PBBB cupcakes... cupcake hero!


Cupcake hero is back! Cupcake hero is back!! CB of i heart cuppycakes has brought it back! And she hates bananas... so the secret ingredient this month... BANANAS!! She's a fun one isn't she? Figures if she likes it, it must be darn good! And check out the sponsors... I could possible win.... this or this or this!

CB is a freakin awesome girl and she loves her some cupcakes... and I'm totally trying to bribe her with the fact I used BACON, yes bacon, (has anyone else noticed that bacon is so IN right now??) and peanut butter... who can say no to PB and bacon? Really now! Now don't think I'm just trying to cover up the banana goodness with these kick butt flavors, they actually go well with the banana... come on haven't' you ever heard of Elivis' love for this in sandwich form??? Must be why he went from skinny Elvis to big fat Elvis huh? Man these things are good... well lets face it, top anything with bacon and it's probably going to taste good. Needless to say I filed these under the "not healthy" category ;)

So my official submission for cupcake hero September is:

PBBB cupcakes AKA Peanut Butter Bacon & Banana Cupcakes
recipe by stephchows
makes 12

dry
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oat flour (I just take oats and spin them in a coffee grinder to make flour)
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 Tbs milled flax seeds
1 tsp cinnamon

wet
3 very ripe bananas (about 1.5 cups)
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla

to add at the end
1/2 cup skim milk

for the filling
12 Tbs peanut butter (i used all natural chunky- but use what you like)
12 slices thick cut bacon cooked until crisp

Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium bowl
Beat together wet ingredients in a large bowl.
Slowly add dry to wet, alternating in the 1/2 cup of skim milk.
Scoop into 12 muffin tins, bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.


Let the muffins cool for about 5 minutes, then slice in half and spread 1 Tbs of peanut butter on each muffin, top with 1 large slice of very crisp bacon (break it up to fit), then put the top of the cupcake back on. Serve warm right away.

CHOW

Everyone is baking with bacon these days, but the whole meat in dessert thing still freaks me out a little!
