Peanut Butter and Honey Pancake Tacos
My Eldest: Mom, are you getting out of bed? I can’t find my shoes.
Me: Ugh, is it 7:30 already? I haven’t made lunches yet. Double ugh, it’s Taco Tuesday and the recipe I made and photographed last night sucked and I don’t really want to post it. I really hope the kids don’t want pancakes for breakfast.
The Little One: I want pancakes for breakfast.
As I flipped pancakes and made the kids lunches (it’s a mom super power to do both efficiently), I couldn’t help but feel reluctant about posting the taco recipe I had for today. In true Mountain Mama fashion, I waited to the last minute to test the recipe and in all honesty they totally sucked. So here I was this morning, taco-less, coffee-less, flipping pancakes, making sandwiches and wishing I could just go back to bed.
But I didn’t go back to bed. I continued to flip pancakes. And all to quickly my brain switched thoughts entirely and I started thinking that pancakes is hardly a well rounded breakfast. Sure they’re homemade and most kids would be lucky to get a hot breakfast before leaving the house but somehow pancakes on their own just fall short. I know that as much as I love a plate of pancakes, I’m usually hungry hours later as it just isn’t enough to sustain me through my morning. And I like said above, I hadn’t had any coffee so asking me to scramble some eggs or fry some bacon was totally out of the question.
I needed a tacos and the kids needed more than pancakes so I did what any super-hero mom who also happens to write a food blog does. I combined the two problems and came up with one solution. Peanut Butter and Banana Breakfast Tacos. I had a breakfast packed with the goods that I knew would keep my kids bellies sustained through lunch and I also had a genius (albeit unconventional) taco to give you today.
Thank you and you’re welcome. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need some coffee.
ps- the kids, my husband and I all loved these. You can make it your own by putting whatever you want in. I opted for unsweetened coconut, chia seeds and a drizzle of honey.Print
Peanut Butter and Honey Pancake Taco
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 bananas
- honey for drizzling
- unsweetened coconut & chia seeds (optional)
- Preheat griddle or large sauté pan to medium heat.
- In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine egg, milk and oil. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir until smooth.
- Spoon batter onto greased pan. Use about 1/4 cup batter so you get 4-5 6-inch pancakes. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
- Spread each pancake with a tablespoon of peanut butter. Top with sliced banana and drizzle with honey. If desired, sprinkle with coconut and chia seeds. Fold into taco and enjoy!
Thank you. Have a great day!
Well girlfriend, you have mom superpowers AND blogger superpowers because these are the cutest things ever, and I LOVE that they’re more than just pancakes and syrup! I love a great stack of pancakes, but they do fall short in keeping me full through the morning too. A little PB sounds like a great trick!
Totally loved knowing the thought process behind this masterpiece. And seriously… its GENIUS!!! I can’t wait to make it for my little ones. Thank you!!
You’re so welcome! Hope your kids enjoy them!!
So clever!! My kiddos will love these.
I’m sure they would- they make for a great and easy breakfast for on the go too!
I’ve long loved peanut butter on pancakes but never thought to make a taco-like creation (with delish bananas and honey to boot)!
Me too- fold them together and voile- you have pancake tacos!
Oh that’s awesome, I’m surprised I’ve never done this before! Great idea! Love the combo.
This is an awesome idea! I love love love it. My kids would definitely flip over these tacos.
So easy and fun not to mention filling for little bellies!
Pancakes tacos!! Now that is creative and you win best mom + blogger award for sure! I love the PB and honey combo. And I especially love those chia seeds and coconut flakes! I am addicted these days!
Love, love love this creative last minute idea. Awesome. What you can do with a well-stocked pantry…
I was pretty proud of myself! They came together so easily and were a HUGE hit with the kids!
“In all honesty they totally sucked.” Ha ha! Love your honesty. Been there and done that!!!
Mountain Mama = true Mother of Invention. I think this is a fab idea (I’m planning on making a roll-up myself 😉 Great minds…and all that jazz.
Genius!!!! Love the idea!
You are seriously the coolest Mom ever! Pancake tacos? Brilliant!
Pancake. Tacos?!?! A woman after my own heart!! These are so brilliant I have practically no words. I may have to make these….tonight!
What a clever idea! Super handy for a breakfast on the go!
You could fill it with just about anything!
I don’t know if my child would like this because she’s so darn picky, but I know I would and I know what I’ll be making for breakfast this week.
You are a genius! I am totally making these for myself!
