Peanut Butter Banana Greek Yogurt Pancakes - The Lemon Bowl

I’m not sure if you noticed but I’m mildly obsessed with peanut butter and banana. I can’t resist the salty, nutty, sweet, and satisfying combination of these two energy-packed superfoods. It’s my favorite way to flavor smoothies, refrigerator oatmeal, and now, PANCAKES!

Forget high priced muscle protein drinks and energy bars, just grab a banana and a spoonful of peanut butter before your workout and you will get all the healthy carbs, protein and fat your body needs. On days that I’m able to workout mid-morning, these Peanut Butter Banana Greek Yogurt Pancakes are my fuel-packed breakfast of choice.

PB Banana Greek Yogurt Pancakes - The Lemon Bowl

Whole grain, protein-rich and naturally gluten free, these pancakes are full of flavor and a nice change from cold cereal or smoothies. I prefer unsweetened Greek yogurt but you could use any flavor including vanilla or even blueberry. My toddler likes them drizzled with a little pure maple syrup but if you are using ripe bananas they will be sweet enough on their own.

Your fork is waiting.

    This recipe looks yummy! I keep trying to pin it, but keep getting this message: “We’re having some trouble talking to cdn4.thelemonbowl.com. Please try again later!” I have been coming back and trying for awhile now. Any suggestions?

      Shoot – I think there was a brief outage. Is it working now? Would love it if you checked if you have time!

        Thank you for following up on this. It did let me pin this time. Yay! But it didn’t go back to your page, just a blank one. I was able to use the arrow key at the top left of the screen to get back here though.

      We made these this morning but couldn’t get the middle done – is that how they’re supposed to be? Kinda gooey?

      1. Liz DellaCroce Avatar

        I wonder if they just needed to cook a little longer? Or perhaps be spread a bit thinner? THey should be moist in the middle but not gooey per say. :)

    I’m down for anything with peanut butter and bananas in it, there’s just something so magical about the combo. Pancakes fit the bill just perfectly, they look like heaven, and not the least bit health/ :)

    I am officially intrigued by these pancakes. I’ve ground up oats to use in baking recipes plenty of times, but haven’t thought to use them as the main ingredient in pancakes.

    1. Liz DellaCroce Avatar
      Liz DellaCroce

      Yes!! I love using oats in pancakes. I actually like using them and not blending them – it gives them a lot of chewy texture. :)

    These look marvelous, Liz! Thanks so much for sharing! I make Banana Poppy Seed Pancakes all the time, but haven’t ever thought to add peanut butter. I am definitely going to try this. By the way, PB2 is amazing stuff. Thanks again! I adore your site.
