How to Make Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancakes

We kept this recipe really simple by using Biquick Pancake Mix, however any pancake mix can be used or even your own homemade pancake batter. The choice is yours! Aside from pancake batter, you will need chocolate chips and bacon.

For chocolate chips, we used mini, but any kind can be used! The bacon will need to be pre-cooked and chopped up.

Once you have your ingredients gathered, go ahead and mix your pancake batter. If using Bisquick whisk together with the required milk and eggs. Then, preheat your skillet or pan over medium/low heat. Next, grease your skillet with non-stick spray or butter. Drop the batter by 1/4 cupfulls onto the hot skillet. Sprinkle with bacon and chocolate chips.

Then, once edges are dry or bubbles stop popping, flip the pancakes and let cook another minute or until golden brown. Remove from the pan and continue to cook the remaining pancake batter. Serve with butter and maple syrup.

Pancake Tips

  • While cooking pancakes, keep the finished pancakes on a plate in the microwave. The small space in the microwave will keep the pancakes warm.
  • Make multiple pancakes at a time by using a griddle or large skillet.
  • Be sure to use a flat skillet so pancakes cook evenly.
  • Store leftover pancakes in a bag or food storage container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can these pancakes be made gluten or dairy free?

Yes! To make these pancakes gluten free use Gluten Free Bisquick or your preferred gluten free pancake mix. To make these pancakes dairy free use non-dairy milk and dairy-free chocolate chips. Top with non-dairy butter or skip the butter on top.

Can I use leftover bacon for this recipe?

Yes, and there is no need to reheat it. The bacon will warm up while cooking in the pancakes. For a great shortcut buy the microwave ready bacon and cook a few slices of those for this recipe.

    So so over the “add chocolate chips to everything “ trend. Stop. Just stop. If that’s the peak of culinary creativity I’ll just muddle along on my own.

      Ditto on the bacon! Although I live alone, my family members do NOT eat meat or animal products. I personally never liked bacon. I can substitute dairy items & serve vegan bacon on the side. Let's add fruit or healthier items.
