Banana Pancakes with Peanut Butter and Jelly Syrups

I love PB&J'S so I knew these would be awesome. Anything with peanut butter is bound to be good :) The peanut butter syrup goes so well with banana flavored pancakes. I like to cut banana slices to go along with the pancakes. If you love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches... you gotta make these. ENJOY

Yield: 12 (4-inch) pancakes

* 2 cups biscuit mix
* 1 cup buttermilk
* 1 cup mashed banana
* 2 large eggs
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
* 3/4 cup maple syrup
* 1/4 cup reduced-fat peanut butter spread
* Strawberry syrup


Whisk together first 5 ingredients in a large bowl just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter on a hot griddle; pour about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto griddle. Cook pancakes until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked; turn and cook other side of pancakes. Repeat procedure with remaining butter and pancake batter.

Whisk together maple syrup and peanut butter until smooth. Serve pancakes with peanut butter mixture and strawberry syrup.
