Banana Maple Bacon Muffins

That’s right, you read it correctly – a breakfast muffin with BACON! It’s the weekend, so I have a little more time to mess around in the kitchen.  I saw a recipe similar to this on TGIPaleo’s blog site and I had to try it for myself.  You should too :).  I made a couple tweaks and edits to their recipe, but all in all I find that either way you make them, you still get something delicious with bacon.

As I put together this recipe, my little helper was trying to get to the bacon! The little guy likes it as much as I do.


Banana Maple Bacon Muffins

  • Print


  • 1/2 c Almond Butter
  • 1 Mashed Banana
  • 3 T Maple Syrup
  • 1 T Vanilla
  • 1/2 cups Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 t Baking Soda
  • 1 t Cinnamon
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1+1/2 t bacon grease
  • 3 slices Bacon, cooked* and diced

*Cook bacon in the oven on a non-stick pan at 325 F for 15-20 minutes until crispy (but not too crispy). This is the easiest and best way to cook bacon ever! Collect a tiny bit of the grease to grease the muffin pans as well as add to the batter. Don’t be scared, it’s not too much.


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F
  2. Using an electric mixer, mix together the almond butter, banana, vanilla, and maple syrup until it’s well combined.
  3. Add in the coconut flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  4. Add the eggs and bacon grease and fully combine ingredients
  5. Lastly, use a wooden spoon to mix in the bacon bits.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Gobble these puppies up and make it all over again :)
