Elvis Pancakes (Banana Peanut Butter Pancakes stuffed with Peanut Butter & Bacon)

These Elvis Pancakes are banana peanut butter pancakes stuffed with peanut butter and bacon. These are the ultimate breakfast treat – made with only 4 ingredients! Elvis famously loved his banana, peanut butter, and bacon sandwich and these pancakes are inspired by that amazing salty, creamy, crunchy combination.

As if peanut butter and bacon together weren’t enough of their own, the addition of banana adds a bit of fruitiness and sweetness to cut through the richness the banana and bacon bring to the party. The pancakes themselves are SO easy thanks to Krusteaz‘s super simple, just-add-water pancake mix. Of course, I can’t leave it there, so I added water, banana, and peanut butter to my pancakes to make the flavors pop. The bacon and peanut butter aren’t actually mixed in the batter, but rather stuffed inside the pancakes!

Elvis Pancakes (Banana Peanut Butter Pancakes stuffed with Peanut Butter & Bacon)


Prep Time: 10 min Total Time: 20 min Servings: 4


1 cup Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
1/4 cup (1 medium) banana, mashed
2 tablespoons + 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled


Heat pancake to 375ºF (medium heat). Lightly grease griddle. In a medium bowl, stir together mix, mashed banana, 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter and cold water with a wire whisk. Batter will be slightly lumpy, do not overmix. Let batter stand for 2 minutes. In a small liquid measuring cup or bowl, microwave 1/4 cup peanut butter.

Spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon of batter onto the griddle and spread thin. Drizzle some peanut butter in the center of the pancake and sprinkle with some of the crumbled bacon. Top with more pancake batter, covering the bacon and peanut butter. Cook for about 1 minute on one side or until golden brown, and then flip and cook on the other side for another 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Repeat for the remaining batter, peanut butter, and bacon. Serve with bananas, peanut butter, and/or maple syrup.
