Peanut Butter Pancakes

A couple of weeks ago, I felt that it was time to shake things up a bit for breakfast.  I wanted to make some pancakes, but not just any pancakes.  I needed to make something new!  I looked in the pantry and my eyes stopped at the Peanut Butter.  YES, Peanut Butter Pancakes!

So, I took out the box of Aunt Jemima Original Dry mix (the Wheat would work as well) and followed the instructions on the box.  Then added in:
  • 1/3 cup Natural Jif Peanut Butter (or your favorite peanut butter)
  • 2 Tbs. Brown Sugar
    ** you may need to add more liquid (I had to splash some milk in)
Here are some variations and add-ins that we came up with:
  • Peanut Butter chips - Double Peanut Butter explosion
  • Chocolate chips - Reese's
  • Banana w/ bacon - Elvis. 
  • Top with your favorite Jelly/Jam - PB&J
Give them a shot! Be Creative!  My Kids LOVED them, and they loved creating their own version with the Add-Ins!  Having fun in the kitchen as a family is a great way to spend a Saturday morning!

If you come up with a new variation, let me know!
