- 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

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.
Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan/ griddle for each pancake.
Heat until bubbly on top, flip and cook until golden brown on each side.
To Make The Peanut Butter Sauce
Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat until boiling. Let cool slightly, and drizzle the sauce over the pancakes. Top with extra banana slices, if desired.
