I made these pancakes not too long ago with peanut butter swirls. But this time, I took it up a notch. I used this whole wheat banana pancake recipe, because I had ripe bananas on hand and they are great for making pancakes naturally sweet. This was a simple pancake recipe that could easily stand on it’s own. While I was working on the pancakes, my Mom was putting together the swirl mixture, and found the peanut butter jar almost empty. A quick scan of available ingredients yielded leftover hot fudge sauce, and well, it was destiny.
We mixed 1 T peanut butter and 2 T hot fudge sauce in a small bowl, and microwaved at low power until smooth. Then we poured the mixture into a sealable bag, and cut the corner in order to pipe the swirls into the pancakes as shown below. A decadent breakfast!
