ACTIVE: 20 min–TOTAL:40 min–MAKES: about 50

Cooking spray

3 cups sugar

2 sticks butter, softened

1 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth, your call)

2 tbsp molasses

1 tbsp pure vanilla extract

Big pinch of baking powder

2 tsp kosher salt

3 very ripe bananas

2  1/2 cups all purpose flour

1  1/4 cups chocolate chips

5 ounces pretzels, smashed (about 3/4 cup pretzel crumbs)

10 bacon strips, cooked crisp and chopped fine

  1. Preheat the oven to 350* 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 sheets 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.
