These 3-Ingredient PB2 Pancakes are perfect for a delicious and healthy breakfast. If you are looking for a low carb pancakes recipe that still tastes amazing, this is it! All you need are bananas, peanut flour, and eggs! Make a batch of these healthy pancakes this week.
So. I have a secret. I didn’t actually use any peanut butter in this recipe. I USED PEANUT FLOUR!
I received a request from an FFF follower that asked us to create more recipes using peanut flour. I used to eat peanut flour all the time, but hadn’t thought about it in forever! Our cupboards are officially restocked and now we have these tasty 3-Ingredient PB2 Pancakes ready for you to eat.
I love peanut flour because it has a ton of protein and that peanut buttery taste you know and love, but is great if you are trying to eat less fat. Peanut flour AKA PB2 is essentially defatted peanut butter meaning that a lot of the fat is sucked out of the peanut butter, leaving a coconut flour-like peanut butter flour! In addition to the peanut flour request, we’ve also received many comments from people asking for a pancake recipe without milk. So, this one is for YOU, my dairy-free homies!
These healthy pancakes are actually…
- And? They taste good. HOLY DAY.
With that said, I would like to preface that these pancakes are not your typical super fluffy pancakes, they are a bit thinner and SO DELISH. As you can tell by the title, there are only 3-ingredients involved and we decided not to use baking powder or baking soda to keep this list down to 3.
Peanut Flour and PB2 Fun Facts!
What is Peanut Flour?
Like I mentioned above, peanut flour is actually defatted peanut butter. The majority of the fat gets sucked out of peanut flour and leaves a peanut butter flour that tastes just like peanut butter, but has a very different texture (similar to coconut flour). Peanut flour is a great thing to add to baked goods, sauces, and smoothies.
Is peanut flour and pb2 the same thing?
Yes, PB2 is just a brand of peanut flour.
Is peanut flour healthier than peanut butter?
It’s all relative, people! It all depends on what your health and nutrition goals are. Some people want the healthier fat from all-natural natural peanut butter and some people are looking for the low carb and low-fat option of peanut flour.
