Banana Bread Pancakes

9 Mar

“Makin’ banana pancakes, pretend like it’s the weekend..” was the theme of this morning’s breakfast :)

I’ve been really into making pancakes lately. All different kinds. But this morning, since my boyfriend absolutely loves banana bread, I decided to create these. Fluffy, moist, and that oh so delicious taste of biting into a good piece of banana bread. Top it with my peanut butter yogurt sauce, and you’ve really got yourself something yummy.

People tend to think pancakes are a “bad food”, but you’ll come to learn with my oh so many recipes I’ve made, that you can make them really healthy! Like these, substitute some flour for oatmeal, egg for egg substitute, add in some fruit like bananas, and top it with protein filled Greek yogurt. Looks like you’ve got yourself an all-around healthy meal! I’ve also been experimenting with a lot of protein pancakes made with protein powder that are really high in protein and good post-workout snacks ..which I’ll post sometime soon :)  But even with these pancakes, making a whole big batch of them and saving some in the fridge makes such a good snack..or second meal! My brother came in today from Tampa and found my leftover bag of them from this morning. Let’s just say, I no longer have any more leftovers :) But anyways, enjoy these banana bread pancakes as you, “pretend like it’s the weekend”..or, make them now while it is the weekend!
