I participated in Mom Blog Tour Natural Products Expo West (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Back to Nature products to facilitate my review, but my opinions and creative content are my own.
I’ll be honest, I’ve never given much thought to the syrup I grab at the store. I’ve always used that same old brand, time and time again. I’ve never given it a second thought. That was until I met the Crown® Maple products at Natural Products Expo last month. Crown Maple and I had an instant connection from their various flavors of organic syrup to their maple cayenne hot sauce. I even tried a shot of their smooth Crown Maple Bourbon! It was just as tasty as it sounds!
Since Crown Maple sent me such a big selection of their products which I also got to try first hand at their booth, I knew I wanted to incorporate a few of them into a special recipe.
I used the Crown® Maple Sugar and Maple Cayenne Hot Sauce to make Jalapeño & Bacon Cornmeal Pancakes! Yes, you read that right and they are mouth watering! I topped them with the Crown Maple® Applewood Smoked Organic Maple Syrup but you can use any flavor you like. Crown Maple has a large selection of flavored syrup!
Watch the video below or scroll on down for the full recipe to make these for yourself! They taste a lot like cornbread but pancake style and they’re really perfect when topped with the bacon, jalapeños and syrup. It’s the perfect hearty breakfast for your family!
