So, in another post recently I was talking about how peanut butter just makes everything better. And really, when I look at these pancakes I just know that truer words were never spoken.
What’s that saying? ‘It’s the best thing since sliced bread’. I think it should have rather been: ‘It’s the best thing since peanut butter!‘
Whatever the ‘thing’ is. Cos I think it could be argued that peanut butter is the best invention ever.
These chocolate chip peanut butter pancakes take something that is simply amazing – pancakes -and then add on layers upon layers of deliciousness: peanut butter and chocolate chips, and melted peanut butter and melted chocolate.
Is this breakfast or dessert or what?
The basic pancake recipe I’ve taken from my vegan pancakes with jam and cream. Because as a base recipe, it’s a total winner. And from there I just added in some peanut butter and some chocolate chips!
The peanut butter flavor in the actual pancakes is subtle, not strong. But then you top them with some melted peanut butter to really make that peanut butter flavor pop!
The chocolate chips of course go all melty and delicious and that mixes with the peanut butter flavor and basically it equals a party in your mouth.
This recipe makes around 6 pancakes, depending on how big you make them.
I’m thinking you’re totally going to love these chocolate chip peanut butter pancakes. I mean the reasoning is all already there in the name! But here’s a few more reasons! They are:
- Peanut Butter Flavored
- Breakfast and Dessert!
- So easy
Enjoy them with melted peanut butter and chocolate for a breakfast/dessert experience of note!
