Peanut Butter Pancakes

"This was in the "Family Fun" magazine. It said you could also freeze the extra pancakes between layers of waxed paper and re-heat them in the microwave for 35 seconds, flipping halfway through."

  1. My daughter and husband both give these pancakes two thumbs up! I do too. :) I used all natural creamy peanut butter and it gave these a nice peanut butter taste, not too much, just enough. I also used whole wheat flour to make them healthier and 2 eggs instead of one to boost the protein content. The pancakes turned out fluffy and where surprisingly fairly light as well. These do brown quite quickly, so take caution when using the heat. In the beginning a few turned out almost black, but I made adjustments and they turned out great. Definitely cook these on low to medium heat and keep your eye on them. I can see a lot of possibilities with this recipe ... mixing banana and peanut butter, adding chocolate chips or making small pancake and jam sandwiches. It will be a regular in our house. Thanks so much!!
  2. batter was too thick.
  3. The only thing I have noticed is that it says 2 tablespoons of milk and I know for a fact that it should be 2 cups. Other than that Fantastic! Thanks for the recipe will be a family favorite for a long time. Cpl Prebula
  4. This recipe turned out great!! I used whole wheat flour and and added chocolate chips also. I also had to add more milk so the pancakes were thinner and wouldn't burn. I had never made peanut butter pancakes. These were delicious!
  5. We are peanut butter lovers, and this recipe is amazing! Per previous suggestions, I added an extra egg and a banana. This has become my new go to pancake recipe. YUM!
