When you are in the mood for a decadent breakfast, I highly recommend making these pancakes. Making pancakes are usually saved for weekends or special occasions and these peanut butter pancakes are beyond delicious! But it gets even better when you top them with a creamy, sweet chocolate maple sauce garnished with crushed peanuts! Yum!
I had a huge sweet tooth this morning and found this amazing recipe online and adapted it just a little.
This recipe was adapted from here:
- 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seeds mixed with 3 tbsp water)
- 1/4 cup peanut flour
- 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp crushed peanuts
- Make the flax egg and set aside.
- Mix together the flours, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl.
- In a small bowl, mix together almond milk, vanilla, and maple syrup.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
- Add in the crushed peanuts and stir.
- Pour pancake batter by 1/4 cup onto a hot, greased griddle over medium heat until golden brown on each side.
- Top the pancakes with the chocolate maple sauce by mixing together 1 tbsp cocoa powder with 1 tbsp maple syrup. (You will need to stir for a few minutes to really mix the two ingredients together.)
- Pour the chocolate maple sauce over the pancakes and sprinkle on some crushed peanuts!
I love the taste of peanut butter and chocolate, and having them first thing in the morning is a great way to start the day! And if you’re not a big chocolate lover, then you can just eat these plain with regular maple syrup. Or try adding peanut butter on top and maybe even some banana slices. Ooh banana slices would even go great with the peanut butter pancakes and chocolate sauce too!
