Banana Sourdough Pancakes with Peanut Butter Syrup

I can’t hide my love of breakfast food. I cant remember a time in my life where it hasn’t been true. When I think of a Saturday morning it is always entangled with thoughts of pancakes, sausage, eggs, French toast, hash browns….I could go on and on. I would like a show of hands for everyone who shares my love.

When I woke up this morning, it was no different. I knew I had a few black bananas to use up and sourdough starter that needs to be discarded so that’s where the idea for this formed. I love using sourdough starter for pancakes! It adds such a great flavor and makes them so tender. I am glad every time I get to use it in a new recipe.

I have always had a dream of having a home where people come over for a big breakfast on Saturday mornings. I remember every once in a while as a kid when the whole family would meet for breakfast. There would be piles of pancakes, sausage, biscuits and gravy and maybe even some bohemian Jaternice and fried potato dumplings thrown in there. I hope that someday I have a circle of friends close that I can share this with. For now its just my husband and I enjoying wonderful breakfast foods like this.
