Peanut Butter Banana Protein Pancakes (FOOD PHOTO SHOOT)

in #food4 years ago (edited)

Hey guys, anyone want pancakes for breakfast?

Or lunch, or dinner, or even (my favorite) pancakes for dessert! I’m the type of person who doesn’t discriminate foods based on what mealtime category they fall into. I’ll mix and match what I like and eat any kind of food anytime of day. In fact, as I’m typing out this post I’m thinking about how good veggies sound for breakfast so I’ll probably go for something savory this morning. But pancakes, now pancakes are definitely a great example of a food that works well anytime of the day.

Also, I know I know I’ve emphasized my peanut butter affair over and over, but it’s been legit recently. All time high obsession! You get the point. Now for these pancakes I was focused on the protein aspect so the pancakes themselves actually have powdered peanut butter in them to give them their nutter-buttery-ness (<- I’m going to copyright this term, YES!)

I also used one of my favorite short-cuts and added some of the Kodiak cakes Protein waffle mix (you can buy it online) that I love using. By the way, I’m not being sponsored I just genuinely like it. The ingredients are pretty basic and I love the flavor it adds, however if you can’t get a hold of it where you live or you just prefer making these from scratch let me know and I’ll give you a version completely from scratch. Oh, and these are pretty easy to turn vegan if that fits your needs better.

Alright, and now we get into the toppings! Does anyone else get overwhelmed if they let their creativity run wild in this kind of thing? Maybe that’s just me. It’s just that there are endless possibilities! Some kind of nut butter is a no-brainer of course, and then you can add any kind of fruit, nuts, syrups, granola, chocolate, and then top it off with yogurt or whipped cream. The pictured pancakes were topped with some peanut butter, banana, vanilla greek yogurt, and a quick sauce of some extra powdered peanut butter for good measure.
Most of the time though, I’ll go straight for the berries and double or triple up the yogurt on the side, in a bowl, with some granola on top. Haha, so basically my favorite way to eat pancakes in reality looks like $#%*, but it tastes amazing! That’s what counts, right?

No matter how or when you like your pancakes, these are probably my favorites right now, but I won’t sit around trying to convince you all day. Try them out and let see for yourself and don’t forget to let me know what you think in the comments and even share a picture on your socials. I’d love to know what you like to add to yours!

Great food post as always @gringalicious. You never ever fail to impress. I saw there was a dumb ass or two that requested the recipe. It shows that they obviously do not read your posts. Keep up the good work

Thanks so much for the continued support @noboxes, you know I appreciate it

Nothing better than pancakes to start the week!!

I am so glad you like it. Sorry it took me 3 days to respond. Thanks @iveta

Wow It looks super tasty.....just perfect for breakfast

I am thrilled you liked it @robertsekhose, thanks so much for commenting

Hay Caramba! You remind me of what a foodie I am at heart. Another mouth watering post. I may just have to get out of my room and find something similar at the market down the road. Do you have an all time favorite desert dish that you make, or are known for by your loved ones? I used do a super rich banana bread, and also apple pie. When I had my house in Florida I think I spent more time in my kitchen than in my bedroom. I don't think I told you but I was personal chef for a very wealthy family in NY for 6 months. I taught myself proper cooking by downloading every Jamie Oliver video watching them 3 times over taking notes for two years while I was teaching English in Korea. So I really know quality food when I see it and I see it all over your blog! Thanks for sharing! -Dan

You're a very colorful guy. Personal chef, that would be fun for me, I could totally see me doing that. So, Jamie Oliver videos, interesting. Wow, teaching English in Korea, also very interesting. I gave consideration to teaching English in Chile, but the compensation opportunities were very low. Thanks so much for your awesome commenting. I apologize if I don't comment sufficiently on your posts, it's all I can do to keep up with my own blog, etc. Have a great Tuesday and we'll talk again soon, I am sure.

