Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes

My kids are breakfast eaters. They are pretty picky at the best of times, so they rarely eat a good dinner, but come breakfast they are starving and luckily enough it’s one meal that they actually love. So we often have a breakfasty type lunch and one favourite is pancakes.

Last week, I was just about to make a big batch of pancakes for lunch when I noticed the peanut butter jar still on the counter from breakfast and lightening struck! Why not marry the two! I almost just scooped some PB into our boxed mix but decided to go all Martha Stewart and make them from scratch. I looked at a few recipes on the web, including this one from recipe boy, but I knew I could do a little better and inspired by his, I created my own.

  5. Absolutely mouth-watering! I would of never thought to put all those ingredients together.

  6. I would never have thought to put peanut butter in them. I might just have to try that.

    *coff* Pancakes are one of those things that you just should mix yourself. :):) Try it three times and you won’t even need a recipe anymore.

  14. Linda Bragg says:

    Well now I have never tried adding anything to experiment in my pancakes but I think it might be time to try!! My hubby has always taken peanut butter and jam sandwiches with him every day to work….along with a reg. meat sandwich too!! I might add. So maybe peanut butter in our pancakes just might be ok… I am definitely going to try it…..but think I will add to already boxed pancake mix first. hope he likes it…..time will tell. 🙂 gonna surprise him!!
