There's no better way to start game day than with an amazing breakfast. For that, we love pancakes. Or in this case, some Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes. Here's a fantastic recipe:
Kitchen gadgets needed: measuring cups, spoonula, frying pan, stovetop
Ingredients (makes 6-7 pancakes):
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter for batter, plus more for serving
1 banana, sliced
Time commitment: 15-18 minutes
1. Stir the flour, baking soda, rolled oats and sugar in a large bowl.
2. Place the butter and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat it in the microwave for 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until everything has melted completely (usually just 40 seconds is enough).
3. Pour the melted butters (yes, butters) into the bowl o’ dry ingredients. Mix it in, and as you stir, add in the egg and milk.
4. Turn a burner onto medium heat, topping it with a frying pan. Once the pan’s heated for a couple minutes, pour a palm-sized amount of batter onto the pan. Top it with a few slices of banana, and once small bubbles form in the batter, flip it to the other side. When both sides are lightly golden, move the pancake to a plate and start another.
5. For added peanut butter flavor that won’t disappoint, lightly smear peanut butter between the pancakes and drizzle the top of the stack with maple syrup. The pancakes’ heat will cause the peanut butter to melt, resulting in a rich, velvety shortstack.
