Have you seen the chocolate peanut butter that hit the stores recently? Shut Up!
My boys are all about Nutella, but I never quite got on that bandwagon. But chocolate peanut butter? Sign me up!
It’s still a bit sweet to spread on apples (sad). But by the spoonful or (especially) in a pancake: ah-mazing!
*You read it right: there is no sugar in this recipe! The chocolate peanut butter and bananas add plenty of sweetness to these pancakes!
*Mixing the bananas and peanut butter together helps the peanut butter to incorporate into the pancake batter more evenly.
