In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: whole wheat pastry flour, flax seed meal, baking powder and salt.
Add yogurt, eggs, applesauce, almond milk and vanilla extract and stir until well incorporated.
Pre-heat griddle to medium-high and spray with cooking spray. Add pancake batter ¼ cup at a time. When bubbles begin to form around the edges, sprinkle pancakes with a teaspoon or so of crumbled bacon pieces.
Flip pancakes and cook another minute or so until browned on the other side. Continue until all of the pancake batter has been used and serve with pure maple syrup.
To quickly cook bacon, microwave on a plate lined with paper towel for 4-5 minute or until crispy. Be sure to lay paper towel below and above the bacon to avoid splatters.
