Smooth. Sweet. Fluffy. Nutritious. Delicious.
Instead of adding a mashed banana to the batter, I decided to add banana slices to the pancake in the pan. It added a layer of smoothness and sweetness to the dish. Besides, when you heat bananas, their flavor is maximize and you will also get a delicious aroma in the kitchen. You should try pan heat bananas! You just heat them in the pan for a few minutes until they turn a little bit brown. Then you can eat them, add it to any dessert, recipe or use it as a topping for pancakes, oats, etc.
Second, when adding other elements to this dish, I spread homemade peanut butter between each pancake. This added a salty contrast plus you get a layer like a cake with frosting in the middle. Making peanut butter at home is very simple and of course more nutritious because they do not have any added fat, sugar nor preservatives. I blend 2cups of peanuts with 2T of grapeseed oil. You can blend it with other type of oil like avocado or coconut. I do not recommend olive oil because it added a rare flavor.
