Banana Bread and Bacon Pancake Roll(GF and Wheat Version)

Leftover Bacon + an idea for Banana Bread Pancakes= Yummy Sunday Morning!!
I used this recipe as a base.

Of course if you dont want to do the roll up, this recipe is fantastic for "regular" pancakes too! (Put a sprinkle of crumbled bacon on top of the pancake batter as you put them on the griddle, fantastic!)

1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 TB tapioca starch
2 tsp xanthan gum
3 cups flour(all purpose, whole wheat pastry, or any combo you like)

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ground flax (optional)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2-2 cups milk
1 1/2 TB vanilla extract
4 large overripe bananas
2 TB coconut oil(butter is fine)
7-8 slices crisp cooked bacon

3/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Line  a 13 x 18 jelly roll pan with parchment paper,(I didnt do this and I had a MUCH harder time rolling it, parchment paper will make it ALOT easier LOL) spray it lightly with cooking spray and preheat oven to 350

In a bowl combine flour(s) with brown sugar, flax, baking powder, salt , cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well and set aside.

Mash bananas well add in vanilla and coconut oil and 1 cup milk...mix all in very well

add to the dry mixture and add enough milk to make the batter well moistened and on the runnier side, amount of milk will vary depending on the flours you use.

Pour into the jelly roll pan and shake around gently to make it even and into the corners of the pan.

Place cooked bacon evenly spaced on the top of the batter.

Bake in preheated oven 25-30 minutes until cooked through.(toothpick comes out clean)

While its cooking mix up the topping, combine all in a pan over medium heat and mix well, simmer gently until thickened(5-10 minutes depending on the type of syrup you use, 100% is alot thinner), remove from heat and set aside

When the pancake is done, allow to cool in pan for a few moments. With the parchment paper gently remove it from the pan and place on a flat surface.

Pour 1/3 cup of the maple syrup mixture over the bacon

Starting from the short end roll gently removing the parchment paper as you go(do this slowly and gently, to prevent cracking....

Slice evenly and serve with more Maple Topping and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
