Banana and Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Pancakes

I’m only a few days out from being on the ICU, but I am still reveling in the joys of being back on elective. Although I’m so ready for the weekend! A free weekend that is! I’ve worked every day for the past 19 days except one Sunday a couple Sunday’s back. So I am very much looking forward to not having to work this weekend to say the least.

I will admit. There are a few con’s, but the pros far outweigh the cons. Really it all revolves around the fact that I no longer get to wear jammies every day :(.

It was so nice just getting up, throwing on a pair of scrubs and minimal makeup, eating my (cough cough) first breakfast since I typically eat at least two 😉 especially on mornings when my first one is so early. Side note: I don’t know how people go hours and hours and hours without eating. It’s totally a foreign concept to me. I’m always eating, or snacking on something lol.

So CON: I now have actually put on real clothes! So, I’ve got to take time to consider the weather, my outfit, accessories and everything. Oh well, I love putting together outfits and accessorizing them! It just takes me longer in the morning to get ready. BUUUUTTTT since I get to get up when the sun is actually up now, I’ll take the trade off.

PROS:

1.It is now light when I get up, and when I get home! AKA my hours are much more respectable

2. This means I actually have some free time! However, sometimes this is a bit unnerving. I get all paranoid when I have drastic time requirement shifts such as this. I’m all like:

free time

3.Even better, I have free weekends again. WOOT WOOT! Unless I get pulled to cover when I’m on jeopardy this month). Keep your fingers crossed for me that this doesn’t happen.

  • This should allow me to focus on all the things I need to do to prepare for my next program and *gasp* moving across the country.

4. Still not having to wear my white coat

  • Fact: Ok, so I got away without wearing my coat on ICU, hehe. I actually really am not a fan of wearing it.
    • However, it is great for having lots of pockets to put things in. (AKA lots of snacks) and also great for warmth since it’s so heavy.

5. NO MORE ISOLATION ROOMS AT LEAST FOR THE NEXT MONTH!!!

  • You’ve heard me talk before about how much I hate gowning up. It’s seriously the worst.

Yay! So overall, major life improvements here people, well, at least for the month haha. Now let’s get to today’s recipe! I may or may have not had some serious trouble not eating all of these before I could take a picture. They are so yummy! I hope you like them! In case you missed it: Here is the other recipe made with my clean peanut butter protein pancake mix recipe.

Ingredients
Servings: batch (I got about 30 silver dollar pancakes)
Instructions
  1. Grind oatmeal into a flour (I use a coffee grinder)
  2. Dice your banana
  3. Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl (I use a measuring cup with a spout)
  4. Add liquid of choice (I use water) until batter thins
  5. Grease and heat your skillet until it sizzles when you throw some water droplets onto it
  6. Once your pan is ready, spoon or pour out your pancake batter into your preferred size (I like silver dollar)
  7. Cook until bubbles form on top and flip
  8. Cook for ~30 seconds more, or until done
  9. Repeat until the batter is gone
  10. Top with desired toppings (I ate the plain) and enjoy!
Recipe Notes
  1. I suggest spooning out the batter. By doing it this way, you can ensure you get a bit of banana and chocolate chips in most of the pancakes instead of the pieces sinking to the bottom.
  2. Use vegan chocolate chips to make the recipe vegan.

    This sounds great! I have never tried peanut flour before. Amazing how many flours there are these days!

      I agree! There are so many flours out there that I would love to try. I’m a huge fan of peanut flour. It’s a bit dense, but I like that about it. It really holds together well.

    I’ll be working from home starting later this year and I canNOT wait to just wear jammies/ comfortable clothes all day every day 🙂 I’m loving ALL things peanut butter these days so I’ll have to try these!

      Oh man that sounds awesome! I’m a bit jealous! I think I would really like working from home haha. Peanut butter is easily one of my favorite foods. So yummy.

    Love pancakes and anything peanut butter, banana, chocolate chip and I’m there (hence the photo I posted on IG this morning)! Even better when they are healthy and packed with protein.
