  1. Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir apples, 1 tablespoon sugar, and cinnamon in the hot oil until apples are slightly softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
  2. Whisk milk, butter, egg, bourbon, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Sift all-purpose flour, oat flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into milk mixture until batter is well mixed; fold in apples and bacon.
  3. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon canola oil in a skillet over medium heat; drop batter, about 1/2 cup per pancake, onto the griddle, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip pancake and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 5 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I used a mix of firm fresh apples and only sautéed them until they were well coated with the cinnamon sugar. Use any of your favorite fried apple spices such as ginger or nutmeg. Also you can make your own oat flour by grinding old fashioned uncooked oatmeal in the food processor. I make mine in batches and freeze the unused portion.

Yum! Added more bacon; also instead of oat flour, I used regular oatmeal and soaked it in the liquid ingredients for awhile.

I ground oatmeal to make the flour in my food processor as suggested by one reviewer. I doubled the bourbon and reduced the milk just a bit, with great results for the family bourbon lovers. We...

One of the best pancake recipes I've ever made. Luckily I had a shooter of bourbon in my fridge from a baby shower a while ago and was able to make this. Super deelish!

Wow! This recipe is amazing! Sweet and delicious. My wife and both loved them. I added a little bit more bourbon to the recipe (1tbsn - apples, 1 tbsn wet ingredients) and used quick oats that I...

These are really good. Chop the apples very small as there is not a lot of batter. It took just about 1 1/4 apples to make 2 cups so I chopped and sauteed the rest of my second apple like in the...

With Bacon and Bourbon how can you go wrong! My husband really liked these pancakes, his only comment was that they needed more bacon. Just a note.... these are a heavier pancakes with a thick b...
