Have you been following this blog for a while? If you have, you obviously know about my love for breakfast food. Waffles, pancakes, coffee drinks, you name it, I’ve got recipes for it. I even included a breakfast chapter in my two most recent cookbooks!
So I guess it’s not going to be a great shock to you old-timers that I’m here again with another fantastic breakfast recipe: Healthy Peanut Butter Pancakes. I’m super excited to share this recipe with you guys! Partly because they’re on the healthy side, so you can enjoy them while keeping up your post sukkos healthy goals. And partly because peanut butter is one of my favorite flavors, so its basically a combo of my two faves. What’s not to love?
The fun thing about these pancakes is they’re delicious and exciting enough for a fun sunday brunch, but as with many pancake recipes, these are ridiculously easy. We’re talking, mix a few ingredients in a bowl kind of easy. We’re talking whip them up in five minutes while the kids are getting dressed kinda easy.
I have to admit, it took me a few tries to get these work. I knew that even with whole wheat flour, almost no oil and no refined sugar, these had to be fluffy, light and super tasty, Well, after a few batches, I nailed it! These are insanely fluffy and they just taste so, so good!
Note about peanut butter powder:
Peanut butter powder is available from a number of companies, such as PB2 or Peanut Butter and Co, and is generally available near the peanut butter in the grocery store. This product has a number of advantages, especially the reduced calories. While an2 tablespoon serving of traditional peanut butter has 190 calories, a 2 tablespoon serving of the powder has only 50 calories.

1/3-1/2 cup sugar (or other sweetener) plus 1/4 cup maple syrup is an awful lot of sugar for 1.5 cups of flour! I would only use about 1tbsp sugar (total). Even with whole wheat flour and PB powder, these pancakes are not healthy for a breakfast food – they are basically dessert.
