These bacon & maple syrup waffles combine American breakfast favorites into one sweet and savory bite. The fried eggs are optional, but we recommend not skipping out. The waffle soaks up the runny yolk creating the perfect bite. A little tip, heat the oven to about 200 F to keep the cooked waffles warm while finishing the remaining batter and cooking the fried eggs.
Overall this is a pretty decadent recipe, being filled with nut flours and with maple syrup added on top, we recommend saving this for total indulgences. Perhaps a special birthday breakfast, or a unique twist on brunch following a holiday.
Bacon & Maple Syrup Waffles with Fried Egg Recipe
SERVES: 4 , PREP: 15 min., COOK: 30 min.
- 6 slices bacon
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup full-fat coconut milk
- 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 ¾ cup almond flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- Pinch of sea salt
- Cooking fat
- 4 fried eggs (optional)
- Pure maple syrup
- Preheat your oven to 400F.
- Line a baking sheet with foil and arrange slices of bacon in a single layer.
- Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and, using tongs,transfer the bacon to a paper towel covered plate to cool.
- Once cool, blot with paper towels to remove any excess grease.
- Divide the bacon in half (3 pieces each) crumble, and keep divided. Set aside for later.
- In a medium to large bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda, and salt.
- Next, in a small bowl mix together the 2 eggs, coconut milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
- Add the wet ingredients into the dry and gently mix until well incorporated.
- Make sure the almond flour doesn’t clump, but you don’t want to over mix, or it will create a tough batter.
- Stir in ½ of the crumbled bacon (3 pieces) into the batter.
- Preheat a waffle iron.
- Lightly grease both sides of the waffle iron with your choice of cooking fat. We used a pastry brush to do so.
- Pour enough batter atop the waffle iron to cover.
- Sprinkle a little bit of remaining bacon bits over the batter and close the waffle iron.
- Cook for 3-5 minutes, until golden and easy to separate from the waffle iron.
The amount of batter and time the waffles take to cook will vary by iron. We suggest
- looking at the manual and following the instructions for best results.
- Repeat with the remaining batter and bacon.
- Serve the waffles topped with fried eggs and drizzled with maple syrup.
