Father's Day Peanut Butter Pancakes

Pancakes and Waffles are a weekend favorite for us. 
When I told Abby it was Father's Day, I loved her idea (and I am sure Lucy would agree). 
She said, "Dad needs a special breakfast!" 
So after some searching, this is what we all thought would be his favorite...Peanut Butter Pancakes!

Peanut Butter Pancakes
recipe from Crepes of Wrath


1 cup all purpose flour 
1 tbsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp salt 
2 tbsp sugar 
1 egg 
1 cup, plus 3 tbsp milk (plus more if batter is too thick) 
1/2 cup peanut butter, melted 
2 tbsp vegetable oil 
1 tbsp butter 


1. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk all the wet ingredients. Combine the two. If batter seems too thick add some extra milk, one tablespoon at a time, until batter is thinner.

2. Heat the griddle over medium heat and spread 1 tablespoon of butter on the griddle using a paper towel. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto to griddle and allow to cook 3-4 minutes per side. They don't bubble like regular pancakes so watch closely! Makes 10-12 pancakes.

3. Serve with warm maple syrup and chocolate chips on top!

*I usually put chocolate chips in our pancakes, but this time I was afraid it would take away from the peanut butter flavor. Next time, I will give it a try and let you know how it goes!

  1. Yummy! These definitely look divine. I might try these with almond butter instead of peanut just because I think that almond butter is just about the world's most perfect food! Thanks for sharing!

  2. My husband would flip for these. Aw geez, did I just say flip? Somehow I manage to speak in puns without even meaning it. Sorry!

    Love the chocolate chips on top too -- the perfect compliment to PB!
