Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes with Peanut Butter Drizzle

There’s nothing better than pancakes for a lazy, relaxed weekend, or any day for that matter. And why not add some variety to your life,  take a chance, and stray from the box mix? These only take a couple minutes longer, they taste better, and they’re even healthier! And rather than your typical butter and syrup, try a peanut butter drizzle! Nutty and slightly sweet, it’ll make the perfect addition to your pancakes!

Servings: 4

  7. Cook each panacke until small bubbles form on the surface, then flip.
