Peanut Butter Banana Protein Pancakes – Light, fluffy, EASY pancakes that pack 13+ grams of PROTEIN per serving!! The peanut butter-infused maple syrup is rich, decadent, and you’ll never settle for plain maple syrup again!!
If you’re looking for extremely easy pancakes that are soft, fluffy, light, and pack extra protein look no further than this recipe.
I used the new Krusteaz Protein Buttermilk Pancake Mix and it couldn’t be easier. You don’t even need to add milk or eggs. Just add the mix to a bowl and add water.
I love that you don’t have to go out for buttermilk but can still enjoy the lovely taste of buttermilk pancakes with this mix.
One serving of pancakes packs 13 grams of protein and if you choose to add eggs or milk to the mix, the protein quotient goes up even more. I made them with both water and milk and they were great both ways.
I drizzled the pancakes with peanut butter for even more protein. Peanut butter that’s been infused into maple syrup of course.
It’s decadent, rich, and the warm pancakes soak it up beautifully. I don’t know how I’ll ever go back to plain maple syrup after this ultra scrumptious version.
I garnished the pancakes with bananas and I couldn’t resist adding a few chocolate chips. My daughter devoured a big stack in record time and said the chocolate chips were the perfect touch.
This is such a fast and easy breakfast that’s perfectly doable for weekdays or try it for your next brunch or as breakfast-for-dinner when you’re wanting to change things up.
Here’s a video that shows you exactly how to make them.
- 1 cup Krusteaz Protein Buttermilk Pancake Mix
- 2/3 cup cold water or milk
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 large banana, sliced into thin rounds
- mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional for garnishing
- To a medium bowl, add the pancake mix, water, and whisk to combine; don’t overmix. Batter will be slightly lumpy and on the thicker side. Let batter stand 2 minutes.
- Heat a griddle to 375F (medium heat) or heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and generously spray with cooking spray.
