Banana brownies with peanut butter chips, peanut butter buttercream, and crumbled, fried bacon!
Bacon is a trendy food at the moment. Who’d have thought? It’s just so salty and greasy though that it’s hard not to love. Everybody craves a good fat-laden, sodium bomb now and again.
It also offers some protein, so if you’re strictly nutritionally-minded, at least there’s that.
These Elvis Brownies not only combine peanut butter and bacon, a surprisingly awesome duo, but they also include banana and chocolate. There’s a little bit of everything in these Elvis Brownies.
Because, why stop at just peanut butter and bacon, I always say.
The brownies themselves are actually lightened a bit by substituting mashed banana for some of the oil. Combining chocolate and banana is delicious anyway, and you shave off a few calories too. That will be handy when we top these brownies with fried bacon.
Throw some peanut butter chips in with the brownie batter, and you’ve got a moist and delicious banana brownie with melty and gooey peanut butter chips. Whoop!
Next up, slather them with peanut butter buttercream. It’s my favorite. It’s surprisingly fluffy and light for having so much heavy peanut butter, but it really is a fluffy frosting. The peanut butter flavor is intense, and that’s just how you want it to be!
Now, crumble the brownies with a hefty dose of fried, crispy bacon. Are you still with me? We’ve built a circle of trust by now, right? You know I wouldn’t lead you astray. Trust me.. the bacon makes these!
These banana brownies with peanut butter frosting are decadent, no doubt about it. Add salty fried bacon on top for a little salty crunch, and these Elvis Brownies are seriously the ultimate in decadence!
Even if you don’t like Elvis’ music for some reason, he definitely got this flavor combo right! You’ve gotta try this banana brownies with peanut butter frosting recipe.
