Bacon and Maple Syrup Pancakes

This recipe was made at the same time as the sweet buttermilk pancakes I posted earlier. I was cooking brunch and wanted something different. I have several pancake recipes, but I remembered that I had some buttermilk left from a curry I made, and thought to myself “humm, buttermilk pancakes, I like it, lets make it keto). And so I did, and made two versions, being this one the savory version.

They came out really yummy, and I could not be happier with it. Paired with the bacon and maple syrup, they were just what I needed to give a special touch to my brunch.

    Sounds delicious, I have to try these this week! I especially love your bacon-maple syrup, as I haven’t really made that before!

    Made these today! Substituted buttermilk with raw cream and lemon juice… and next time I won’t use as much salt. Costco brand pink salt I am finding to be much saltier that sea salt. Other than that… these were FANTASTIC! Even my highly functional, son on the spectrum loves them!! Woo HOO! More ways to get him to eat KETO!
