It’s Monday. But also a holiday, so I made you breakfast!
Peanut butter and bananas!
These are so amazing!
I think it would be totally appropriate to add chocolate chips to these if you want!
Don’t you think these are perfect for a lazy day?
When you want to lay around on the couch.
And watch movies all day.
We can’t very well have you getting hungry.
Then you would have to get up off the couch.
And venture into the kitchen.
You might even have to stick your head in the fridge and forage around for food.
Then you would miss part of the movie.
OMG! Then you might have to rewind!
That would be unacceptable.
So I made you Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes.
I hope you like them.
Enjoy your holiday!
Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes
Adapted from Williams-Sonoma
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 ripe bananas, divided
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup of peanut butter
1/4 cup of powdered sugar
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
Smash 1 banana with a fork in another bowl until as smooth as possible. Add buttermilk, vanilla and eggs and combine.
Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter and add with banana mixture to the flour mixture. Stir with a rubber spatula until combined. Be sure not to over mix and it will be somewhat lumpy.
Slice 1 banana and fold into pancake batter.
Heat a griddle to 400 F. When hot, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter on directly on the griddle. When butter is melted, spoon batter onto the griddle in about 1/4 cup piles. They should be spaced far enough apart to leave room to expand.
Cook until they bubble on top and turn brown on the bottom (about 2-3 minutes). Flip with a spatula and cook the other side until golden brown (about another 2-3 minutes).
Repeat with the remaining batter.
Slice the 3rd banana.
Spread some peanut butter on each pancake, top with sliced bananas and powdered sugar.
Note: This should result in 12 pancakes, but I was a little heavy handed with the pouring and ended up with 11.
