Peanut-Butter Banana Pancakes

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups uncooked oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 large ripe banana (or 1 small)
1 1/4 cups unsweetened soy milk
3 tablespoons natural peanut butter
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)

What you do: 

Put the uncooked oats in the blender and blend until an oat flour is formed. Pour flour into a large mixing bowl and add the baking powder, mixing well.
In a separate bowl, mash the ripe banana and add the soy milk. Mix well, then add the peanut butter. Mix very well until the peanut butter has no chunks left.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, then fold in optional chocolate chips, if you so choose. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
While the batter is sitting, ready a skillet on the stove. Spray a skillet with a thin layer of nonstick cooking spray. When the batter is ready, drop by 3 tablespoons onto the skillet, making mini-pancakes (the batter is thick, so it's better to make the mini, although I am sure it would make regular pancakes just fine). Cook for about 2 minutes or so on each side until lightly browned, then put on a plate covered by a towel to keep warm. Repeat until there is no batter left.
This made just enough to feed me and my boyfriend for breakfast this morning!

try it out! you will NOT be disappointed.

I have never tried it with the chocolate chips because I love them with just maple syrup, but I may have to try that soon!



I luv'd these~wow wonder hows come I did't find sooner? :D


great recipe, i just double the amount of peanut butter and the amount of bananas.  great to make a big batch and quickly make throughout the week.


Oh wow.I loved these pancakes and could not stop eating them. I assume they're pretty healthy with protein and low sugar :)


This recipie was absolutely the most delicious breakfast that I have ever had.  I made this exactly as described but I used almond butter rather than peanut butter.  I like peanut butter but I like almond butter more.  Very filling, and stays with you.  Thank you for this post.  Two thumbs way up!


This didn't work out so well for me. First of all, blending the oats was a pain - I wish the recipe stated how much FLOUR was needed, so that someone could use oat flour or any other type of flour. Then, the pancakes took forever to cook, and at the end they were still raw in the middle! Not only that, but the flavor was incredibly bland. Sorry, I won't be making these again - which is too bad, because I love banana/peanut butter combinations. 1 star.


Also, once I added cocoa to make chocolate chocolate chip pancakes... and then, went I went to add the milk, I saw that the only milk I had was chocolate almond milk!  ;D  Well I've since learned that the recipe works fine with water rather than milk... but at the time I just went ahead and made triple-chocolate pancakes.  I suppose, once I saw that I had to use chocolate milk, that I could have at least left out the chocolate chips and make them a little less ridiculous... but... I didn't.  ::)  They were good, too. ;)


Delicious!!!  :)  I've made these about three hundred thousand times.    The recipe is very resilient -- in my history with this recipe I've accidentally left out the peanut butter, used quick oats instead of rolled, used applesauce instead of a banana, etc, and they always turn out great.  Taking a cue from another recipe on this site, I make the whole thing in the blender.  Easy as can be -- no mashing, no manual mixing, and clean-up is a cinch.  Takes me much less than the 30 minute prep time the recipe advertises.  Also, the recipe warns against making them too big because the batter is thick, but I've avoided that issue by just spreading the batter a bit thinner with a spoon, when I felt that really big pancakes were necessary.  My omni brother loved them!
