We believe that bacon is the candy of meats. Seriously. That is why these banana, maple bacon muffins just ROCK. WHen y ou take a bacon muffin and add in banana, and then maple too? Be prepared to start drooling!

We love this recipe because it is simple, the muffins are wonderfully moist and that cinnamon-vanilla combination really adds a nice layer of flavor. It makes 12 larger sized muffins but you could easily double the recipe. We make some with and without the bacon glaze, so we can freeze them for Miss Sarah’s breakfasts.
