We had banana and peanut butter pancake Stack
I saw this recipe from Mad Avocado and immediately thought of my children. I do however have a bit of a history with pancakes as in them going wrong at the cooking stage. This time however it worked out, though mine are probably a little thicker than they should be…coughs! mutters don’t say they look like burgers! They did however taste fantastic.
Serves 2-3 (makes about 8 pancakes)
1 tsp margarine
1 tsp olive oil
2 large ripe bananas, chopped (plus extra to serve) – (I didn’t have any bananas)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp maple syrup (plus extra to serve)
80g rolled oats (cheap porridge oats will do – not the instant kind)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
splash of milk
peanut butter (to serve)
- In a mixing bowl add the margarine, oil, bananas, lemon juice and maple syrup. Mash the mixture with a fork until the bananas are completely broken down. Crack the eggs into the bowl and beat them with the fork.
- In a separate bowl, use a hand blender to break the oats down into a flour. Mix in the salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and bicarbonate of soda.
- Create a well in the flour and add in the wet ingredients from the other bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon just until everything is wet. Leave the batter aside for 10 minutes (longer will do no harm).
- Heat a large, non-stick frying pan and grease with butter/oil/calorie spray. When the pan is hot enough (if a splash of water sizzles) add a splash of milk to the pancake batter and use a 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Cook each pancake for no more than 3 minutes on the first side, flip and cook over for another 90 seconds. Keep the cooked pancakes warm in the oven.
- Assemble the pancakes in a stack, with a thin layer of peanut butter between each cake. Top with some sliced banana and maple syrup.
For mine, I missed out the bananas as had none, but it was absolutely fine without. The pancakes were cooked for my sons breakfast, one had it drizzled with maple syrup, the other golden syrup, I tested both and they were absolutely delicious.
Having the oats in it, it had that added depth of flavour I really liked it an in fact was a bit gutted I had not made any for myself!
Thank you for reading and I hope you are partying hard!!!
