Banana Pancakes with Peanut Butter Sauce

I love pancakes. I’ve not yet met a version that I didn’t like, but banana pancakes are my absolute favorite. These pancakes are packed with banana flavor, topped with bananas and drizzled with peanut butter sauce. Yum! Here’s how to make them yourself. I recommend you do it immediately. Your tummy will thank you.

Coincidentally, one of my favorite songs is Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson.

Banana pancakes with peanut butter sauce - These pancakes are Ah-mazing!

Here’s everything you need. I think. I’m terrible about the ingredients pictures

Ingredients for banana pancakes with peanut butter sauce

For the pancakes:

  • 1 3/4 c. self-rising flour (if using all-purpose flour, add 1/2 tsp. salt)
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 c. milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • pinch of cinnamon

To start, combine your flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Sift the flour first to make them extra fluffy!

Now, combine all the liquids and the mashed banana. You could do this in a bowl, but I find it easier to mix and mash everything in a large baggie instead.

Clip a hole in one edge of the baggie and squeeze it into the flour mixture. Stir until combined. It will be lumpy and a little thick.

Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Pour pancake batter into the pan, using 1/4 c. for each pancake. Wait until the top is bubbly, flip and cook until golden brown on each side.

For the peanut butter sauce:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 3/4 c. water

The peanut butter sauce is super simple. Just add all the ingredients to a small saucepan and cook until boiling. Pour over pancakes while the mixture is still thin. It thickens as it cools, as you can see in the first picture in this post. It was a little too thick to drizzle by that point.

Top pancakes with bananas and peanut butter sauce or maple syrup (or both)!
