Chocolate Bacon Almond Butter Bananas



So it is almost the end of January, which means people are finishing their Whole 30’s, strict regiments, or already done with their 21 Day Sugar Detox.  Great news for you, this recipe will knock your socks off you can have it now.  Now, I am not saying you should eat this everyday, but I made it to celebrate the end of my detox before I started again the next day and this hit the spot.  There are just so many amazing ingredients by themselves that all paired together I am left speechless because no adjectives exist in the english language to accurately describe this.  I even had trouble naming this because I just wanted to use expletives but I don’t think people would be searching on google for F#&K!#G Amazing.  But honestly, I have seen weirder searches.

  1. I made this last night. My mind was blown! Simply amazing and I’m bringing this with me this weekend to a dinner I’m going to. Thanks for the AMAZING recipe(s)!! Now that I’m thinking about these again, I should have had one for breakfast. :)

  2. Why didn’t I think of this?! I always do chocolate covered sliced banana but everything is better with bacon. GENIUS. George- it’s great to see another Paleo dude so passionate about cooking. Your recipes are awesome. My girl and I always use your site as a go-to for recipes!

  3. I just made a small batch with 2 bananas, some sunflower seed butter (I’m allergic to almond) and 1/2 cup of melted enjoy life chips, I still cooked 4 slices of bacon and ate the extra piece. I doubt I waited long enough to eat one, but it doesn’t even matter. Holy f-bomb, I’m in love. This is better than cake and ice cream. This meets my mother’s standard “Sell my clothes, I’ve died and gone to heaven,” good. I am so happy right now. You are amazing!

  4. I’m new to paleo, but what about using cashew butter? I love cashews!!! But either way, these are on my “to try” list!!!

  5. Made these today minus bacon & added coconut oil to the chocolate chips..yum! Thanks! Next time bacon will be added!

  6. Has anyone tried putting a popsicle stick in the middle?
    OR maybe I’ll halve the banana longways, spread halves with almond butter,
    put a stick in then freeze. Dip the frozen thingy in chocolate then roll it in bacon crumbles.
    Guess I’ll have to experiment. Thanks for the inspiration, Caveman!

  7. Made this last night and am currently eating it now for a little birthday breakfast treat. Holy mother of god. This is one of the best things to ever come in contact with my taste buds. Thanks for sharing your mad scientist-esque creation.
