peanut butter banana pancakes on kiddiebites silicone plate

I have always loved the creamy texture and sticky sweetness of peanut butter growing up and to be honest nothing has changed much coming in to adulthood. I used to put it on everything. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were my jam in elementary school (pun intended) and I could never get that metal clasp on my lunch box open fast enough. BUT I must say there was always something special about the peanut butter and banana duo that just clicked. So Besides making a boring ol’ pb & nana sandwich why not pull in another childhood fav to vamp it up…


I would like to call pancakes to the stand.

As a kid, hotcakes were a rare treat in my house. I remember running to the kitchen after waking up to the sweet aroma in the air. Just the thought of warm syrup to each cake made my mouth water. Unfortunately, the nostalgic memory does not outweigh the calorie intake involved in enjoy ing a nice pile of pancakes. As a new mother of two I can’t afford to have an abundance of calories like I used to. 
Now, these pancakes on their own only have a hint of peanut butter but when you add on the peanut butter syrup and sliced banana they will shine. 
So our hero for this recipe is to keeping it lower fat is…
PB Fit peanut butter powder
PBfit Peanut Butter Powder by BetterBody Foods  (say that 5 times fast )
Using it instead of regular peanut butter cuts the fat by 90% and adds a great source protein. The whole batch of batter is 33 g protein and 9.5 g of fat! You could easily have every “Pancake Sunday” without regret.

These are kid approved and are great for a make ahead hectic work week. Just place them on a cookie sheet and freeze for 30 minutes then you can pl them in a resealable bag for no more than 2 months. Whenever you’re in need of a quick fix reheat in them in the microwave and voila! instant breakfast. Mine turnout soft and warm about 25 seconds for every 2 pancakes.(depending on the wattage) So start out minimal time if needed and increase the time slowly. Last thing you want is chewy tough pancakes.
