Most of us love to splurge on some good, old-fashioned pancakes now and then. But wouldn’t you like to indulge in this classic breakfast food more often, and without the guilt? Well, with these peanut butter banana pancakes in your recipe arsenal, you can! Made with white whole wheat flour, Cabot Whey Protein, ground flax seed, peanut butter, and bananas, these pancakes pack both protein and flavor. After you’ve made them, feel free to share the recipe with friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.
To make 3 medium-size pancakes, begin by gathering all your ingredients, as listed below. Start by whisking together the flour, whey protein powder, flax seed, powdered peanut butter, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, combine the banana, egg white, milk, and Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt, and mix well. Add to dry ingredients and mix until combined.
Place a griddle (or nonstick skillet) over medium high heat. Once pan is heated, spoon batter onto griddle (or nonstick skillet) and cook until the pancake edges begin to set. Then flip and cook until done.
In a small bowl, combine peanut butter and maple syrup and microwave on high for 30 to 45 seconds, or until peanut butter melts. Stir together and drizzle over pancakes. If desired, top pancakes with fresh sliced bananas.
