It all begins with peanut butter.

Don’t most things start with peanut butter? Lunches as a kid, first days of school, breakfast every morning…

Maybe it’s just me.

But sometimes, I think my life revolves around peanut butter (and chocolate, of course).  Not that I’m complaining.

I used the recipe for whole wheat chocolate peanut butter pancakes, left out the chocolate, and then smothered the pancakes with melted peanut butter and a jam topping.

I love smothering.

 

Peanut Butter Pancakes

serves 3-4

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs, well beaten

2 cups milk

2 tablespoons canola oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 tablespoons peanut butter, melted + additional for drizzling

Stir together dry ingredients. Add eggs, milk, vanilla and oil. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in peanut butter. Cook on preheated pan until bubbles form and edges start to dry. Flip and cook until lightly browned.

Top with additional melted peanut butter and jelly.

 

Jelly Topping

1/4 cup strawberries

1/4 cup blueberries

1/4 cup jam of choice

1-2 tablespoons water

1-2 tablespoons maple syrup

In a small saucepan, combine blueberries, strawberries and water over low heat. Mash the berries and add jam, stirring until mixture becomes mostly liquid and warm. Stir in syrup. Drizzle over pancakes.

Favorite peanut butter and jelly combo?

    OH MY GOD. My mom has restricted me from peanut butter because she thinks I’m eating it too fast. Hmm. Otherwise NOTHING would stop me from making these pancakes.

    I love a good PB&J combo…
    On toast of course, with some banana slices.
    I also like making a PB&J “grilled cheese,” minus the cheese part.
    The PB totally melts and it is fabulous!

    Never have been a fan of peanut butter and jelly – my brother used to make a grilled peanut butter and jelly and it would ooze out whenever he took a bite.

    That being said, your pancakes look amazing!

    leave out the jam (I know, I am the Only Person On Earth that doesn’t love pb and j…) and these would be fabulous to me…

    in fact, that chocolate you left out? you can go ahead and put it on top with the pb… oh and a side of bacon.

    When I was young my mom used to make peanut butter waffles. Melted peanut butter is like heaven on Earth. We topped ours with maple syrup instead of jelly. Wow that was one intense breakfast. The jelly topping looks delish. Love that its homemade.