No all good. I know how this place can take up a lot of time. Appreciation is equally shown in a quick up-vote too especially when you're carrying SP like you have. Thanks for your comments. I learned at young age, I can't do just one thing, I get bored and depressed. For me the spice of life is learning and experiencing all I can. Yes teaching English in South America is crap for earning money. Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Shenzen China, and Now Vietnam pays quite well. The reason I left the private chef gig, is they underpaid me and treated me like a slave including demanding that I clean their toilets as part of the gig. Was ridiculous. I went back to Korea and started up my private lesson business again. That's where the money is at! No need to reply, I'm not offended, you are busy and I have to head down the coast of the Gulf of Thailand to Pattaya this afternoon. Have great day as well!

My Dad has been to Pattaya Beach. Very interesting

I like food buffets. But there in Pattaya it's a buffet of something else. Not my my thing. I'll have a post up sometime in the next month of "real life captured: Walking Street" What counts for normal there will be shocking to most.

I think I might know where you're going with that and it's good to leave it there


As usual you shared such a yummy dish my friend! peanut butter and banana goes so well together! You really got me salivating here! Wow!
Btw i really love the change you did on this one, you wrote the recipe and finally you discover how many are really reading the post and not just asking for the recipe to get your vote!!! Good one!

Thanks @progressivechef, yes, you are correct, I am noticing who is actually reading the posts. Without question, you and @creativewoman are dear followers and I appreciate that

Thanks so much for such a nice compliment my friend! I really enjoy discovering your recipes but more interesting for me is to read your posts, as I love how you write and pen the words, simply a pleasure to read!

waooo pan cake i really like it to eat it. thanks images are yummy.

Wow, this food seems so delicious, it is perfect if we enjoy it with family and friends, may I take some recipes here. @gringalicious

They are listed in the post above under the part that says "ingredients". However if you mean where to buy them you can find them online to order. is the best place to look. Enjoy @sayutimajid!

if you read the post, you will see the recipe.. ;)

But i must agree it is easy to only look at the pictures, it look very good.) :)

Like @rezpatex said, the recipe's in the post today. Thanks @marconah!

Thanks for actually reading my post HaHa

Great work on pointing out that you don't actually read the posts. And you upvoted yourself, that's awesome. Again, great work!

Those look absolutely delicious. Any chance you could send some in the mail? haha


Haha, I'd love to @jasonshick! Unfortunately I have to settle on only pictures for now.......but maybe someday!

Hello @gringalicious. I always make pancakes at home for my kids but had always eat it only with maple syrup. Loving that easy but best match... peanut butter and banana. Must try this combination... am sure kids gonna be crazy for it. You have awesome multi-talented skills... cooking, photography and writing. Thanks for this awesome sharing. Have resteemed, upvoted and followed you. This recipe and photo will add the yummy factor on my page.

You're so sweet. Fantastic commenting, very well done. Thanks @ainie.kashif

I'm not sure peanut butter will taste good in this combo. Heart attack pancakes?

Haha, well I'm not sure if you can tell the scale of these by the photos but they are actually a very realistic portion and the nutrition facts are really good. As for the toppings I added, they were very healthy too.
If pb isn't your thing feel free to try maple syrup or whatever you like @stadex!

I wish you got Kodiak cake mix in South Africa. It's heart breaking that you don't! 😢😄 Amazing recipe though. Never fail to impress. 😌

You're always so sweet, thanks so much @themessup, I really appreciate your support!

Very good food please give me recipe

Its a dessert full of nutrition as it has fruits,nuts,egg whites etc..thanks for sharing with us..

You are very welcome @momi5 Glad you like it.

Yeah..I am going to try this for I have these ingredients right now...with me..

I LOVE peanut butter and bananas on my pancakes! I put bananas in the mix before but never tried peanut butter in as well. The whole protein concept as eluded me so far but I'm getting closer to trying it.

