Bright and early tomorrow morning, we’re headed to a five-hour intensive course on all things baby. Which is good, because neither of us know anything. Like, seriously, we’d struggle at this if our daughter was born tomorrow. We NEED this. So, I’m excited to learn, but also terrified of how much I don’t already know… and how much I really need to pay attention!
I get bored easily. I don’t have a lot of patience for classes. And I tend to daydream about food.
A pile of pancakes and a cup of hot coffee cures all, right?
Starting our morning off with a fluffy, cinnamon-spiced stack of these peanut butter and banana pancakes will make everything okay. Pancakes tend to have that power. And, it’s just a fact that peanut butter and banana make the world go ‘round. On toast, they’re my favorite protein-packed snack. But nestled inside pancakes, topped with butter and drizzled with maple syrup? Fuggetaboutit!
You’ll love these super soft whole wheat pancakes for lazy weekends that call for something special. They make a big batch, but feel free to freeze the leftover pancakes in a re-sealable container or plastic bag. Just slip sheets of waxed paper in between them so they don’t stick together.
Have a happy weekend… and wish us luck (we’re gonna need it)!
Whole Wheat Peanut Butter-Banana Pancakes
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 cups milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 ripe medium banana, mashed
- In a large bowl whisk together flours, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside. In a separate medium bowl, lightly beat milk, egg, peanut butter and mashed banana together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Let sit for 5 minutes.
- Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium high heat. Lightly grease with butter or nonstick cooking spray.
- Pour pancake batter 1/4 cup at a time into skillet and cook pancakes until bubbles form on top. Flip pancakes, cook for 1 minute, then remove to a plate. Place in a warm oven until ready to serve. Repeat as necessary.
- Serve with maple syrup and additional banana slices, if desired.
These look SO good! Good luck with all things baby, I’m sure it’ll be fun! x
These are such delicious looking pancakes Georgia, just right to fuel you through a day of learning about babies!
Why am I not having this for breakfast?! Looks delicious, Georgia!
I was terrible in our prenatal class, alternating between grossed out, laughing, and refusing to role-play labour :P It’s great fun though :) These pancakes are amazing and would be a huge hit with my family!
I love the flavour of these – so yummy!
I’d never leave the breakfast table if this plate was put in front of me! Gorgeous!
I hope your class was productive and now you know everything ’bout birthin’ babies. :)
We love anything that involves peanut butter and bananas! These pancakes look fantastic.
PB + pancakes….this is my weekend dream come true!
I could eat breakfast for every meal and these pancakes would certainly be on the menu!
Wow these looks amazing!! Such a delicious breakfast treat!!
I love them already. They look so good!
Such a fun breakfast treat. I love that you’ve added some protein to these pancakes to keep from going into a carb coma – that’s what usually happens to me when I eat pancakes. Love these!
Holy Yum! These look amazing! I love the healthy breakfasts to kick start my day.
There’s nothing like a stack of pancakes – love the whole wheat, peanut butter and bananas!
good luck at the class!! I was raised around babies and am a babysitter by profession but…dude…there’s SO MUCH I don’t know! so yeah…eesh intimating. I feel like people always figure it out though so don’t worry :)
and I LOOOOVElovelovelove these pancakes. They look so fluffy and delicious-and I love that they’re whole wheat! a wholesome tasty breakfast, hooray!
I’d be so happy if these could be breakfast everyday! They look amazing!
These look so fluffy and delicious!
I wish I had some peanut butter at home.. I would have made them for breakfast..
Glad you enjoyed these! Definitely one of my favorite weekend recipes!
Peanut butter and banana are a great combination for pancakes. My kids would each chow down on a big stack of them. :)
Good luck at the class! I feel like these pancakes would just about make anything better…even five hours of baby lectures!
I tend to dream about food too and 5 hours of lecturing about babies I would need a substantial breakfast to tie me over and your whole wheat pancakes are the perfect cure.
Best of luck with the classes – I’m sure you’ll be such wonderful parents!
And yeah, it happens to me all the time, the daydreaming about pancakes in chemistry class thing oops. But when is it that I’m not daydreaming of pancakes? Never. Especially if they look as good as these ones. The pb + banana combo is a killer one!
I hope you learned lots at your class today!!! I tend to daydream about food and recipes constantly so I know how that goes! And these pancakes look delicious! I haven’t made pancakes in ages!
hope that class goes well! what a great breakfast beforehand :)
Banana pancakes and a bit of syrup is an amazing Sunday breakfast. Unfortunately this dish is high in calories but it is extremely tasty! Whole wheat pancakes is something new. I have never tried them!
I love banana pancakes as is, but make it whole wheat + peanut butter? I want a stack, please! Hope the baby class went well :)
What an exciting time in your life!!! I have 4 kiddos and can still remember all those feelings and apprehensions from my first baby. Just joined your blog & look forward to updates! Sending you lots of love!
These pancakes will make any day brighter and better!! Even will be perfect fro dinner. I hope the classes went well. There will always be lots to learn but you will always know what is best once your little one is here :)
Yes you are absolutely right Pancakes have THE Power to make all things right. Laughing. This recipe is outrageous. Thank you for posting it. Good luck with the classes!!!!!!
These look so fluffy and delicious, Georgia, and I hope your class went well. Having a baby is very nerve-racking — I couldn’t even believe they were letting me take mine home after only a day and a half! :)
I hope the course went well! :)
And whole wheat pancakes?! Totally my kind of morning. Just toss in some of that mac and cheese and I’m good for the morning. No. The day! I’ll take the pot.
These look perfect! I just had dinner but these are making me think I’m hungry :).
My weekend needs these pancakes, love!
These were delicious! They are definitely best as smaller pancakes (the 1/4 cup size), a pan-sized pancake was a little too much to handle. Great recipe, glad I stumbled across it!
