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!

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at happyandweknowit.com
