CANDIED BACON PANCAKES





CANDIED BACON PANCAKES
I loved this mainly because I am a huge fan of combining sweet and savory flavors, and for breakfast, especially.  Breakfast is important for many people, but for those who don't have the luxury every morning of making a fancy breakfast, keep this idea for the weekends, when you want something a little more special and different.

8 slices bacon
1/cup powdered erythritol (60 mL)
Pancakes:
4 oz regular cream cheese, softened (125 g)
3 eggs
2 tbsp coconut flour (30 mL)
2 tbsp vanilla whey protein (30 mL)
1 tbsp certified gluten-free oat flour (15 mL)
1 tsp baking powder (5 mL)
1 tsp gelatin (5 mL)
1/tsp vanilla extract (1 mL)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).  Line a cookie sheet with foil.

Place bacon on foil. Sprinkle bacon with erythritol.  Bake 30 minutes, turning the bacon after 15 minutes. Depending, you may need to cook your bacon longer.  The bacon will crisp up more as it cools.  Break or cut into little bits.  Keep some aside for garnishing the pancakes.


Pancakes: In food processor, process cream cheese.  Add eggs, coconut flour, vanilla whey protein, oat flour, baking powder, gelatin and vanilla extract; process.  Stir in bacon bits. Drop batter in 2 tbsp (30 mL) amounts onto lightly greased, nonstick frying pan (if you have metal pancake rings, they will keep the pancakes a uniform size and shape) over low medium heat.  Cook until bubbles form and carefully flip when the topside is a little more set.  Make sure the pan is not too hot and reduce heat when necessary.  Serve with sugar-free pancake syrup and garnish the pancakes with a few bacon bits.
