Prep time

Total time
Healthy, filling pancakes made fluffy with an unexpected ingredient--peanut butter.
Serves: 3 to 4 (10 to 12 pancakes)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter
  • 1¼ cup whole milk, coconut milk, or half and half
  • 1 tablespoon cooled melted butter, plus more for the pan
  • 2 bananas, sliced very thin
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a larger bowl, whisk together the egg and peanut butter. Add the milk slowly and whisk gently so you don't splatter everywhere. Add the melted butter. Fold the dry ingredients into the web, just until barely combined.
  3. Heat a cast iron skillet or frying pan over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Add about 1 teaspoon of butter, let it melt, then use about ¼ cup of batter to make a pancake. When bubbles start to show, sprinkle each cake with ½ teaspoon chia seeds and arrange about 5 banana slices on top, then flip. Cook another 2 minutes, then remove from the pan. Repeat til there's no more batter.
  4. Serve with extra bananas on top. If the bananas are ripe, these don't really need syrup!
