    Serves: 2 

    • 3 slices bacon
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 banana, chopped
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
    • 1 pinch bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 pinch (gluten free) baking powder
    • 1 pinch salt

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Place the bacon in a large non-stick pan and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly cooked and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon on kitchen paper and pour the bacon grease into a glass bowl. Chop the bacon into small pieces.
    2. Beat eggs and banana in a bowl with an electric mixer until foamy and smooth. Beat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the reserved bacon grease, bacon pieces and vanilla extract into the egg mixture. Whisk coconut flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt into egg mixture until pancake batter is just combined. Let pancake batter rest for 2 minutes.
    3. Heat a pan or flat griddle over medium-high heat and lightly grease with bacon fat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the pan and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining pancake batter.

    good pancakes, i typically just do boxed gluten free pancakes but i decided to step outside the box and try something different. i cooked these on low to keep them from burning, the first one i cooked on medium-high and it turned black. thats the only change i made and the rest were pretty good.  -  12 Aug 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe! I don't have anything to add for this recipe. Will definitely make it again.  -  11 Aug 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Instead of using a banana, I used organic unsweetened applesauce and added some cinnamon. Instead of adding bacon bits to mix, we ate the bacon on the side, but I cooked the pancakes in the bacon grease. Both my 12 year old and 22 year old LOVED them! I also just put all ingredients in a bowl and mixed with a wisk, to keep it slightly lumpy, which is what makes pancakes fluffy. I made the pancakes pretty thick and next time I will make them thinner to get more even cooking (I'm still just learning to cook with coconut flour.) I will definitely be making these again!  -  24 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
