Peanut Butter & Banana Pancakes

Top of the morning to you! I remember Saturday mornings when I was a kid waking up to cartoons and a big breakfast. My parents always cooked a nice breakfast for me and my sister considering its the most important meal of the day. Growing up in Georgia (the south) every meal is the most important meal of the day. Everyone loves to EAT! Its a pretty common deal to talk about what your eating for lunch and dinner while your eating breakfast. HA! I woke up feeling like a kid this Saturday morning and decided pancakes it is but not just any pancakes, Banana & Peanut Butter Pancakes! YUM!
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 small banana, peeled and chopped
Combine flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Mix in the peanut butter until the texture resembles cornmeal. Add milk and vanilla; stir just until blended. Stir in the banana pieces. The batter is not as thick as other pancake batter I’ve made and it has a different consistency because of the chunks of banana so they don’t look perfectly round in your pan.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Spoon batter onto the skillet, using approximately 2 tablespoons to form each silver dollar pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides and serve!
They are lightly sweet pancakes with just a hint of flavor from the banana and peanut butter which makes the perfect combination. You can drizzle with a light syrup or they have the right amount of flavor you can eat alone. I of course drizzle because to me whats a pancake with syrup? Blah