In other words, these sound incredibly delicious and I want to try them! Thank you for sharing them and the recipe.

Well, I hope you can try them and enjoy them @mprgrmmr! Thanks for your support!

Mouthwatering food...

This shows the level of respect I have for you @gringalicious. I DESPISE peanut butter, but I still upvoted you. ;)

I'm terribly sorry that you despise peanut butter, but I understand, there are just flavors and textures that each of us do not like. Thanks so much for the support @sgtechservices

It's more the smell for me. I blame my dad for that. He used to make peanut butter sandwiches with so much PB on them that it would make the whole house smell of it. Ugh. Always happy to support you @gringalicious. :)

great idea when you are trying to gin weight , but i am losing weight right now, but the photos are amazing. I live a very active life style you can tell form my post, and at times i need this kind of energy food

Great commenting @johnnyray, thanks so much for taking the time

I really like bananas. And in this form, even more :)

I am thrilled you liked it @daio, thaks so much for commenting

Hey my friend, it's been a little while, but I am never surprised at how amazing your food presentations are and I am a peanut butter fanatic. From the size of that fork in comparison to those pancakes, I would definitely need like a ridiculously exaggerated 6 plates, qualifying for gluttony lol jk
Can I please have the full recipe....? meaning... the recipe for your creative and 5 star quality imagination with these gourmet meals you share with us without fail everyday here on Steemit. Please keep up the great leadership in the food, photography, life, cooking, baking and recipes hashtags. Haha

You continue to be an amazing writer. I deeply apologize for not being able to comment on your post. I am spread so thin both with time and with voting power. I do what little I can when I can. Thanks again @verbal-d

Oh you are most welcome my friend, no problem, I had to stop by and show I am still around. I feel the same way you are. We are community leaders and are all over the many realms and sub communities of our vast Steemit world lol.

Plz full Recipes

I've actually already shared the recipe for this one within the post today. I hope you enjoy them @nomishiekh!

thanku and always be happy :)

Before the fork came into view, I thought this stack of pancakes was HUUUGE. Once the fork arrived on the scene, I realized that this is the perfect compact stack for one hungry gal (or guy). Peanut butter and bananas are meant to be together. Putting them with pancakes...well I won't argue with ya!

I glad the fork showed up in time. So sorry for the delay in responding, I've been swamped!!

'UpVoted ReSteemed Commented'

Annnnnnnnd now I'm hungry!

Literally just had dinner and was craving something sweet and of course I stumbled across your post...looks amazing!! Really love the presentation (as usual) and effort you put into your blog posts. Great work as always keep it up!

p.s. really feel for those that say they don't like peanut butter, I'm an understanding person but how can you not like PB !!

I have a huge family so I know about people not liking certain things. I much I don't understand, it doesn't change the fact that they don't like it, so, that's ok.

Awesome commenting as always @phamished, I really appreciate it. So sorry it took me so long to respond, it's just been super crazy

No worries, thanks for even taking the time to reply, appreciate it. Hope it's the good kind of crazy! Gives life meaning ;)

I love pancakes and I love bananas, this should be an awesome combo!!

So happy to hear it!

That looks like I could go a whole day without eating after eating it. It's nutritious, it's delicious, it's nuttery-buttery, what's not to like? I would be hard-pressed not to eat the whole thing in one sitting!

Haha, well it's really doable actually @steemedchitty. This one's pretty balanced.

You have some great posts with food, it make me hungry everytime i see one of your posts :))

Thanks so much for the great comment @dennisbak

Thank you so so much @bappask!

Great post! Looks so yummy :) Amazing food photography :)

At fist I saw it and thought, that is far too many pancakes to eat for a normal person, but the fork really puts it in perspective. Looks like a great size and so delicious. Adorable presentation as well, good job

Thanks so much for the very thoughtful comment @feenix

Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people get together to eat.

This pancakes looks so....yummy :D
Do you deliver too?? :D
