Peanut butter powder is the secret to adding intense nutty flavor (without a lot of fat) to these jam-stuffed pancakes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Heat a nonstick griddle or a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Step 3

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add buttermilk and egg; stir mixture until combined.

Step 4

Spoon 3 tablespoons pancake batter onto hot griddle. Repeat procedure with 3 more tablespoons batter. Once pancakes begin to bubble, spoon 1 tablespoon strawberry spread onto 1 pancake. Top with other pancake, cooked side up, gently pressing edges to seal. Transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining batter and fruit spread for a total of 6 pancake sandwiches.

Step 5

Place baking sheet in oven. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until pancakes are thoroughly cooked. Serve with butter and powdered sugar.

Step 6

To freeze: Cool stuffed pancakes to room temperature on a wire rack. Wrap each in plastic wrap; place in a large plastic freezer bag for up to 6 months.

Step 7

To heat: Remove ­pancakes from wrapping; wrap individually with a paper towel. Microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Delicous but there is an easier way to make these

I didn't want to have to bake pancakes after I cooked them on the griddle and they were too thick anyway. Instead,after scooping batter onto griddle, I added a little bit of jam pushing down with back of spoon to nestle it firmly into batter and then used 1/2 scoop to cover the jam. Then cooked as usual for pancakes.

Very Good

I made this recipe for the 2nd time today as a part of the Cooking Light Diet.  Very good and everyone loved them.  I got a 24oz jar of PBfit powdered peanut butter at Winco for $9.98 which helped make these more affordable.  This time I used a griddle and could make more pancakes at once than I could in a skillet which sped up the process.  Will definately make again!

Super easy and delicious!

Not sure why anyone had a problem with these.  The hardest part for me was finding the peanut butter powder (Whole Foods).  Otherwise they were a snap to make and the whole family loved them.  We didn't even need the butter drizzle on top.  Served with center cut bacon.  Will definitely make again.

This is the most ridiculous, labor-intensive, disappointing pancake recipe in history. I cook a lot, and I make lots of frozen pancakes. EPIC fail.

My pancakes usually turn out like crap--too thick, too dense, whatever. These I made like three times in two weeks! They were sooooooo good! And I actually liked baking them a bit afterwards. It made the edges a little crispy. I have the ingredients to this recipe memorized because I love it! I really love the nuttiness from the whole wheat flour and the crunch from the corn meal. I made half with overripe mashed banana and half with jam. The family actually preferred the banana to the jam.  

Healthy recipes.

I like your recipes they are helping me to stay fit. I have lost some weight just by eating different. Thank for all your suggestions.  My boyfriend even likes the food I have been making.

Great change for breakfast!

I have trouble getting interested in breakfast but know it is important to rev up the metabolism. These pancake sandwiches are a great alternative to the same old egg & light toast. Super delicious and I'll freeze the rest for quick future breakfasts!

You have forsaken Me...

May 09, 2016

10/21/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy During an Online Fellowship, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear


“Therefore, thus says The Lord: I have trumpeted the call to awake, yet who has heard My call? Who has given heed and walked according to the will of The Lord?... Wicked and slothful generation! DEAF CHILDREN! You have forsaken Me, for you have filled this world with every kind of evil; behold, you have reached new heights in wickedness! Thus I must blot out the kingdoms of men, I must wipe them away and cast them from My sight, forever! Never again shall they arise, never again shall the nations do evil in My sight!”
