Tastic Sweet Banana Bacon Walnut Pancakes



Ingredients for the topping:

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1tbsp Tastic Sweet*
2 bananas, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
1/2 cup walnuts
4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

Ingredients for the pancakes:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 large egg beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tbsp. Tastic Sweet*
1 banana, peeled and mashed
2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
1 tablespoon butter, room temperature, divided



  1. To make the topping, in a pot, on medium heat melt the butter, brown sugar, and water. When it comes to a boil, after about a minute, continue to boil for 1-2 more minutes or until it’s slightly thicker and syrupy.

  2. Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla, Tastic Sweet, bananas, walnuts, and bacon. Add a sprinkle of salt to taste. 

  3. For the pancakes, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Beat together the buttermilk, egg, vanilla, Tastic Sweet and oil and pour into the flour mixture.

  4. Add the mashed banana and crumbled bacon, and stir until a thick batter is formed. 

  5. Preheat the oven to 200°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat a skillet on medium and add a dab of the softened butter to the skillet to grease it.

  6. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes on one side, until the edges are slightly set and bubbles begin to form in batter. Gently flip the pancake and cook on the other side a couple more minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Place cooked pancake in the oven, and continue for the rest of the batter, adding a dab of butter to grease the skillet when necessary.

  7. To serve, stack 3-4 pancakes on each plate and cover with the topping.
