PB & J Pancakes

Breakfast food is my all-time favorite. Maybe it's because we don't usually have the time for a hot breakfast everyday. Or maybe it's because there is such a wide variety of things to serve for breakfast. In fact, there are so many recipes for pancakes alone that it could make your head spin. I was craving pancakes the other night and I searched the food network for a new and unique recipe. I was planning on trying the Tyler Florence recipe that has been so popular lately, but I found this one instead. This is a recipe from Sunny Anderson's show, Cooking for Real.
I can remember watching this episode and thinking she was on to something with this recipe.
I am not exaggerating when I say that I don't know if I have ever been so impressed with a recipe before!! I was expecting them to be good, but they blew my socks off!!

The recipe is easy, quick and produces perfectly fluffy and golden brown peanut butter pancakes! The jelly syrup is pure genius! This is a wonderfully written recipe with the perfect balance of peanut butter flavor and just the right amount of sweetness in the syrup. The pancakes puff up in the pan and are so tender they will melt in your mouth.

I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed this recipe. Even my husband said they were a full blown 10, and he hardly ever says that. This means a lot coming from him, especially when there is no meat involved.

If you need more proof of just how good this recipe truly is, then check here. It has been rated 5 stars by 45 people on the food network website. If you like peanut butter and jelly you will not be disappointed.


  1. Oh, what I would give for a bite of that! Since I could never serve that in my house, I will enjoy it vicariously through you. Yum. Take a bite for me!

  2. I love peanut butter and jelly to NO END. These would be absolutely perfect for me. I am more a fan of hot breakfast foods for lunch or dinner than for breakfast. If that makes sense. They just don't keep me as full as oatmeal, but when they're for dinner I don't feel as weird about eating them with sausage or some other meat.
