Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Arrange bacon slices on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and crisp, about 15 minutes; drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Combine maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; cook and stir until sauce is smooth and heated through, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and keep sauce warm.

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, egg, and olive oil together in a separate bowl; slowly pour into flour mixture and whisk until batter is smooth.

  • Heat a griddle or flat skillet over medium heat; spread melted butter on surface to coat. Arrange bacon slices about 2 inches apart on the hot griddle, working in batches if needed.

  • Slowly pour batter over each bacon strip; cook until bubbles start to form on top and edges are dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until other side is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve with warm maple-peanut butter sauce.

Cook's Note:

The maple peanut butter sauce can be refrigerated for several days and reheated before serving

I'm giving this 5 stars for one reason: my kids LOVED it. They thought the pancakes and bacon together was awesome and they loved the syrup/sauce. If I were to rate this for the adults in my family it would be a 4-star recipe. It was good but nothing special. I'd just as soon eat my bacon on the side. The only modifications I made were: 1) I added a little extra flour to the batter because I thought it was too runny and 2) I cut the long bacon strips in have and made regular round pancakes around each. Thanks for the fun idea. Read More

I just made this for everyone this morning and everyone really enjoyed it. I did however add a wee bit more flour (as another reviewer suggested). We really liked the syrupy peanut buttery sauce - yummy! For the person who gave this recipe 5 stars without even trying it YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF. It's not fair for you to give a rating/review when you haven't even made the recipe. Read More

Very easy to make and tasty. Hubby did say the sauce was a bit too peanut butter-y. Read More

This recipe was O.K. at best. The sauce was flavorful but way too thick. I would either use less peanut butter or more syrup if I were to make it again. Also I would do what another reviewer mentioned cut bacon in half and form round pancakes. The long cakes are difficult to turn and in my first batch the bacon separated from the pancake. Very cumbersome. Also it was extremely rich and I am a HUGH sweets eater so that's saying something from me. Read More
