PEANUT BUTTER PANCAKES – These perfectly fluffy pancakes have a delicious hint of peanut butter flavor, making them a perfect go with for tasty additions like bananas, chocolate, or both!
— 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter(plus more for drizzling if desired)
— 2 tbsp baking powder
— 1 cup all-purpose flour
— 2 tbsp granulated sugar
— 1 large egg
— 1/2 tsp salt
— 1 1/4 whole milk
— 1 tbsp vegetable oil
— Chocolate sauce, for drizzling (optional)
— Peanut butter cups, chopped for garnish (optional)
In a microwave-safe bowl, add peanut butter. Microwave for 15-second intervals, mixing in between, until peanut butter reaches a sauce-like consistency. Set bowl aside.
Bring to a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Set bowl aside.
In a large measuring cup or medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and vegetable oil.
Slowly pour melted peanut butter in with egg mixture, whisking while pouring.
Add the dry ingredients to the bowl, mixing until combined but still lumpy.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. Preheat griddle to 275 degrees F. Note: If using a pan or a griddle that does not have a nonstick coating, spray the cooking surface with cooking spray before adding pancake batter.
Scoop out 1/4 cup pancake batter and pour onto the heated griddle, spreading out gently into a round shape. Cook until the top of the pancake begins to bubble and the bottom turns golden brown, about 3 – 4 minutes. Flip pancake and cook opposite side for 1 minute. Repeat this step until all batter is used. Tip: depending on the size of your griddle, you should be able to cook 6-8 pancakes at a time.
Serve pancakes immediately with chocolate syrup, more melted peanut butter, and chopped peanut butter cups (garnishes optional).
