  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped into small pieces
  • Maple syrup, for serving


  1. Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Pan:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a mini muffin pan with cooking spray or line it with paper liners.
  1. Prepare the Pancake Batter:
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg, then add the milk and maple syrup. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the batter may be slightly lumpy.
  • Gently fold in the chopped bacon pieces until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  1. Fill the Muffin Cups:
  • Using a spoon or a small cookie scoop, fill each muffin cup in the prepared pan with pancake batter, filling them about three-quarters full.
  1. Bake the Pancake Bites:
  • Transfer the muffin pan to the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the pancake bites are golden brown and cooked through. They should spring back when lightly pressed.
  1. Cool and Serve:
  • Allow the Maple Bacon Pancake Bites to cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  1. Serve with Maple Syrup:
  • Serve the pancake bites warm, drizzled with additional maple syrup if desired, for an extra burst of sweetness.
