The last 3 times I’ve made these peanut butter banana flourless pancakes I heard the overwhelming statement from all three of my boys, “Mama, you have to put these on your web-site!” That’s the biggest compliment I can ever get cooking for my family. If the food I make is taste approved by 3 picky eaters (kids, ya know…) then I think I have a pretty good shot at them being liked by others. My husband did cringe the very first time I made these when I casually stated they were flourless, but once he tasted them, he was sold! He loved them as well and now they’re a hands-down favorite pancake in our home.
Peanut Butter Banana Blitz
Oh, this combination never fails to please. Whether it’s just straight up banana topped with a little peanut butter or in a smoothie, it’s hard to go wrong with this crowd pleasing flavor combo.
The other beauty of these 2 fabulous ingredients is they work great for you in the cooking department, they work like glue together, especially when it comes to flourless pancakes. They’re also a great way to add sweetness to recipes without needing to add sugar. The banana browns and kind of caramelizes when cooked making for a nice golden pancake only natural sugar.
The added sugar will only come from what you add to the top of them, but you’ll find they really don’t need much to accentuate their natural good flavor.
I have nothing against flour and am not a gluten-free eater. I am in fact a fan of all the great things flour can create in cooking and baking, but I know it’s an option needed for some so I just wanted to experiment to see how things turned out if I tried eliminating flour all together in a these pancakes. My trial succeeded and I now have this option thanks to the glue of peanut butter, banana and eggs. I still love my flour-full pancakes, but it’s cool to have this option when needed.
Also, such pancakes make for a protein rich, easy and quick pancake without the extra glucose producing carbs. I could stand to back off the flour as well once in awhile, so it’s a win-win with these yummy hot cakes!
