Caramel Bacon Brownies

Caramel bacon brownies are for breakfast, because brownies with bacon in them should always be eaten for breakfast!

Today, after giving my boyfriend a full 24 hours to claim the last lonely brownie, I finished it – for breakfast. Then I got told brownies are not for breakfast.

On that I call BS. Who really eats a completely balanced breakfast? What breakfast isn’t a sugar loaded sweet tooth festival?  Unless you’re an eggs on toast person, most breakfasts have sugar, and a lot of it. Pancakes, waffles, crepes, fruits, and cereals are all sugary goodness. I am not a breakfast person to begin with – heck, I don’t really even like eating before noon.

But what my health conscience self usually grabs in the AM is either a steak, or in today’s case, caramel bacon brownies.

Besides, these tasty treats have bacon in them, so that counts for something, right?

This caramel bacon brownies recipe is from an awesome friend I’ve made via blogging, who just completed a marathon! Steph is blogging, wedding planning, working, and running marathons? Way to make me feel like a serious slacker. Go check out her site, all of her tasty goodies, and congratulate her on her huge 26.2 mile achievement!

I am trying this for a friend's birthday this weekend. I am so excited. I do have one quick question - what do you do with the 2 slices of cooked bacon in the brownie portion of the recipe? I see where you use the two slices in the caramel sauce, but there are also 2 slices mentioned in the ingredients list for the brownies. Do you simply stir the chopped bacon into the batter at the end after the flour?

Yes! I am sorry about that. Fold the chopped 2 slices into the batter before baking.

I made these today... so delicious. The only thing that could make these better is more bacon!

I used to skip breakfast and have some bites here and there during the morning, but just like you said, unless you have eggs, everything else is sweet in the morning. the brownies look great, amazing photo as usual Thanks for sharing Kita
