- 4 oz. bacon, diced
- 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp maple sugar
- 1/2 tsp real vanilla extract
- 1 cup almond milk
- Dash cinnamon
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup plantain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Additional bacon
- Grade B maple syrup
- In a frying pan, cook the diced bacon just shy of crispy, you want the texture to be tender not tough! Reserve the bacon fat and wipe the pan clean.
- In a bowl, cream together the coconut oil and maple sugar. Whisk in the eggs, vanilla, and almond milk. In a separate bowl, combine almond flour, plantain flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until thoroughly combined. Add the reserved bacon and mix.
- Heat the frying pan to just below medium. Add a small amount of the reserved bacon fat before ladling in a portion of the batter. The batter will be somewhat loose, so shoot for a pancake that\'s about 4 inches across (2" diameter). When the bubbles appear in the middle of the pancake, it\'s time to flip. It might take you a couple failed attempts to get the timing right, but around the third pancake you should have it down.
- Keep working one pancake at a time, adding a little bacon fat between each pancake, until you have a fat stack ready to be topped with more bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup.
