I shared this recipe a little over a year ago and it is still an Evolving Mommy household favorite. We’ve even served this to friends for brunch and it was hit.
So why am I sharing it again?
1. Because it’s yummy.
2. Also because after making peanut butter oatmeal for my peanut butter loving daughter this morning I have a craving for some peanut butter pancake delightfulness.
3. Lastly because I think you should know about this breakfast treat. If your children are anything like Maddy they probably ask for peanut butter and jelly often and what better way to surprise them than by giving it to them for breakfast, with a twist.
Try not to drool on your keyboard too much…
Oh my goodness I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Oh my goodness I love pancakes.
Hmmm. Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes. Brrr-illiant!
These little delights are fluffy, with the perfect amount of peanut buttery goodness. Add a little strawberry goodness on top and you have a dead-on flavor match for peanut butter and jelly without any actual jelly. Try it, your kids will thank you.

2 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and quartered
2 tablespoons sugar
