  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Arrange bacon slices on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and crisp, about 15 minutes; drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. Combine maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; cook and stir until sauce is smooth and heated through, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and keep sauce warm.
  5. Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, egg, and olive oil together in a separate bowl; slowly pour into flour mixture and whisk until batter is smooth.
  6. Heat a griddle or flat skillet over medium heat; spread melted butter on surface to coat. Arrange bacon slices about 2 inches apart on the hot griddle, working in batches if needed.
  7. Slowly pour batter over each bacon strip; cook until bubbles start to form on top and edges are dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until other side is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve with warm maple-peanut butter sauce.

I'm giving this 5 stars for one reason: my kids LOVED it. They thought the pancakes and bacon together was awesome, and they loved the syrup/sauce. If I were to rate this for the adults in my family, it would be a 4-star recipe. It was good, but nothing special. I'd just as soon eat my bacon on the side. The only modifications I made were: 1) I added a little extra flour to the batter because I thought it was too runny, and 2) I cut the long bacon strips in have and made regular round pancakes around each. Thanks for the fun idea.

Didn't care to much for the sauce.

FLEURDELISAHOLIC - I found your review offensive - was it really necessary to make the comment about stupidity? Shame on you.

I just made this for everyone this morning and everyone really enjoyed it. I did, however, add a wee bit more flour (as another reviewer suggested). We really liked the syrupy peanut buttery sauce - yummy! For the person who gave this recipe 5 stars without even trying it YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF. You can't give a rating and review when you haven't even made the recipe and just because it sounds like something you've had before and brings back happy memories, shame on you for your stupidity.

Doubled the pancake recipe to feed four of us Two being teenagers

Made it this morning with rave reviews, for the syrup. Really that's what this recipe is about. I didn't measure (didn't want to clean measuring cups of pb), but just added the syrup ingredients to the pot, until it was the consistency I wanted. I used my own (whole wheat) pancake mix, and did cook the bacon on the side (picky eaters). But we ended up dipping the bacon in syrup or crumbling it and adding it to the top of the pancakes. Thanks for sharing! Will definitely make again.

Cutting the bacon strips in half made the pancake size more manageable. Combined with the peanut butter syrup this was delicious!!!
