  • For The Pancakes
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ripe banana in this case those mushy black/brown spots are a plus
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • For The Peanut Butter Sauce
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup water


  • To Make The Pancakes
  • Combine all of the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, add the banana and wet ingredients, mashing and mixing them together until all  are evenly combined.
  • Combine the dry and wet ingredient together in one bowl, stirring until evenly incorporated. It will be lumpy and somewhat thick.
