Bacon. Maple Syrup. Brown Sugar. Three things that when combined equal serious tummy satisfaction!
I’ve had bacon maple donuts before, but decided to skip the frying and turn these goodies into bacon maple muffins! Then I decided, why not add my favorite sweet ingredient, brown sugar, to take these muffins over the top!
- 6 slices cooked bacon (crumbled)
- 2 cups and 2 tbsp flour (separated)
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp butter
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Start by combining 2 cups flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
Next combine the vegetable oil, milk and egg in a large mixing bowl.
Whisk together, then add the maple syrup.
Next add the flour mixture.
Crumble the bacon and add to the batter.
Mix the bacon in then spoon the batter into lined muffin tins.
I doubled the recipe and made half large and half mini muffins!
Prepare the brown sugar crumble by combining the sugar, 2 tbsp flour and cinnamon in a small mixing bowl.
Fold in the butter and use your hands to mix into a course crumble.
Sprinkle the mixture on top of the muffins.
Place into the oven for 18 minutes (15 minutes for the mini muffins).
I am completely obsessed with the way these muffins turned out! I just love the way the crispy brown sugar shines on top of these amazing bacon maple filled muffins!
Oh and the mini version of these muffins were so totally adorable!
