Everything is better with bacon, right?! This week’s Sunday Supper theme is all about bacon, I know…..you’re welcome! These maple bacon protein pancakes are the bomb and really fluffy and tasty. I’ve learned, through trial and error, that plant-based protein powder works great in protein baked goods. You can also use a whey blend or casein, but regular whey isolate can make your recipe really, really dry.
The protein that I used here is the Garden of Life raw protein powder. I used a center cut bacon and cooked it in the oven according to the package instructions. Allow the bacon to cool. Then chop it into pieces and then toss with a little maple sugar. Add half the bacon to the pancake batter and the rest for garnishing on top.
Heat a skillet over medium high heat and add a little coconut oil to the pan, this gives a nice crisp outside layer to the pancake, while keeping them fluffy on the inside. Serve pancakes with real maple syrup and top with remaining sugared-coated bacon.
- ¾ cup whole grain all-purpose baking mix (I use Pamela's gluten free baking mix)
- ½ cup plant-based vanilla protein powder (I used Garden of Life RAW vanilla protein powder with great results)
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp maple sugar (plus more for coating bacon)
- ¼ cup 2% milk
- ½ cup water
- 12 slices center-cut bacon
- coconut oil for cooking
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Cook bacon on a foil-lined baking sheet for 12-14 minutes.
- Whisk together all remaining ingredients in a medium size bowl
- Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat
- Add coconut oil and heat until melted and hot
- Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, add pancake batter to pan and cook until bubbles start to form.
- Flip and cook the other side.
- Chop cooked bacon up into bite-size pieces and toss with coconut sugar.
- Serve pancakes with crumbled maple bacon and real maple syrup (or a sugar-free version if watching calories).
