We love pancakes! These slimming friendly Bacon and Maple Blueberry Pancakes are a perfect, filling breakfast for Pancake Day.

Despite its popularity in the US, we’d never tried bacon and maple syrup together. To be honest it wasn’t a combination that had ever taken our fancy. However, we thought we’d give it a go – and we’re glad we did! Bacon and Maple and Blueberry Pancakes have become a firm favourite of ours.

We use Ready Brek instead of traditional flour. We love the texture this gives the pancakes, and it is high fibre so it will fill you up for longer. Feel free to use an equivalent measure of oats, blitzed in a food processor. We love the convenience of Ready Brek. Anything to make mornings simpler!

in some of your pancake recipes there are 2 eggs and others there are no eggs. Why is this?

    Hi Debbie,

    It really depends on the recipe – it means there are different options for people. If a pancake recipe doesn’t use eggs, it normally relies on the binding properties of the oats to hold the pancake together ????
