Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes – fluffy pancakes filled with creamy peanut butter and diced banana. Perfect for a relaxing weekend morning or prepping ahead for easy breakfasts all week!
How’s the time change treating you?
Won’t lie, I slept until 9:42 yesterday morning.
Can we talk about how awesome it is to have kids that can pour their own cereal and entertain themselves for a little while? I feel for all of you with tiny ones.
It was also really nice to have daylight for so long! It was almost 8 by the time the sun finally faded. You know what that means?
Food bloggers are no longer cooking dinner at 2 pm! Yay sunlight!
Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes!
Like I mentioned this weekend, the kids are officially on Spring Break and I’m officially not leaving the house until it’s over.
(Don’t judge me – you try going anywhere with 3 boys!)
So in an effort to avoid the grocery store, I have breakfast for dinner planned for several nights this week. And these Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes are definitely on the menu! They use ingredients I always have on hand, they take no time at all to cook up, and my kids are obsessed with them.
I mean, what’s not to love about peanut butter and bananas?
How To Make Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes
These are incredibly simple pancakes, I promise.
- Combine dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, etc)
- Melt together butter, peanut butter, and milk until smooth
- Pour butter mixture over dry ingredients and combine
- Add eggs and vanilla and stir until combined
- Add in diced banana
- Cook in a nonstick skillet (I use my griddle and it makes pancakes so much easier!) over medium heat until the pancakes are bubbly and edges look browned
- Repeat with the remaining pancake batter
Can You Freeze Panakes?
Yes! Pancakes freeze wonderfully.
Let the pancakes cool completely before packing them for freezing. You want to freeze them individually so they don’t freeze together. Do this by laying pancakes flat and not touching on a baking sheet. Pop in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until frozen. From there you can package the pancakes in ziploc bags, making sure to squeeze out as much air as possible.
To reheat, let the pancakes thaw overnight in the fridge and crisp up in the toaster. If you don’t have time to thaw overnight, just put them in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until thawed. You can crisp them in the toaster once thawed, if desired.
Pancakes will be fine in the freezer for up to 3 months.
