Darren is the most typical college guy ever. His apartment is always a mess, and he never has any food. I mean, I know it’s too much to ask for the healthy (and expensive-shoutout to mom for putting up with my expensive dietary staples like almond milk, organic apples, and pounds of butter to support my baking habit) foods I eat on a daily basis. But, is it really too much to ask for any food at all? I think not. I starve at Darren’s apartment. I have to prepare for a long period of famine before I come over to his apartment. That’s where my banana pancake breakfast comes in.
I’m seriously obsessed with banana pancakes! They are so good! Normally I top them with straight up peanut butter. Today though, I made a fancy two ingredient peanut butter banana butter. I bet you can’t guess what the two ingredients are. Now onto photos and recipes…
adapted from chocolatecoveredkatie.com
- 2/3 cup flour (I used whole wheat)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 3/4 cup milk (I used almond milk, but you can use dairy)
- dash of salt
Mix the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, mash the banana and then add the other liquid ingredients. Stir the dry into the wet. Cook pancakes in pan or on griddle.
PB banana butter
- 1 medium banana
- 2 to 4 tablespoons peanut butter, depending on how pb-y you like it (or almond, cashew, walnut butter, etc.)
Procedure: Whir the two ingredients in your food processor or blender until smooth. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge. (If possible, it’s best to let the mixture sit for a few hours before enjoying, as the taste becomes more robust with time.)
