I have a confession to make. I has never made homemade pancakes before! But all of that changed when I  recently discovered this recipe! My friend invited us over for brunch/playdate right before Christmas and served up these delicious pancakes. The recipe came from her sister  Maegan, who is the blogger for Gold Medal Flour.

These have quickly become part of Saturday morning routine! Ben and I love the addition of bananas to the pancake batter. I always omit the nuts due to Noah’s peanut allergy but occasionally I will make the peanut butter syrup just for the adults to have! YUM!! Try these next weekend! You won’t be disappointed.

Pancakes:

  • 1-3/4 cups Gold Medal® whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 bananas, coarsely mashed
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed

Syrup:

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla, and oil. Mash the banana and whisk that in as well. Add the milk and whisk until well combined.

Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Fold in the pecans and flax seed.  Let the batter sit for a few minutes while the griddle heats up.

Spread a little oil over a hot griddle. Use a ladle or 1/4 cup measuring cup to spoon the batter onto the preheated griddle. Cook until bubbly, a little dry around the edges, and lightly browned on the bottom; turn and brown the other side. Keep cooked pancakes warm in a 200°F oven and repeat with the rest of the batter.

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the peanut butter. Whisk in the maple syrup just before you are ready to serve the pancakes. Drizzle pancakes with warm peanut butter maple syrup and enjoy!
