Banana and Peanut Butter Pancakes
I read through the reviews as usual. I read that they did not have a strong enough peanut flavor, then I read that it had an overpowering peanut flavor. However, I found this recipe to be a perfect balance. My husband said they were the best pancakes he had ever had. I served mine topped with some warm, homemade applesauce.
I doubled the recipe, with the only variance being that I added a little extra salt to make up for the lack of it in my natural peanut butter, added a little extra vanilla, and substituted whole wheat flour for half of the all purpose.
Cutting the peanut butter into the dry ingredients was a clever method of incorporating it evenly. Although some reviewers suggested mashing the banana, I am glad I chose to chop them into extra small pieces as more per the recipe. The little bites of banana added some bursts of moist, flavorful goodness that made for a nice contrast with the peanut flavored pancake.
I had no issues with it seeming too watery nor did the banana chunks sink to the bottom as another reviewer mentioned.
