Paleo Apple Bacon Pancakes

I’ll be honest, I don’t love pancakes. They are good from time to time, but I will always prefer something savory (eggs, always) over sweet for breakfast so I usually end up choosing something else. That is… until I made these sweet and savory apple bacon pancakes. Who knew all it took for me to love pancakes was to add some bacon in it? But let’s be real… bacon can make anything better!

So if you are looking for an easy and delicious brunch recipe for the weekend, I highly recommend you try these paleo apple bacon pancakes. It has such great flavors and you can top it off with whatever you like, depending on your style.

I added a little bit of maple syrup and a pat of butter, but I think they would also be delicious with some plain yogurt, coconut cream, or even applesauce to bring out the apple flavor even more. I’m drooling just thinking about it!

    I’m sitting next to my husband and immediately showed this to him and said “we NEED to make these this weekend, ok hon?”. He took one look and said “yep”. So you know what we’ll be doing 🙂
