Warning: if you are allergic to peanut butter, I’m truly sorry because this post rants and raves about how amazing peanut butter is.
Ok. Now that that’s cleared up, let’s talk about chocolate and peanut butter.
Whoever decided these two flavors should be friends is truly a gift to mankind. The sweet richness of chocolate is the perfect balance for the saltiness of creamy peanut butter, so it’s no wonder there are so many recipes that use them together.
Lucky for you, these pancakes are like eating a Reece's Peanut Butter cup for breakfast, and after one bit, you’ll be hooked!
This recipe doesn’t require very many ingredients, but each one is very important to the overall taste and texture of the pancakes. I’ve tested this recipe five or six times to make sure everything was absolutely perfect!
Here’s what you’ll need to make my Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes:
Out of all these ingredients, the most important one is the peanut butter powder. I always always always keep this magic stuff on hand because it is so versatile!
I can make regular peanut butter with it or I can add it to my baking as a dry ingredient (rather than a wet ingredient). It lowers the calorie count and the grams of fat but keeps the protein content; I basically treat it like a pseudo protein powder!
If you don’t have any, go to the store and buy some. You won’t regret it!
If you must, there are a few substitutions you could make with this recipe.
I have not personally tried some of these combinations, so please note that they could work, but the taste and texture will be different.
I can't wait to hear how much you love these pancakes! They are a family favorite and perfect for any occasion, whether it's a school morning, a weekend breakfast, or a holiday brunch.
