Conventional chunky peanut butter works best in this recipe; the natural-style peanut butter (ground peanuts and oil) is difficult to stir into a liquid batter. Serve these with the Strawberry-Lemon Syrup, the Raspberry-Honey Coulis, or any kind of jam.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups fat-free milk
1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
1 tablespoon roasted peanut oil or vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
How to Make It
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Combine milk and remaining ingredients; add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth.
Spoon about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot nonstick griddle or a large nonstick skillet. Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked.

I enjoyed this recipe. I was a little skeptical about the peanut butter at first. I thought it would make the pancake batter too heavy, thick, and sweet. I mixed the peanut butter in very well and the pancakes came out light, fluffy, with a light peanut butter taste. I served this to my family with maple syrup and raspberries. It was delicious.
Yum! Easy to make and came together quickly in the blender. My 4 & 6 yo loved them, and parents liked too. I put chocolate chips in which kind of overpowered the peanut butter, but the one I had without chocolate chips was very good. This is one we will make again, kids will ask for them!
