Peanut Butter Banana Bread Pancakes with Peanut Butter Maple Glaze

I love Jack Johnson. His music is just so relaxing and happy. One of my favorite songs is Banana Pancakes. This song got me thinkin'... I really want banana pancakes. Not just any banana pancake, but a hearty pancake with peanut butter. Because peanut butter and banana is one of my all-time favorite combination (well besides coffee + chocolate). So I searched the internet and came across a banana bread pancake recipe that everyone was raving about, so I decided to use that base of the pancakes, but add peanut butter chocolate chips and a peanut butter maple glaze. Of course, Clayton claims these are his favorite pancakes... but he does that every time. These pancakes are really good though. They are huge and thick unlike some pancakes that are thin and flat. I mean they really do taste a lot like banana bread. So if you love peanut butter + banana, then this will definitely be right up your ally!
Peanut Butter Banana Bread Pancakes with Peanut Butter Maple Glaze
For the Pancakes:
1C Whole Wheat Flour
1C AP Flour
2t Baking Powder
¼t Salt
¼C Brown Sugar
1t Cinnamon
¼t Nutmeg
2/3C Milk
1T Vanilla
3 Large, Ripe Bananas, Mashed
2T Butter Melted
½C Peanut Butter Chips

For the Peanut Butter Maple Glaze:
½C Maple Syrup
½C Peanut Butter
1C Powdered Sugar
3T Milk
1t Vanilla

1. To Make the Banana Bread Pancake Batter: In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Measure out the milk and add the vanilla extract to it. Whisk together the dry ingredients and add in the milk & vanilla, stirring to combine. The mixture will still be dry. Add in the mashed bananas and mix. Add in the melted butter and stir until the batter is somewhat smooth.
2. To Cook the Pancakes: Heat a skillet or grill on medium heat. Using a 1/3C measure, spoon batter into rounds and cook until bubbles form on the top, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for another minute or two. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve hot with butter and syrup, or the peanut butter maple glaze.
3. To Make the Peanut Butter Maple Glaze: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until smooth. Pour over the hot pancakes.
