I love weekends for a number of reasons, but one of them is the ability to make a nice breakfast/brunch. Who doesn’t like lazy mornings and pancakes? I try to switch up the type of pancakes I make so that we have a little variety. I contemplated making pumpkin ones this morning, but then peanut butter banana came to mind. I didn’t have a recipe so I just tweaked my favorite plain pancake recipe and came up with this. While I would have added chocolate chips (we didn’t have any on hand) they are still quite tasty as is, and the dogs appreciated that they could have mini pupcakes since there was no chocolate in them!
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup natural peanut butter, melted
- 2 medium bananas, thinly sliced
1. Add vinegar to milk and set aside. Meanwhile, mix all dry ingredients. Whisk egg and then peanut butter into milk mixture and stir the wet into dry ingredients until there are no lumps.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray or butter (or if you’re like me, you have an awesome nonstick pan you can just leave alone). Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet. Place banana slices on the pancakes and gently press in. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
