Healthy Pancake Recipe

Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes

Is it possible to make a healthy pancake? I think this recipe gets close. It’s lighter than I expected considering it’s primary ingredient is peanut butter and banana, but it was sweet and didn’t need syrup. Try adding some sliced fresh banana on top and you have a low calorie, higher protein pancake!


  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ⅛ tsp baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp table salt
  • ⅛ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup mashed banana
  • 1/4 cup PB2 powdered peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp lowfat milk
  • 1 egg
  • cooking spray

Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl.

Whisk together banana, PB2, milk, and egg in another bowl.

Add dry ingredients to wet and stir until just combined.

Coat a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat.

Cook pancakes for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown.
