with Chocolate Chips)

My mouth is watering just blogging about these delicious muffins! I had saved a recipe by The Café Wellness that included the incredible combo of bacon, banana & chocolate and I really wanted to try them. Then last night as I was scrolling through Facebook I came across a question “What is your favourite flavour combo?” I quickly added my 5 cents worth replying “Bacon, Banana & Maple Syrup”. And after collecting my monthly supply of Nitrate-Free, Free-Range Bacon from Dawson Valley Free Range yesterday how could I not make a batch of my own. I planned to use maple syrup instead of honey and leave out the chocolate chips as I thought they would make the muffins too sweet!

Ingredients

2/3 Cup Coconut Flour

1/4 Cup Tapioca Flour

1 Teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of Himalayan Rock Salt

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1/4 Cup Coconut oil

3 Organic Eggs

1 Teaspoon Organic Vanilla Essence

1/2 cup Almond Milk

1/4 Cup Maple Syrup

5 Short Cut Nitrate Free bacon rashes

2 Ripe Bananas Mashed

Directions

1. Heat oven to 180 degree (c). Line a muffin tray with papers.

2. Dice bacon into bite size pieces and cook over medium heat until cooked half-way through stirring regularly.

3. Mash bananas in a small bowl and put aside.

4. Add dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl.

5. Whisk eggs in a small bowl and put aside.

6. When bacon is cooked add all wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix with a metal spoon until well combined.

7. At this point my 5 year old injected her opinion “these look really good mum, but they would be even better with some chocolate chips in them”. So in went 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Next time I would add half a cup of toasted walnuts at this stage. Fold in gently.

8. Divide between 12 muffin cases and bake for 18-20 min or until slightly golden. Leave to cool for 5 minutes in tin and then eat while still warm. AMAZING. They freeze and would be great for breakfast with nuts instead of the choc chips… Enjoy!

  1. Bacon and Banana muffins! Thanks for this post.

  2. Yum!! I definitely have to try this. I just had chocolate covered bacon for the first time and loved it but this brings it to a whole new level!

  3. OH! I can’t wait to make these! They look and sound fantastic!

  4. Not sure about the chocolate and maple syrup, but it reminds me of a toasted sandwich I used to eat years ago. It was from a coffee shop in Ayr Qld. Bacon and banana with cheese melted over the top! It was delicious and I think I’ll have to try it with Dawson valley free range bacon! Thanks for the post!

    • Yummm the sandwich sounds delicious…sometimes i really miss bread!! I love coconut pancakes with bacon and banana too. This morning I’m having the last of my bacon with eggs,sweet potato/onion hash & spinach. I am going to enjoy it even more as I am still in bed and my husband is cooking it!

  5. Oh my! As much as I love bacon I still don’t know how I feel about it being in my sweet treat lol, but I’ll come around to it one day:)
