PB Banana Pancakes with Marshmallow Syrup Recipe

Spring break means experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen!  Today the boys came up with a pretty tasty recipe for pancakes that used up our rotting old banana no one wanted to eat. Here it is!

Peanut Butter/Banana Pancakes

Sift together 1 1/2 cup flour

1 tablespoon sugar

3 1/2 teaspoons of Baking Powder

Mush up 1 overly ripe banana and add to the mix

Melt 3 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter

Pour in the peanut butter

Measure out 1 1/4 cups of milk

Add it to the rest

Beat it, just beat it until smooth

Go ahead and lick the beaters since there aren't any eggs in the batter

 Cook like regular pancakes
*note: no one said pancakes have to be round

Marshmallow Syrup

2 tablespoons of butter

24 Marshmallows

stir together over a low heat

keep stirring until melted

plate the pancakes

pour on the syrup

and enjoy!
