Elvis was known for his love of peanut butter and bananas, but I added a few extra goodies that I think he would approve of.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a baking sheet or sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In a big bowl, mix the sugar, butter, peanut butter, molasses, vanilla, baking powder and salt until it's all one color. Add the bananas and mash them up real good in there.
  3. Add the flour and gently mix until incorporated, with no lumps.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips, pretzel pieces and bacon.
  5. Using two spoons, form balls about the size of a large walnut and drop them on the prepared baking sheet(s) at least 2 inches apart. Place the sheet(s) in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden on the outside and super gooey in the middle, just like the King would want them. Let cool on a wire rack off the baking sheet.
  7. Find this recipe and more in Duff Bakes: Think and Bake Like a Pro at Home ($27.50, William Morrow).
