Elvis Puddin’ Cookies
With all of these “Elvis” themed recipes on my blog, I’m starting to think I might need help! Maybe it’s just the shock factor for me? People always seem to flock to bacon dishes and they tend to be surprised when you tell them there’s bacon in any kind of dessert! At least in the dessert world, bananas and peanut butter sound like they belong with bacon, don’t they? Making a dish or dessert with that combo seems natural and calling it “Elvis” comes with the territory – his sandwich preferences are quite well known after all.
Since bacon month is winding down, I have to tell y’all, I have had a ton of ideas to share over the past few weeks. My original recipe today was supposed to be a salad (I will probably be sharing that in the future some time!) How this ended up being cookies, I’ll never know – other than it was a lightbulb moment! Or maybe my thought process is really that random?
This is a cookie the King of Rock n’ Roll would have loved!

OMG, these cookies look SO amazing. Although I don't eat bacon, I love the combination of peanut butter banana and chocolate!
These sound awesome, Jamie!! I love the delicious flavor combination…..(can't wait to check out your salad, too!) Although I may have to substitute turkey bacon……I know – not the same!

Love…love…love the addition of bacon! 🙂
Peanut butter, banana and chocolate are always a winning combo! I'm curious about the addition of bacon, but you haven't steered me wrong yet! And I love bacon…really really love!
My husband has decided that these cookies look "really, really good." Which is a lot coming from him, trust me. I have yet to try bacon in a dessert but he's going to bug me until I make these lol!
Thank you for linking up this week!
Wow they look amazing! I will try.
Is there anything that you can substitute for the peanut butter. Nut allergies! Thank you!
I’ve never tried it any other way. If you try it with a different way, I would love to hear back in case anyone else ahs the same question.
