Kickstart your morning with the ultimate pancake breakfast with this recipe for peanut butter banana pancakes made in a blender. These pancakes are loaded with flavor thanks to the PB and bananas, and seriously is there any other combination better than that? I was inspired by my friend from Ambitious Kitchen who has a similar recipe that looks too good to not recreate.

Ingredient Notes:

Lakanto Sweetener: My go-to sugar substitute, Lakanto is made with monk fruit which not only adds sweetness to this recipe but also is a superfood! It is also a lot sweeter than sugar which means you need way less for recipes like this. You could use either their Classic or Golden Sweetener interchangeably in this recipe.

Peanut Butter: For the healthiest choice here, opt for a natural peanut butter. Look at the ingredients and ensure they only have one simple ingredient – peanuts! Lots of PB’s are loaded with sugar!

Bananas: Use fresh or ripe bananas here but over ripe bananas always work best and are way easier to get the right consistency. This is a great way to use up the brown bananas you’ve been storing in your freezer!

Step Two: Preheat a cast-iron skillet or non stick pan on medium heat and grease, lightly, with butter or oil of choice.  Do not over grease. Using a 1/4 or 1/3 cup ladle the batter onto the pan (you can cook two at once) and cook for 3 minutes on each side.  You know they are ready to flip when the edges bubble and the center starts to puff up.

Step Three: Flip the pancakes and cook for another 2-3 minutes.  See note below on heat.

Step Four: Wipe the cast iron skillet or pan down with a paper towel, re-grease and repeat with the rest of the batter.

Step Five: Serve with fresh butter, fresh bananas, and peanut butter!

Expert Tips & FAQ: 

Heat: To avoid over browning the pancakes, start by cooking them on medium heat and decreasing heat fro medium to low.  If the pan is smoking, the heat is too high. Be patient.

How do I avoid sugar? Pancakes don’t need to be unhealthy, this recipe proves it. Use Lakanto as a sweetener substitute to allow yourself to still get the sweetness without all the unhealthy, processed sugars. 

Switch it up: Try this recipe with different nut butters and/or throw in additional fruit to the mix like blueberries or even add chocolate chips.
