Bacon Cream Cheese Pancakes with Sugar Free Maple Almond Syrup

Say that title ten times fast. Phew! If you have ever seen that mathematical show, Adventure Time, one of the main characters, Jake, decides to make bacon pancakes. He sings a catchy tune while cooking - I've had the song stuck in my head since last night so I decided to make bacon pancakes myself!

But before I dive into the recipes, listen to the awesome song:

It only took 10 seconds for the song to get stuck in my head. Now it is in yours.

You're welcome.

Sugar Free Maple Almond Syrup

  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of Stevia for baking (Available at Wal Mart)
  • 1 teaspoon of Watkin's Imitation Maple Extract (Available at Wal Mart.)
  • 1 teaspoon of McCormick's Imitation Almond Extract (Available at Wal Mart)
  • 1 teaspoon of xantham gum  (I use 99 cent Hogson Mill packets from Wal Mart since xantham gum cost your first born child, and I don't use it very often any way. Last night was literally the first time I ever used xantham gum for a recipe)

    Bring the water to a boil on your stove top and whisk in stevia until combined. Add both extracts and slow the mixture to a rolling boil. Sprinkle the xanthum gum into the mixture and whisk until thoroughly incorporated. The mixture will thicken to a nectar consistency (thin syrup). I stored the syrup in a pint mason jar. Tried two tablespoons of syrup this morning and it. is. amazeballs! One jar should be enough for 16 servings of two tablespoons. 5 calories, 2 net carbs.

Bacon Cream Cheese Pancakes

  • 1 strip of bacon (or more because bacon)
  • 2 ounces of cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of stevia for baking
Dice the bacon and throw it in a skillet to cook up. Mix the cream cheese and eggs together using a hand blender or a kitchen aid stand mixer until frothy, and then add the cinnamon and stevia to the party. (Mix that shit!)

Don't do what I did and just dump the bacon into the batter. It sinks to the bottom and makes it a pain in the butt to fish up. I'd say 1/8 cup of batter should make a 6 inch pancake - it is a thin batter. Once you put the batter on the skillet, sprinkle some bacon on top and allow the pancake to cook until the edges start to brown, flip over and cook the other side until firm. Voila! BACON PANCAKE! Add 2 tablespoons of syrup and enjoy.
