Fiesta Friday #33

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.

banana and peanut pancake

banana and peanut pancake

Taken from Mad Avocado

Serves 2-3 (makes about 8 pancakes)

Ingredients

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)
2 eggs
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)

Method

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. 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!!!

    I seem to always have overripe bananas around, no kidding! Don’t know why I keep buying them when obviously nobody is eating them. I guess they wanted me to make them into these pancakes! 🙂

    That’s great! I’ve recently been making a lot of banana bread and this is a great variation of that. Will definitely give it a try!

    I always feel happy when I see bloggers using other bloggers’ recipes! Mandy’s and your pancakes look so delicious and I must say, I am cooking my way through Huckleberry cookbook right now and I notice that many of her recipes use maple syrup in the batter! I made a muffin recipe and it was so good and I think due to the maple syrup as sweetener! Delish pancakes!

    Yum yum yum, I do love pancakes and there seems to be a crazy amount of bananas in my house right now even though I don’t eat bananas (I love the taste, just can’t deal with the texture when you eat them by themselves). I think it must be fate!

    Michigan is “maple syrup” country. Love anything with that ingredient, then bananas and the oats make it okay to eat them and topped off with peanut butter – hmm – sounds delicious 🙂

            Three eggs, 250 grams of smooth flour, 350 mL of milk, a glass of water and if you wish a pinch of salt. You mix it all together (first eggs and milk) and leave it to stay for a while. You can add flour/milk to make the mixture thicker or thinly, and you can add more water and less milk by desire. 🙂

            Then you heat up a pan and put the mixture with a scoop on. Do not forget to put the little bit of oil first in the pan. It has to be hot when the mixture comes. Then after about half a minute you turn it over. Is your way of doing this in any kind different? 🙂
