Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes

Sometimes deciding what to eat for breakfast can become a big debate in my house.  My daughter wanted a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and my son wanted pancakes.  They were both reasonable requests, but I decided putting the two ideas together would be a much more fun way to enjoy breakfast.  They loved the idea and we went to work.  The kids love strawberry jam on their PB&J sandwiches so it was easy to make a syrup to mimic the same flavors.  The meal was done in a few minutes and I had some very happy kids enjoying breakfast without arguing. Now that's a great way to start the morning. :)

Ingredients for Pancakes:
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
3 tsp of baking powder
1Tbs of sugar
1 1/2 tsp of baking soda
3 eggs
3 cups buttermilk
1 cup regular (cow's) milk
1- 2 cups of peanut butter chips
pinch of salt
butter for frying

Note: if you do not have peanut butter chips, substitute a cup of peanut butter to the batter.

Directions:
Heat a skillet on medium heat and melt some butter. I melted about 2-3Tbs of butter and put it into a dish so I could easily butter the pan between pancakes.  Pour your batter into the skillet to cook like you would a regular pancake. I used a 1/2 measuring cup to try to make the same size pancakes. 





Ingredients for Strawberry-Maple Syrup
1/2 cup of maple syrup
1 cup of strawberry jam
1/4 cup of fresh strawberries

Directions: 
Place all ingredients in a saucepan and gently heat on medium-low heat and stir occasionally.  Serve warm over pancakes. 



 Makes 10-15 large pancakes.  Enjoy.

  10. Dare I say it? I don't like PB&J! I'd love the pancakes without the fruit, and the fruit on any other pancake, though. Looks like this should be a hit with kids, too! :)

  13. Mmmm! Good thinking to put the two breakfast requests together! The husband loves peanut butter on his waffles at breakfast. I'm sure PB&J pancakes would be right up his alley. :)

  16. What a great compromise. I can see why both kids were happy. Mornings can be challenging around here too, so anything to make them smoother is always good. Great idea!

  20. I love that you used whole wheat flour in the pancakes!! Sometimes I make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches using pancakes as the "bread", but this idea is so much cooler. :)

  21. Oh wow, I'm drooling! I love PB&J like no other, but I also love pancakes; those two are two of my favorite foods. I can't believe I didn't think of combining the two, you're a genius! I love your problem solving skills with your kids, it's great to come to an agreement that satisfies everyone :) Beautiful photos as well!
