I honestly don’t really know the exact sandwich Elvis really loved, but I’m pretty sure it was these flavors. If it wasn’t, it should have been.

Moving on. Welp. That wasn’t exactly fun to watch last night. That’s really all I have to say about that since I don’t really like football anyways.

Sorry this isn’t a 5 ingredient recipe. It’s tough to move houses and cook at the same time. But I’ll get you one this week. Don’t worry buttercup.

But anyways, moving is done. If you didn’t hear me talk about it for the past month, you sure missed out. I’ll give you a recap, I don’t want you to feel in the dark. I found this apartment about a month ago and even though I didn’t need to move out of my house until May, I decided it was too perfect to say no to. So I hounded the landlord with emails and calls and got my deposit check in as soon as the bank opened. I didn’t give him the opportunity to say no. Well, since I got the place starting in February, I decided I shouldn’t waste more money not living in it. So I’ve moved from the Wash Park area of Denver to City Park. I like parks.

Moving is probably one of the least fun things. Ever. You always scrape some kind of furniture. You usually fall at least once (especially if you’re moving in the snow like I did). And you find out all the money you have to spend on refilling groceries, decorating the place, and figure out everything you’re missing since you don’t have roommates anymore. A plunger? Ah crap. Hi Home Depot. But in the end, it’s totally worth it. Especially if you have lovely friends who are selfless enough to help you move. You know those are good people because honestly, nobody actually likes helping with that.

So I’m living the uptown city life now. Lots more shouting and car noise, but I’m into it. Now I have a much larger kitchen so I actually enjoy being in it AND I have an office AND I have a huge balcony to take food pictures on. Pretty much, I got this new place so I could make better food and blogs for you. I’m so selfless.

That’s a total lie.

Elvis Cookies: “Peanut Butter” Banana Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Yield: 12 1x




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together banana, sunflower seed butter, honey, egg and vanilla. Then add in cinnamon baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  3. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips and cooked bacon.

    I don’t know why mine came out really soft

  2. Johnny J. says:

    I tried using almond instead of sunflower butter, but the consistency of my batter was so thin that I didn’t think cookies would work! So I improvised, added some raw cacao powder for added thickness, grabbed a 9X9 pan, and voilà, I had brownies!

    And they came out so well! Even my Paleo-skeptic friends thought so. Thanks!

  3. Jill says:

    Can I do Almond butter instead?

    Ok, so these sound amazing! Must make. Note to self, buy copious amounts of bacon!
    Anyway, so my question is about your chocolate chips, enjoy life. I love and use them btw, mini chips make me happy. And I got this crazy deal on am*zon, like less than 4$ a bag good. Ok so these contain sugar and I thought that was a no no on the paleo diet, maybe I am wrong? I thought it could only be honey or maple syrup, or fruit.
    Either way no one wants to give up chocolate and these are pretty great. Just curious. 🙂 Love your site btw, I am fairly new to this, but I am trying to incorporate it into my diet. Thanks!

      if you can find soy free and dairy free chocolate and chop it into pieces, that would be best. the sugar content is a bit high but it’s nice to not have soy lecithin in chips

  5. NIKKI says:

    So I tried this recipe and I may have messed up but my batter and cookies turned out green and awful… maybe I am would try a different kind of butter

    1. juli says:

      if they turned green, that is because of the sunflower seed and baking soda reaction, but they still should have tasted fine

  6. Linda says:

    Not sure why but I could not taste the bacon flavor at all.
    I used almond butter instead maybe it over powered the bacon flavor. They were good but kind of a waste to,put in bacon if I can’t taste it.
    I have made a lot of your recipes so am thinking It might be the almond butter instead of the sunflower seed butter .

  7. Amy says:

    These were very tasty, but likely because I used a mix of tahini and almond butter, my batter turned out very thin (even though I used only 1/2 cup of banana puree as noted in the comments section). There was no way I could make individual cookies, so it became a big cookie sheet which I cut up at the end! So, lesson is – make sure that whichever nut butter you use it’s a relatively firm one!

  8. Nancy says:

    Can you substitute the honey with maple syrup?

    1. juli says:

      yes, that should work just fine!
