Ingredients

  • 16 bacon strips
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 4 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons full fat canned coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • tablespoons of Bob’s Red Mill organic coconut flour
  • teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • ghee or coconut oil for frying
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Instructions

  • Bake two trays of bacon in a 400°F oven for 10-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the porky strips. (Check out my step-by-step instructions and photos for bakin’ bacon here.)
  • While the bacon is sizzling in the oven, mash the banana in a small bowl. You should end up with ¼ cup mashed ripe banana.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract. Stir in the mashed banana until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir well. No lumps, please.
  • Melt a heaping tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the fat is shimmering, ladle three tablespoons of batter using a large disher into the hot pan and pour the batter into a rectangle-shape, approximately the length of your cooked bacon.
  • As soon as bubbles form on the surface (about 1½ minutes), flip the pancake strip over and cook for an additional 30 seconds or until cooked through.
  • Transfer the pancake to a cooling rack and repeat with the rest of the batter. You should end up with 8 pancakes in total.
  • Now: assemble the sandwiches! Lay two strips of crispy bacon on one pancake, drizzle on a bit of maple syrup (but don’t drench it—no one like soggy bacon), and top it all off with a second pancake. Repeat until 4 sandwiches are assembled.

Notes

Simple mod: If you’re hankering for a snack-sized ’wich, just grab one pancake and fold it in half before tucking in the bacon and maple syrup.
