Delightfully sinful pancakes made with whole wheat flour, chocolate chips, and peanut butter!
Tomorrow is the last day of school for my daughter. I don't know what I am going to do all summer now with her and the baby home all day. I love my babies but having them both home at the same time is a lot to deal with. Especially while trying to create new blog posts, getting schoolwork done, and photographing and editing. Yikes! Maybe it won't be as bad as I make it out to be. It usually isn't and this year Alyssa is old enough to help out with the baby so maybe I'll actually get more work done. Eh… wishful thinking? Probably… Hopefully not. Haha. Mom struggles.
Anyway, I am excited that school is over because it means that I get to spend more time with my babies. Taking them out for bike rides and to the park and to the beach and wherever else we decide to go to.
It also gives me more time to make delicious breakfasts… like these peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes… because I have all morning instead of just a few short minutes before heading out the door to school. God knows I love to take my sweet time in the morning getting things done. But I also love to make pancakes (or waffles) in the morning for my girls.
I am a huge pancake lover. You can make just about anything into a pancake and they are almost always delicious. So why not combine two of my most favorite things… chocolate and peanut butter? Yes please! It's really hard to go wrong with anything that has chocolate and peanut butter in it.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes
- 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Heat electric griddle over medium heat, about 325 degrees, lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt until combined. Add egg, peanut butter, milk, honey, and vanilla and mix until just combined.
- Scoop batter by 1/4 cupful and sprinkle with a few chocolate chips. Cook until bubbles start to form on the top, about 2-3 minutes, and flip. Continue cooking on other side for additional 2-3 minutes or until cooked through.
- Repeat until batter is gone.
- Serve immediately topped with your favorite topping or extra melted peanut butter.
