I’ll be the first to admit that I use the term life changing about food too much. However, when I ate Bananas, Bacon and Pancakes together for the first time, life definitely changed. I was visiting my sister in Byron Bay and she was having a sort- of Baby Shower Breakfast before the birth of my Nephew, Jahrah.

Bacon and Roasted Banana pancakes were on the menu. With one bite I realised that it was the most incredible flavour combination ever. Salty and sweet, you can’t go wrong really, right? I’ve eaten them countless times since and this past Saturday, I made this tasty version. I stumbled upon this Banana Jam by Not Quite Nigella and I knew exactly how I wanted to eat it.

I’m loving spelt flour lately and it goes amazingly well with the Banana Jam and Bacon. The jam recipe yielded about 300mL if Banana Jam, easily doubled or tripled. And it is seriously SO yum. Can’t stop eating it!

    I also immediately fell in love with pancakes with bacon and banana after having them for the first time in New Zealand ten years ago. It’s just a magical combination, isn’t it? That banana jam sounds like a delicious twist so I’ll definitely try making it soon! Thanks for sharing your recipe x
