Bacon Deprived Abby Lab

Bacon Blueberry Pancakes.

Cook 6 slices of bacon, blot with a paper towel and chop. Thaw 1 cup of frozen blueberries, rinse and pat dry with paper towels.

In a small bowl mix, 3/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons of milk and 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar (I use Braggs) Let sit for a few minutes.

In another bowl mix 1 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 Tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder (I use Hain sodium free) and a pinch of Cardamom (or nutmeg if you don't have Cardamom).

Note:  To Make gluten-free replace flour with King Arthur Gluten-free flour and add 1/2 teaspoon Xanthan Gum.

To milk mixture add a splash of vanilla, 1 egg whisked and 2 and 1/2 Tablespoons of melted butter (add in very slowly while whisking).

Add wet ingredients to dry, mixing JUST until combined then gently fold in blueberries and bacon. Cook on a hot griddle. (or better yet, get your spouse or partner to cook for you).

Abby can't do grains but she did get a piece of bacon so she is quite happy.

  2. Abby! Are you okay? I'm sorry that your momma is so MEAN and CRUEL and HEARTLESS as to deprive you of bacon!

    1. I am ok Matilda. Mom gave me a piece of bacon and some grain free peanut butter treats from Chewy. Those were tasty!

  3. You always have the best delicious food at your house!

    1. Mom works from home 95% of the time so she can prep stuff during her lunch break. When Dad's at work she just does salads and smoothies or a Icelandic yogurt and an apple. Otherwise Mom would need her own zip code. Abby Lab
