A very lovely Sunday to you! So, let’s talk breakfast. Who doesn’t like pancakes?! For months now I’ve been making pancakes that are just delightful. I’ve made pancakes from scratch before, but I use an inexpensive “just add water” mix from Aldi for these beauties.

The pancakes are cinnamon-y and moist with a burst of sweet banana flavor from the topping. A generous drizzle of melted peanut butter really kick these pancakes up a notch, and homemade cinnamon syrup (not pictured) is a great sweet addition. Once you try homemade syrup, you’ll never use the store-bought stuff again. Seriously.

You really can’t go wrong having pancakes for breakfast (or dinner!). These pancakes are comfort food to the max, and I know you’ll enjoy them just as much as we do.

Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Banana Topped Pancakes

Yields 6 large pancakes


Cinnamon Syrup 

  • ¼ cup Water
  • ½ cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ tsp. Cinnamon

Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Banana Topping

  • 2 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • ½ tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 Ripe Bananas, Chopped Small


  • 3½ cups “Just add water” Pancake Mix
  • 2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1½ tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 cups Water

Peanut Butter Drizzle

  • ¼ cup Creamy Peanut Butter, Melted


For the Cinnamon Syrup

Heat water in small pot over medium-high heat until boiling. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and whisk continuously until sugar is fully dissolved. Do not let boil. Promptly remove from heat and pour into a small bowl. Set aside.

For the Cinnamon-Brown Sugar Banana Topping

Melt butter in small skillet over medium heat. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and whisk to combine. Add bananas and mix well. Turn heat to low and let mingle, stirring occasionally.

For the Pancakes

Heat large non-stick electric skillet to 350 degrees. Add pancake mix, brown sugar, and cinnamon to large bowl. Whisk to mix. Add water and whisk to combine. Add a ladle-full (about 1 cup) of pancake batter to the hot electric skillet. If room allows, add another ladle-full of batter. Let cook until bubbles form around the edge of the pancakes. Flip carefully when ready and cook an additional 2 minutes, or until golden brown. 

For the Peanut Butter Drizzle

Heat peanut butter in microwave for 50 seconds. Remove and gently stir. Set aside.


Stack 2 (or 3) pancakes on a plate (spread butter on each pancake first if you’d like). Add your desired amount of the cinnamon-brown sugar banana topping. Generously drizzle with melted peanut butter, and spoon on as much cinnamon-syrup as you’d like. Enjoy!
