Paleo pancakes are as much an oxymoron as monokinis, cool summer night, or "tasteful wallpaper", and yet, they are one of the most popular paleo dishes. It seems like anyone new to the paleo diet kicks off their new lifestyle with one of the millions of recipes for pancakes (yours truly is author of two, here and here), so I almost feel bad sharing this recipe with you, except for the fact that they ARE DELICIOUS AND EASY AND HAVE BACONOMG! IN THEM!!!!!!Megan and I created when I visited her in Roanoke this weekend (more to come from that trip!), requires little to no skill to put together, which was integral considering we consumed like, 5 liquor drinks the night before as part of her wedding reception cocktail tasting.
don't like bacon are a crazy person, you could leave the bacon out, but like, just don't. That said, we just put strips down the middle of them, but you could always dice the bacon and toss it into the batter that way, too, but then you're adding the extra step of, ya know, dicing.
Paleo Bacon Pancakes
Makes 4 large pancakes
- 2 ripe bananas
- 3 eggs
- 3 Tbsp. coconut flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- dash of cinnamon
- 2 strips of bacon, cut in half (or 4 whole slices if you're in beast mode)
1. In a pan over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Do not drain the fat.
2. While bacon cooks, put bananas in food processor; pulse until pureed completely.
3. Add eggs, flour, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to bananas and continue to pulse until everything is pureed and smooth.
4. Using a spoon or ladle, pour batter on top of bacon strip. Cook until the pancake set enough on the bottom to flip--about 4-8 minutes depending on your stovetop. Then, like, cook on the other side. Obviously.
5. Serve warm, with quality maple syrup if you like.
