Disclaimer: I received a bunch of free bottles of Torani syrup for #BaconMonth for the purpose of creating a recipe
Don't worry, everyone, BACON MONTH still has some steam left! If you've just noticed, all month me and a whole bunch of bloggers (wrangled together by Julie of Bread Booze Bacon) are making bacon recipes ALL MONTH!
Today's recipe is brought to you by the oh-so-wonderful Torani syrups! These little muffins get a bit of a kick from the brown sugar cinnamon syrup (though the bananas keep it pretty sweet!) better yet, they're gluten free!
I adapted a paleo recipe I use regularly, so these are gluten free and HIGH PROTEIN! Feel free to grab one as an after workout snack... or breakfast. Whatever you'd like.
I always see peanutbutter and chocolate with bacon... but never just PB & Bacon, so I stopped myself from pouring in the chocolate chips. While I think the chips would make a fine addition, these are pretty baller just on their own.
