Recipe: Paleo Banana Pancakes with Bacon

When Melissa and I were planning this weekend, we pretty much divided our time together by potential blog posts. Paleo recipes, personal style, makeup, and not-so-Paleo cocktails all made the list and were fit into our two-day schedule. So if you read her blog, you might see some duplications over the next week or so. So for now, let's start with pancakes. Because it's Monday, and I know how Mondays can be, and because sometimes you just need pancakes.

We used a variation of this recipe for the pancake batter, and before the pancakes went onto the griddle, we fried up some bacon to go in them, because why not, man? I still maintain the opinion that there's not much that can't be made better with at least a little bacon. And did you hear? Turns out banana, vanilla, cinnamon, and bacon are like, best friends.ο»Ώ

Ingredientsο»Ώ (makes 4-5 big pancakes):

  • Two or three strips of bacon, cut in half
  • Two bananas
  • Three eggs
  • Three tablespoons coconut flour
  • One teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon, pinch of salt

Instructions:

  1. Space out strips of bacon onto the pan or griddle where you will make the pancakes. Fry them up!
  2. Blend all pancake ingredients in a food processor or blender until completely smooth.
  3.  When the bacon is done, spoon pancake batter on and around each strip and let cook for about eight minutes.
  4.  Flip each pancake carefully and let the other side cook. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.
