Peanut Butter Banana Protein Pancakes

There has been a lot of pancake eating happening in my kitchen lately, especially at really weird times in the day. The other day I ate these pancakes directly out of the pan at approximately 4:00 with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Not quite dinner, a little too late for a snack, definitely not pretty…who knows what it was besides a delicious mess of pancakes and melting ice cream. But no matter what time you decide to eat these gems they are sure to satisfy – packed with protein and full of peanut buttery banana goodness. They also seem to be the darling of Pinterest at the moment as I have seen similar recipes popping up everywhere. Want to lighten it up even more, try making them with PB2 instead.

    What is PB2

      PB2 is a lower calorie peanut butter powder that you mix with water. I personally love it and use it all the time :)

    I’m a little confused. Why is a serving 5 points plus? With PB2 it should only be 2 points plus right?

    These look awesome! I would only calculate a serving as 2 points using PB2 – 1 pp for the egg whites and 1 pp for the serving of PB2. Do you usually factor in fruits and vegetables when calculating the pp for a recipe?

      It’s up to you if you want to count the banana or not. Everyone has a different philosophy and I personally decide based on the recipe and whether it is a meal or snack for me. I would count this as 2 points plus for breakfast. I always include fruits and veggies in the calculations of the points though on this blog since I feel it is better to err on the side of more points than less points :) Would love to hear from other folks here as well!

    When you use PB2, do you use it just as the powder or do you mix it with water first?

      I mixed it with water before mixing it with the banana and egg whites. They were yummy! They fell apart a bit but still tasted good. I might double the PB 2 next time though.

    How many servings/total pancakes does this make? It would help to know what size pancakes I should be making. :)

      It makes three pancakes. They are about 4-6 inches in diameter.

    PB2 is a good product so is the PB2 with chocolate -which turns these great pancakes into awesome in my book-love my chocolate. I always add olive oil to my PB2 to make it creamier. It did make my pancakes just a little more substantial but still a welcome addition for getting in my daily healthy oils.
