Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes

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!

Recipe Notes:
*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.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes
An Amy’s Cooking Adventures Original Recipe

1 large banana, mashed
1/3 cup dark chocolate peanut butter
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups lowfat buttermilk
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt

In a small bowl, mix mashed banana and chocolate peanut butter until smooth and combined.

In a separate bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk.  Stir in the banana mixture until well combined.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add the liquid ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined.

Cook the pancakes in an electric skillet, heated to 350 degrees F. 

Serve topped with a teaspoon of chocolate peanut butter and banana slices.

Makes about 22 medium sized pancakes


  1. I love PB & Co's dark chocolate peanut butter! They've actually been around for awhile, but they're slowly starting to be carried by more and more stores. These pancakes look perfect! I would love to eat these, mmmmm :D

  2. These sound soo good and so easy! Going to try making them with my gluten free flour. I'll keep an eye out for the chocolate peanut butter (the dark chocolate does sound amazing!) otherwise I'll make my own version if I can't find it. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh yum, I have a great recipe for banana honey pancakes, but adding chocolate would make it even better! Thanks for sharing at The Fun In Functional!
