Here’s a fun recipe dedicated to my friend Lisa, she’s a HUGE Elvis Presley fan. Elvis loved to eat peanut butter banana bacon sandwiches (see more cookbooks with Elvis Presley’s favorite recipes) and here’s a super fun twist to honor the king of rock and roll. I found this recipe on the Pillsbury website and of course modified it and tweaked it to make it healthier. One cresent roll is 3 weight watcher points.
Take the banana and place it into a bowl and mash it up.
Place a tsp of the mashed banana onto each cresent.
Cut thin strips from the bacon as they appear in the image below (before the roll).
Roll up the cresent but not too tight as we don’t want the banana to ooze out. Repeat for each cresent.
Place in oven for 8-10 minutes or until a nice golden color appears.
When cooked remove from the oven and place 1/4 of the peanut butter on top of the roll. The heat will help it melt. You can garnish it as shown in the picture above or just leave it with the melting peanut butter. Serve and enjoy.
If your like me and LOVE rice krispy treats here’s a great healthy, low fat alternative. I slightly modified the recipe from hungry girl and added some peanut butter and a few more marshmallows. One square is 1 weight watchers point, which means yes a treat you can finally pig out on and NOT feel guilty. Speaking of which I think my pan is now cooled, ready to be cut, photographed and devoured. Until our next encounter; Enjoy
5 cups of puff wheat
2 cups of fiber one (love this stuff)
3.5 cups of mini marshmallows

1 tablespoon of peanut butter (regular or low fat there is no point difference)
Mix the two cereals in a large bowl. Set aside.
Melt butter and peanut butter in a large pot.
Add mini marshmallows and melt those down.
Remove pot from the heat and add the cereal and stir until fully covered.
