These banana bacon pancakes are next level.  They are slightly sweet and have a hint of saltiness from the bacon.  So good!

Buttermilk pancakes are the best, but what happens if you don’t have any on hand?

How do you make buttermilk if you don’t have any?

You simply have to add a tablespoon of any type of vinegar to one cup of any type of milk.  I prefer white vinegar to one cup of unsweetened almond milk.

What is the secret to fluffy pancakes?

Let the baking powder do it’s magic!  I prefer to let my batter sit for at least 30 minutes for fluffy pancakes.

Once you place the banana and bacon, simply add the second tablespoon of batter and cook with a lid on so the middle gets cooked.  I have this T-Fal pan and it’s amazingly nonstick.

Can you meal prep pancakes?

Three for breakfast was super filling.  These would also be great to make for meal prep, and either reheat in the toaster, air fryer or microwave.
