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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

My family thought that these pancakes had too much of a peanut butter taste. And my kids love peanut butter.

My husband and I loved these!!! We had these with an apple cinnamon homemade syrup, which overpowered the peanut butter taste. Next time maybe we'll add more peanut butter...

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.

My 23 month old daughter absolutely loves these! And she won't eat normal pancakes at all (even Mickey Mouse shaped ones), these will definitely be a regular breakfast rotation for our family.

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!

A rich delicious breakfast treat. I added some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips for a little something extra.

I made these pancakes for my husband and he loved them. I stayed to the recipe and these turned out perfectly; although next time I will add mini chocolate chips.
