Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes with Chocolate Chips and Reese's Baking Cups and Reese's Pieces Candy


It has been awhile since I posted.  I had some family in town for a bit and then I went to Universal Studios to see the Harry Potter themed sections.


It was wonderful to see family.  We explored the city a little bit and saw a play.  The time went by too quickly.  Universal Studios was lots of fun.  I spend so much money on Harry Potter merchandise.  I think I spend about $50 dollars on candy alone.  Given that all the prices are inflated at a theme park, I didn't actually buy that much candy.  Each chocolate frog was ten bucks.

I bough a few bags of Reese's baking cups and Reese's Pieces candy and have been exploring new ways to use them.  I added them and some chocolate chips to this delicious peanut butter banana pancakes recipe.  I also used brown sugar instead of white sugar.



The ingredients are 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 2 tablespoons baking powder, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/4 cups milk, 1 mashed banana, 1/3 cup peanut butter, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 cup Reese's baking cups and Reese's Pieces candy, and 1/4 cup chocolate chips.


I combined the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt.  I whisked the dry ingredients together.




I mashed the banana in another bowl.  I doubled the recipe, which is why there are two bananas in the bowl.  The recipe just calls for one banana.  I added peanut butter, oil, vanilla, and milk.  I whisked the wet ingredients together.  




I poured the wet ingredients into the dry and mixed the batter together.  I added the Reese's baking cups and Reese's Pieces candy.  I then added the chocolate chips.  I mixed the batter again.


I cooked the pancakes in a greased skillet over medium-high heat.  Each pancake contained about a third of a cup of batter.  I cooked each side until it was golden and a little brown.


I ate these pancakes toped with greek yogurt.  Peanut butter and maple syrup would have been more delicious.  Have you eaten pancakes topped with peanut butter and maple syrup?  It's a wonderful combination.


These were scrumptious pancakes.  They were soft, tender, and fluffy.


They had a pronounced peanut butter and banana flavor.  The chocolate pieces and peanut butter cups were sweet and gooey.  The Reese's pieces added extra sweetness and peanut flavor.  


It was a tasty pancake recipe that I will use again.  I am a bit of a fan of the Reese's baking combo as well.  I'm a sucker for peanut butter and chocolate.
