We have a rule in our home that you can have pancakes for breakfast, but can only use syrup on the weekend. As you can guess, this is a very unpopular rule among the short ones. Syrup has around 32 grams of sugar per serving. To have once in a while is fine, but it’s not the way I want to send my kiddos off to school EVERY day.
My son was angry this morning because I had to enforce the “no syrup” rule. However, he took that anger and channeled it to come up with this healthier way to enjoy his pancakes. This is how the Double Decker PB&B Pancake Sandwich was born!
What you need:
- 1 pouch (3 pancakes) Breakfast Best Buttermilk Pancakes
- Peanut Delight Natural Cream Peanut Butter Spread
- 1 banana, sliced in rounds
How to make it:
- Cook the pancakes according to the package directions. (We used the toaster method.)
- Place one layer of sliced bananas on a pancake. Take another pancake and spread about 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on it. Place the peanut butter side FACE DOWN on the bananas.
- Repeat Step 2.
It may seem a bit silly to post a “recipe” for this, but I wanted to remind everyone of ways to take a “not so healthy” breakfast, and turn it in to something that is going to keep your belly full and your body full of energy until lunchtime.
