Vegan Peanut Butter & Banana Pancakes

I’m not the best baker, in fact I’m pretty bad at it. It’s an exact science, you need to measure, have the exact ingredients. Just not how I usually operate in the kitchen. With baking, you are balancing acids with bases and when you miss a step, the whole thing falls apart. No thanks!

But you don’t get better at something unless you practice, right?! What better venue and day to do that then at home on a Saturday, one of my favorite days of the week! So I decided to try some vegan pancakes for breakfast…knowing I wanted peanut butter to add some protein punch. Well, they came out delicious & I followed my own recipe, that I actually wrote down, so am passing it on to you!

Enjoy!
