Enjoy Peanut Butter for Breakfast with these easy and fun mini Elvis inspired pancakes! Top mini chocolate chip pancakes with peanut butter and bananas.

Mini Elvis Pancakes long 2

 

We are now in to our third week of school and I feel like I have a better handle on our morning routine.  Breakfast can be stressful on busy weekday mornings so I’m always looking for a way to make it easier and faster while providing a nutritious meal my kids will actually eat.  And since September is Better Breakfast Month, it seems like the perfect opportunity to refine our breakfast options.  An easy way to do that is by using peanut butter at breakfast.

Peanut butter is high in fiber, protein and good fats.  It is also a natural, plant-based source of eight grams of protein and more than 30 essential nutrients and phytonutrients.  Protein at breakfast will help your kids feel fuller longer and peanut butter is a great way to get some much needed protein in the morning. Did you know it takes about 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter?!  Check out the National Peanut Board for more fun facts and information on peanut butter!

I first made Elvis pancakes a few years ago.  Apparently Elvis loved the combination of chocolate, peanut butter and bananas.  I was curious to see what that tasted like and trust me – this one flavor combination you have to try!  Start with a batch of mini chocolate chip pancakes.  I use a homemade baking mix to make mine but any recipe will do. You could even use frozen ones from the grocery store.

Slather the tops of the pancakes with your favorite peanut butter.  I put on a nice thick layer because I want the kids to get as much protein as possible.

Then top the pancakes with a slice or two of banana.  Your kids will probably think you are a little crazy, but trust me – these are delicious!  Elvis was totally right about this fun flavor combination.
