Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or heavy-duty aluminum foil.
Drizzle the olive oil over the top of the Brussels sprouts and bacon, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Toss to coat, then spread everything evenly across the baking sheet, leaving a little space between each sprout. Roast for 25-30 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
Meanwhile, whisk the balsamic vinegar and maple syrup in a small bowl.
Once the Brussels sprouts are soft with dark roasted edges, remove the baking sheet from the oven and pour the balsamic mixture over the top of them. Toss to coat thoroughly. Serve immediately.
