Elvis Blondies-- Peanut Butter Banana Bacon Blondies

These Peanut Butter Banana Blondies are drizzled with a Maple Glaze and Sprinkled with Bacon! If you like the Sweet and Salty combo, you'll love these Bars! This recipe is pretty healthy minus the bacon. The bars do not have any sugar added to them. I personally would like them to be a little bit sweeter, I think next time I will add some honey or a bit of sugar to the bars mixture.

For the Topping: 

6 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped-- I buy precooked Bacon Pieces to save time :)

1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup


For the Bars:

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter 
1 1/2 bananas, mashed
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


Make the Topping:

Combine the powdered sugar and maple syrup in a small bowl, stirring until smooth. Set aside.

Make the Bars:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x9 square baking dish with a sheet of parchment paper.
Stir the peanut butter and bananas together in a large bowl.
Add the oil, milk, and vanilla, and stir until well combined.
Stir in the remaining ingredients, and pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes, or until soft in the middle but beginning to brown around the edges.
Cool completely. Top with the maple glaze and bacon. Cut into bars and serve.
