Peanut Butter Strawberry Pancakes aka Peanut Butter & Jelly Pancakes

The following recipes were inspired by a recent impulse purchase by hubby of Strawberry Peanut Butter M&M’s which were actually pretty good. I figured with Strawberry season is on the way, it would be a good time to try these out.

Peanut Butter Feather Pancakes

2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder (this is what makes them feathery)

1/3 cup JIF Peanut Butter
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • In a small bowl, beat egg with Jif until blended. Stir in milk and melted butter.
  • Add all at once to the dry ingredients, beating until blended. Add more milk to thin batter if necessary.
  • Bake on a hot, lightly greased griddle until bubbles break on the surface. Turn and brown the other side.

Peanut Butter Strawberry Pancakes

1/2 cup JIF Creamy Peanut Butter
2 tablespoon sugar
2 large eggs
1¼ cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup Strawberry Jam

  • In separate bowl, whisk together peanut butter, sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla.
  • Stir wet mixture into dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.
  • Heat non-stick skillet over medium heat; brush with oil. Swirl half of jam into pancake batter.
  • Pour about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake into skillet.
  • Cook for 1½ to 2½ minutes or until underside is golden and bubbles break out on top. Turn and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until underside is golden.
  • Repeat with remaining batter, spooning remaining jam into batter, and brushing skillet with more oil as necessary.

When I read the title, I figured that you would add the peanut butter and jelly on the finished pancake. I had no idea that you would add it to the batter. This is something that I will definitely be trying. Thank you for the recipe and the idea 🙂
