Peanut Butter Pancakes

Oh yes.  I went there.  Peanut Butter Pancakes.  You may have noticed that I have a love affair with peanut butter?  I love anything peanut butter really.  Nothing is safe!  Not even pancakes…

I just knew there had to be a recipe out there somewhere that would fill my peanut butter pancake hankering!  So I went in search of one and I found the perfect recipe ever from The History Kitchen.  These are Rosa Parks Peanut Butter Pancakes. (the post where I got the recipe from talks about the history behind these pancakes…it’s wonderful to read)

And they are divine.  Deeeeevine.

Peanut Butter Pancakes

These pancakes have the perfect amount of peanut butter flavour, and at the same time they are the fluffiest pancakes ever!  A delicious, fluffy, peanut-buttery treat.  Mmmmm





Peanut Butter Pancakes


  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp melted butter


  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. In another bowl whisk together the egg, milk, peanut butter and melted butter. I actually use a hand blender to do this, so the mixture is smooth (it’s hard to mix in the peanut butter with out it).
  3. Then add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, and lightly combine. As always with pancake batter, it can be a little lumpy.
  4. Let the batter sit for about 5 minutes before you cook the pancakes. You will notice that the batter will fluff up a lot.
  5. Cook the pancakes on medium heat grill.


  • We have made these pancakes with whole wheat flour too, and they are good. Not quite as fluffy, but they are tasty. I just used 1/2 cup white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour.
  • These pancakes are amazing served with jam, or syrup, or even just butter!

Recipe from The History Kitchen

Try them this weekend!  SO good!

Have a delicious day!

    Sunbutter is an excellent sub for peanut butter! I adore peanuts, but they give me migraines… 🙂

    Trader Joe’s has a great one, as does the Sunbutter name brand. The only drawback is that it’s $$$.

    Love your photo styling, Jo-Anna!
