I have a common pancake recipe that I modify from time to time. This one tastes fantastic with warm maple or strawberry syrup. I freeze leftover pancakes and reheat in the toaster, spreading them with strawberry or raspberry jam. Yum!

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Combine milk, banana, peanut butter, egg, canola oil, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl; pour into the flour mixture and whisk together until thoroughly mixed.

  • Ladle batter in 1/4 cup portions onto hot griddle. Cook until tiny air bubbles form on top, 2 to 5 minutes; flip and continue cooking until the bottoms are browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Keep finished pancakes warm.

The recipe calls for BAKING POWDER not baking soda. I have read a lot of reviews complaining about the amount of baking soda in the recipe. The recipe clearly states baking powder which has very different properties from baking soda. They cannot be interchanged or you will end up with a bitter tasting batter. That said I followed the recipe and it was lovely. Read More

It's a good basic recipe; however, please note that there is far too much baking soda called for in this recipe. 2 tablespoons should most likely be two teaspoons. Read More

I really enjoyed these pancakes. They were very fluffy and full of flavor. I added some chocolate chips to some of these and they were amazing! Read More

I doubled the recipe out of habit - very few pancake recipes make enough for my family - but I shouldn't have! These are very rich and everyone liked them. Next time I might use a little less peanut butter and add some cinnamon. Great flavor just the way the recipe is though! Read More

Absolutely love this recipe as does our toddler!! It is delicious as written and you can easily modify or add to it. I made them today with coconut milk instead of cow's milk I used agave syrup instead of sugar and I added some carob chips. In the past we have added cinnamon raisins cubed bananas (in addition to the banana in the mix) and they turn out fantastic each time. These don't even need syrup. Soo good!!! Read More
