Peanut Butter & Honey Pancakes

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 egg
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.
