Breakfast Week: Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes
Pancakes...What's not to like? Why not take those pancakes and shake them up a bit? What better combo than peanut butter and bananas? These pancakes are just perfect all by themselves, or topped with a little butter and maple syrup. Pair that with a couple of slices of bacon and you've got a perfect sometimes breakfast that really hits the spot!
What You'll Need:
2 cups of unbleached all purpose flour (Note: You can use white whole wheat flour if you like.)
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 cup of peanut butter powder
1/4 cup of safflower oil
1/4 cup of honey
2 bananas, mashed
1 1/3 cups of buttermilk
Heat a large pan or a griddle over medium heat until heated through. Test it by dropping a few drops of water on the pan. It should sizzle when it's ready.
While the pan is heating in a large glass bowl mix together flour, sea salt, baking powder, baking soda and peanut butter powder until completely incorporated. Add oil, honey, mashed banana, eggs and buttermilk and stir until totally mixed.
Once the pan is ready brush it with oil or spray it with non-stick spray and ladle batter into rounds on the hot surface. Cook, flipping once until browned on both sides and done through. This usually takes 3-5 minutes depending on the size of your pancake.
Notes: The riper the banana, the stronger the banana flavor. You could also add a cup of chopped honey roasted peanuts for a bit of a crunch.

Yum, pancakes and bacon is my family's all time favorite breakfast!!! I so wish my children would let us shake things up a bit and try all these flavored pancakes!
Btw, I made some cinnamon syrup for them to top their Eggo waffles with and it was very good. I didn't blog about it but would be more than happy to get you the recipe.
