Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes with Nutella Syrup

Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes with Nutella Syrup from

Oh my goodness!  This was pancake breakfast heaven, if you aren’t a banana fan just do the peanut butter and nutella syrup.  I am telling you, these pancakes are so tasty!!!  I love the yummy combo of peanut butter and banana and the chocolatey syrup sets it over the top, my daughter kept saying “this syrup tastes like hot fudge!” which is one of her favorite things in the world.  This is great for about 4 people, but I would double it if you are feeding more or want leftovers.

    My son is a picky eater, so I didn’t try the pancakes but we did try the nutella syrup and he loved it! he usually ate his pancakes and waffles plain because he says he doesn’t like sauce. My daughter didn’t like it though and my husband and I don’t really care for nutella, so I was wondering, how long does the syrup keep?

    • Erica says:

      Probably about a week…

    • Angie says:

      Hershey makes a chocolate spread with no nuts. Would be a good substitute for Nutella.

      • Emily says:

        Yes, thanks Angie!

  9. Todd Caspary says:

    About how many pancakes does it make?

    • Echo says:

      It depends on how big you make the pancakes. If you use about 1/2 cup batter, it makes 5 or 6 large pancakes. If you use closer to a 1/4 cup, the pancakes are much smaller but you can get about 10. Thank you for asking!

  10. Rushika says:

    These pancakes are absolutely tasty and the nutella syrup is to die for. I think it should be in every preggy moms recipe bible 🙂

    • Echo says:

      Haha! Yes, it should. I’m so glad you like it!
