Breakfast in a Jar

Like most food bloggers/foodies out there, we have an ever growing pinterest board, with the list of things to make getting longer and longer.  It seems like for every recipe we make from our board, we pin three more!  (we’re fighting a losing battle here, people). What can we say – you guys have awesome ideas!

So whenever we do actually get around to making one of the recipes we’ve pinned, we’re very proud of ourselves! Of course, we often make our own versions of these recipes, tailoring them to items we have in our pantry and to our own likes and dislikes, but really, did you expect any less?

Today’s recipe was inspired by a relatively new-to-us blogger, Danny from Boy and the Rabbit. He has a unique style of writing and really tasty recipes, so if you haven’t checked out his blog yet, you should!

About 3 months ago, we came across his recipe for blueberry pancakes in a jar, and instantly fell in love with the idea- and we finally got around to actually making it!  (better late than never, right?)

Of course, blueberry season is long over, so we made a peanut butter banana version instead! (It’s always banana season in our house… :))

Wow, this breakfast was even better than we thought it was going to be!  And with only a 3-minute microwaving time, we have no idea why it took us so long to make it!

We were surprised at how much this actually tasted like pancakes! Not only that, but the texture was perfect. Light and fluffy, with an ooey-gooey banana bottom.

Forget fruit-bottom yogurt, fruit-bottom pancakes are where its at!

We’ve also come to the conclusion that any food tastes better when placed in a jar 🙂

Since having this first pancake-in-a-jar experience, our minds are bursting with the endless possible flavour combinations! We’ve already made a ginger peach one. 🙂

Topped with banana peanut butter (mashed banana + peanut butter), this was breakfast perfection!

A light and fluffy pancake… in a jar… in 3min… genius.

Thanks, Danny! 🙂

Peanut-Butter Banana Pancake In a Jar

adapted from Boy and the Rabbit

Prep time: 5min
Cook time: 3min
Serves: 2


1 c. whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 c. milk
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
1/4 tsp banana extract (optional)

2 bananas


Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add milk, peanut butter and honey to the dry ingredients, stir just until moistened throughout.
Dice 1 1/2 of the bananas and place them in the bottom of two medium-sized jars. Divide the pancake mixture between the two jars, spooning the mixture on top of the bananas.
Place in the microwave and cook for 3min.
Mash the other half-banana and mix with peanut butter to top.


Do you have a gigantic pinterest board? What are some of you favourite recipes you’ve pinned? (We’re looking to grow ours even more 😉 )

  10. I don’t have a pinterest board, but I do have a mess of word files/e-mails to myself/random notes of recipes I want to make. Pinterest would probably save me one big headache.

    And I love pancakes. And I love microwave recipes. Now to find myself a jar and give this a try…

  11. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say
    that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!
