How to Make Peanut Butter and Banana Oat Pancakes in Your Air Fryer
These little pancakes are the ones you need when you want protein, fruit, and carbs all in one package! The pancakes are full of sweet mashed banana, and peanut butter provides extra flavor and protein. Want whole grains? They come in the form of quick oats. The pancakes, though simple to make, are incredibly good. I like them "as is" or with vanilla yogurt and additional sliced bananas on top. Or you can be traditional and opt for butter and maple syrup. The pancakes also are great eaten with your fingers as you gulp your coffee by the sink on busy mornings. The pancakes take minutes to mix up, and you can fry them in a pan on the stove, or, my preference, air fry the batter in mini pie tins in the air fryer. I prefer the air fryer route because I don't have to stand and watch the pancakes. The air fryer/pie tin version also comes out nicely rounded and browned. Either way, the pancakes are good! If you'd like, you can make the pancakes ahead, refrigerate them, and reheat them in the toaster or air fryer. Enjoy!
Air Fryer Peanut Butter and Banana Oat Pancakes -- Makes 8
2 cups of mashed banana (3-4 bananas)
2 large eggs
1/3 cup of peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
1 cup of quick oats
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/8 teaspoon of salt
In a medium bowl combine the bananas, eggs and peanut butter and stir or whisk them until they are completely mixed. Stir in the oats, baking powder, and salt until they are combined. Let the mixture sit for five minutes or so and stir it again. Spritz mini pie tins with non-stick cooking spray and divide the mixture among the pie tins. Put two or three tins in your air fryer basket, put the basket in your air fryer, and air fry the pancakes at 320 degrees for 10 minutes. Tip the pancakes out of the tins and serve the pancakes hot. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining tins/batter.
