Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Peanut Butter Syrup

Friday, March 11, 2011

  I don’t really have much to say about this tasty pancake recipe I found over at See Jane in the Kitchen, other than they were awesomely good and I plan on making them often. 

Bananas + Chocolate + Peanut Butter = Out-of-this-World Pancake Goodness.

The ingredients:

1-1/2 cups all purpose flour (I used white whole wheat)
3 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbs. oil
1 large egg
2 small to medium size  ripe bananas
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips tossed with 2 teaspoons flour

1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

  For pancakes, In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  In a separate bowl, mix buttermilk, vanilla, oil, and egg.  Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until just combined (do not overmix).  Mash bananas with a fork and fold in mashed bananas and chocolate chips.  (Tossing the chocolate chips with the flour will prevent them from all sinking to the bottom of the bowl.  Heat skillet to medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray or butter.  Add pancake batter by the 1/4 cupfuls.  When batter bubbles, flip pancake and cook the other side.

For syrup, in a small microwaveable bowl, combine peanut butter and maple syrup.  Microwave on high for 1 minute.  Stir to combine.  Serve over hot pancakes.

Mmmmm, I've been meaning to try these! (And I'm so glad you found another excuse to exercise your pancake photography talent!)

The peanut butter syrup idea has me drooling. I'll probably regret admitting this, but when I was little, my mom and I used to enjoy just a bowl of peanut butter with syrup. I haven't had it since I was a kid and the idea kind grosses me out sometimes even, but seeing it in different proportions and as a topping to something sounds delicious. March 11, 2011 at 3:40 PM
