avocado & bacon pancakes

avocado and bacon pancakesrecipe by Chef Delahna Flagg
An aphrodisiac twist on a classic, this pancake recipe combines two of Delahna’s favorite sensual ingredients: avocados and bacon. Although they are more decadent than your typical flapjack, these pancakes do offer the added nutritional benefits of vitamin E from the avocado and protein from the yogurt and bacon.

Avocado & Bacon Pancakes? It’s practically a B.L.A.T… add a minced salad of lettuce and roasted/lightly sweetened tomatoes and you have the ultimate bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato extravaganza. Add an egg, and you've got a spectacular brunch.
  • 2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp agave sweetener or brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C plain yogurt
  • ½ Avocado
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1 tbsp water
  1. Sift together all the dry items (flour, baking powder, and agave/brown sugar).
  2. Mash the avocado with the yogurt. Add in the egg and water. Combine.
  3. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry. Set aside.
  4. Cook the bacon in the pan only halfway to crispy. Save the fat for cooking the pancakes (or, if you are ‘behaving’ remove the fat and use a light oil).
  5. Mince up the bacon and fold it into the mix. Be certain it is well combined.
  6. Heat oil in a large saute pan. Cook as you would any pancakes.
