Good Wednesday to you!!
I love peanut butter and bananas together. It's one of my favorite "comfort" foods. But, it's not really a comfort food since it's pretty healthy for you, shhh . . . don't say that too loud.
So last night, I was craving something different for breakfast and thought - why not peanut butter pancakes? Then I thought, why not add honey to it? And add bananas on top?
So - here is my little creation. (granted, I will give credit to the little internetty web thing where I looked at several pancake recipes, which enabled me to come up with my own recipe)

Peanut Butter & Honey Pancakes
Adapted recipe by Kitchen Groovy
1 C all purpose flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 T sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 C plus 4 T milk, plus extra to thin, if needed
1/2 C creamy peanut butter, melted
1/4 C honey
2 T oil
sliced bananas, if desired
chopped pecans, if desired
Preheat a griddle. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Slowly mix in egg, milk, peanut butter, honey and oil until combined. Add a little extra milk if batter feels too thick. Let mixture sit 5 minutes. Melt butter on griddle and move around to coat entire griddle. Pour about 1/4 C of batter per pancake to form 5" pancakes. The batter will spread as it cooks. Fill griddle w/o crowding pancakes. Flip when air pockets start to pop on the top and a quick peak on the underside reveals a golden pancake. Repeat with remaining butter and batter.
Serve with bananas and maple syrup. Top with pecans, if desired.
