A little sweet, more savoury, moist, fluffy and yummiest pancakes are on your way. Bacon pancakes sounds like an evil treat for breakfast. These savoury pancakes with the hint of little sweetness, tastes equally awesome with a hint of hot sauce and sour cream, or a drizzle of sugar or maple syrup. It’s all on you whether you like little more sweet or little more savoury.
As per the main ingredients all you are going to use is eggs, butter and coconut flour and the king of the recipe BACON off course. But there’s another totally new thing is going to be added in the recipe, which is, Gelatine. Because why not?
Gelatine is truly beneficial for skin, joints and bones. You can easily add gelatine in your diet with this recipe, without affecting its texture and taste. Since we are going to use grainy gelatine like we use in soups, smoothies and other baked food products. Just mix it in warm water or other liquid using in the recipe.
- Bacon : 6 slices
- Egg whites : 3
- Coconut flour (30 g) : 1/4 cup
- Purified granular gelatin (like this) (15 ml) : 1 tablespoon
- Water (120 ml) : 1/2 cup
- Unsalted butter, melted (30 ml) : 2 tablespoons
- Finely chopped chives (30 ml) : 2 tablespoons
- Optional: Full-fat sour cream for topping : 1/2 cup
Heat the pan on medium heat and cook bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan, chop or crumple it and set aside for later use. Leave the bacon fat in the pan.
Crack two egg whites in a bowl and whisk with hand blender or electric mixture to form soft peaks. And set aside. (You can also use full eggs but it will make the pancakes less fluffy and a little heavy!)
Take another large bowl and add almond flour, bacon, butter, gelatine, and chives. Mix well with water and add egg whites. Carefully fold the whites with bacon mixture to make a lumpy and thick mixture.
Turn on the flame and heat the bacon fat over low heat. Pour in 2tbsps. Of the batter in the pan and gently smooth the batter to form like a pancake. You can also use a biscuit cutter to make a fine round shape of the pancake. Cook each pancake for 3-4 minutes or until fully done and serve hot.
You can also make them like buns for sandwiching them with sausages and eggs.
