These are really good! The maple and bacon flavor are great together. I used real maple syrup and these are just yummy! They remind me of the pancake part of a McGriddle sandwich at McDonalds - only better because they are homemade. Thanks for sharing!

These are SO good!<br/>First off, I love that they have no refined sugar. <br/><br/>I did a little tweaking to my own taste.<br/>First I used a gluten free flour blend, cup for cup.<br/>Then I used buttermilk instead of milk and I added walnuts.<br/>I didn't have enough oil and only used 1/4 of a cup, but this was more then enough and with the buttermilk they muffins are moist.<br/>Melted butter would also be nice and provide a lot of flavour as well.<br/>My house had a super nice maple aroma that I didn't want to go away.<br/>Next time, I will also grease my muffin tins with the bacon fat! It will add so much more awesome flavour.

The accident on the breakfast plate when some syrup gets onto your bacon...Mmmm deliciousness! I doubled the recipe, used large muffin pans, and got 11 muffins. I used 100% real maple syrup! Because of the saltiness of the bacon, definitely cut back on the salt in the recipe. It overpowered the maple and they didn't hit the sweetness I was anticipating. It's helps with maple drizzled on top! Or use regular syrup in the recipe...They are pretty yummy

I used real maple syrup and it was a little hard to detect. I wonder if it would have been different had I used pancake syrup. I didn't care for these, However,everyone that tried them thought that these muffins had the perfect texture. It was very nice to try.

I used a combination of leftover Canadian (peameal) bacon and ham in place of the bacon and real maple syrup. So good! I wanted even more maple flavour so I adapted the maple butter from the Maple French Toast Muffins (#343112) - 1/4 cup margarine plus a tablespoon of brown sugar and a sploosh (generous tablespoon?) of maple syrup mixed together till smooth. Spread some on a warm or cool muffin - heavenly. Buttery maple taste, soft crumb texture punctuated with the chunks of slightly salty meat. Can't wait to try this recipe with regular bacon. Thanks, Swan Valley Tammi, for a keeper!

Good muffins!! I only had 5 slices of bacon, and I definitely think the more the merrier when it comes to bacon!! :) I used half maple syrup and half pancake syrup. They turned out beautifully and DH and 2 year old DD, my toughest critics, both liked them!! Thank you!! We'll keep this one!

Yum! I am always on the look out for freezable breakfast ideas and this was a nice change from the usual muffins. I made these and Erna's Apple Pie Muffins ahead and popped them into my freezer. They made serving a breakfast to overnight company easy! Thanks for sharing :)
