Bacon. Peanut Butter. Banana Bread? Say what? We love a good loaf bread over here at TYL, and when you combine bacon, peanut butter, and bananas do you know what you get? If you’re thinking Elvis, you’re not wrong, but when you mix those three things in the kitchen? You make something truly wonderful!
This is the epitome a sweet and savory snack or dessert or get crazy with some french toast. The bacon pairs nicely with peanut butter and bananas already so add them together, and you get magic. Pure magic. A party in your mouth.

Banana Bacon Bread
- 6 Sliced Bacon (Thick-cut and chopped)
- 2 1/2 Cups AP Flour
- 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoons Salt
- 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 cup Dark Brown Sugar (Loosely Packed)
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 Stick Butter (Browned and cooled)
- 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter*
- 1/4 Cup Bacon Drippings
- 4 Ripe Bananas (Mashed)
- 1/3 Cup Milk
*You can take out the peanut butter and add Nutella…YES. Life is better with Nutella.
Preheat your oven to 350°F and spray your loaf pan with cooking spray.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add bacon. Cook until the fat had rendered out. Remove the bacon from the pan and reserve the bacon fat.
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk your eggs and sugar together. Next add the vanilla, peanut butter, bacon fat, and browned butter. Stir until smooth.
Next, add the mashed the bananas and milk and stir until combined. In batches, slowly stir in the dry ingredients until the batter begins to come together. Fold in the bacon.
Pour the batter into your greased loaf pan. Place the loaf on a baking sheet and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow bread to cool and remove from the loaf pan. Serve with peanut butter, butter or nutella.
