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 cringed 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
This combination never fails to please. Whether it’s just banana topped with a little peanut butter or a smoothie, it’s hard to go wrong with this crowd pleasing flavor combo.
The great thing about 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. Even though I love cooking and baking with flour, I know the gluten free option is needed for some. So I decided to see how things turned out if I eliminated flour. My trial succeeded and I now have gluten free pancakes thanks to the glue of peanut butter, banana and eggs. I still love flour 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!
