Each month, Melissa of Lulu the Baker, and I use the same three ingredients in a recipe and share them on the same day.  This month, Melissa selected our specified ingredients and went with flour, eggs and bananas.  I immediately thought of peanut butter.  To me, nothing pairs better with banana than peanut butter!

And what could be more perfect than peanut butter and banana paired together in pancakes?  Well, nothing except for the addition of bacon!  The sweet and the salty together is simply perfection.

But wait, there’s more!  These pancakes are garnished with sliced bananas and sprinkled with additional crumbled bacon.  Did I mention that they are then drizzled with peanut butter maple syrup?  It’s absolute breakfast nirvana – any time of day!
