Start your weekend with these protein-rich vegan peanut butter and banana pancakes. Whether you’re making them for your family breakfast or a special brunch date, they will go down like a treat! Top them with bananas and maple syrup and enjoy every delicious mouthful.
In my humble opinion, a good weekend is not quite complete without a mouth-watering stack of pancakes, hence I’m always up for experimenting with different pancake flavours and textures. I’ve posted the recipes for carrot cake pancakes before, gingerbread pancakes, buckwheat pancakes and you know what?! I don’t mean to stop – there are too many delicious flavours to experiment with, right?!
I usually like ‘playing’ with different flours, so on this occasion I used good old porridge oats and milled them in my Nutribullet (I just pulse them for 3-5 seconds until they turn into fine oat flour). To add a good protein boost to these pancakes, I also used peanut flour, which is 50% protein and 11% fibre, as well as low glycemic and naturally gluten-free.
When it comes to pancake toppings, I dare not stop you from being as adventurous as you like. I normally like mine with a drizzle of maple syrup and some berries on the side but these peanut butter and banana pancakes definitely require to be served with banana medallions and a generous dollop of peanut butter, just for good measure!
As always, if you have a go at making these vegan peanut butter & banana pancakes, I’d love you to drop a comment in the comment section below and tag me on Instagram @fit.foodie.nutter #fitfoodienutter so I can see your take on them.
Have a great week.
