Naturally gluten free, these whole grain peanut butter banana pancakes are filled with protein-rich Greek yogurt to give you lasting energy.
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.
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.
Peanut Butter Banana Greek Yogurt Pancakes
- 1 banana
- 1 egg
- ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
- ⅓ cup oats
- 2 tablespoons PB2 Powder (or natural peanut butter)
- 1 tablespoon flax seed meal
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth, scraping down sides with a rubber spatula if necessary.
- Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour batter on heated skillet, about 1/4 cup at a time, and cook until bubbles begin to form.
- Flip pancakes and brown on second side. Continue until all batter is gone.
- Serve with banana slices and maple syrup if you wish although they are delicious plain.
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.
And to think, I happen to have some bananas that are beyond ripe sitting on my counter….this calls for second breakfast!
Please make these!! Ideal for ripe bananas!
And then I faceplanted onto my computer and drooled…
haha don’t hurt yourself!!
We made these this morning but couldn’t get the middle done – is that how they’re supposed to be? Kinda gooey?
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. :)
This looks like such an awesome breakfast!!
Thanks friend! My kids devoured them!
These sound soooo soooooo good! Been meaning to try PB2…
You will love PB2!! I love it in my smoothies!
Yummo! These look delicious! A great alternative to pancakes. Have you tried freezing them yet?
Yes – they freeze great!!!!
I have been craving pancakes something fierce lately and these look amazing, Liz! I’m a big fan of the pb/banana combo too, and I love how these pack a nice punch of protein!
These are perfect for your pancake craving!!
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/ :)
It really is a magical combo!!
I’m a huge lover of the banana-peanut butter combo too! And these pancakes look delish!
Seriously – nothing better! Thanks Phi!
This is my kind of breakfast! Perfect way to start off the week!
Thanks Jessica!! I hope you try them!
These pancakes are exactly what I want today! delicious!! and who isn’t obsessed with peanut butter and banana?! :) love!
My favorite combo too!
I LOVE these Liz! Pancakes are my favorite and the pb, banana and greek yogurt combo is to die for. :)
Thank you friend!! It’s one of my favorite snacks so I turned it into breakfast. ;)
I love this combo too! Wish I had a stack of these this morning!
You and me both! Thanks Gaby!
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.
Yes!! I love using oats in pancakes. I actually like using them and not blending them – it gives them a lot of chewy texture. :)
Now, this is how every Monday should start! Pass me a stack and fork!
Did you remember to bring the bacon?? :)
Fruit with pancakes always makes them extra wonderful! I love the bananas tucked into the layers!
Aww thank you!! We eat so many bananas in this house!
I am mildly obsessed with these banana pancakes too! Love that you added the PB2 powder…I actually just picked some up this weekend!!!
No way!! I am almost out and need a new jar. Isn’t it the best??
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.
Ooo I love the poppy seed idea!!! Thank you so much Mandy!
