Friday's Kid-Tested Recipe - Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes!

I hate sneaking food into my children's diets, so I thought I would share some of the recipes that I make with my kids (ages 4 &2)! When kids help cook, they rarely avoid the food because they helped to make it! I'll try to note steps that even the youngest children can help with in the kitchen!

What kid doesn't love PB&J?  Well, my oldest has decided that these pancakes taste better than a PB&J sandwich!  I was impressed!
(Note:  Recipe was modified from the top of a Santa Cruz Smooth Organic Peanut Butter Jar)

Peanut Butter & Jelly Pancakes


What you'll need to make it!
Your favorite pancake mix (we use boxed because it's quicker, but you can make home-made too!)
Smooth peanut butter (allergies? you could use almond or cashew butter too)
Favorite jelly or jam for topping (we used Strawberry)
(We also noted that sliced bananas dropped in while cooking would make these amazing!)

How to make it!
Mix your pancake mix as you normally would (we follow the box directions)!  Add 1/4 C. of smooth peanut butter for every 1 cup of pancake mix.  Your pancake batter will go from runny to fairly smooth so you will need a scooper to place on your skillet or hot plate!

To make the pancakes cook evenly, I cooked until lightly brown on the first side, flipped the pancakes and then mushed them down with the back of my spatula.  After that side was done, I flipped them back over to complete the cooking on the initial side!  This keeps your pancakes from being too thick!

You can see that these are really thick pancakes, so that's why I used the mushing technique!
For jelly/jam topping, scoop your jelly out of the jar and into a microwaveable container.  Microwave for 15-30 seconds until its just on the runny side but not boiling.  Pour the jelly/jam on top of the pancakes like you would syrup and serve!

Extra pancakes can be frozen, separated by wax paper, and reheated in the microwave or toaster oven!
Kids are great at pouring on the warmed jelly/jam and if they are older then they can help mix or put the pancakes on the skillet to cook!

Have a great recipe or a food/cooking blog? Feel free to link up now or send me an e-mail! I am going to start featuring recipes of others every friday...I just haven't gotten my act together yet! I'd love it if you'd grab the button, but it's not a requirement to join in!

Thanks we will have to try those at our house. My peanut loves making pancakes, her favorite is to drop pineapple in them while they cook. When you flip them they get all carmelized and yummy.
