Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 12 pancakes


  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (Smooth or chunky both work fine)


  • Sift together flour, baking powder, and sugar.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg, then add the milk and peanut butter. Mix lightly with a fork to evenly stir in the peanut butter.
  • Add flour mix to the egg mix and stir lightly again. You don't want to work the wet batter too much because it'll make the pancakes dense.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and melt a tablespoon or two of butter (or oil). Test the skillet with a drop of water to see when it's hot enough. The drop should sizzle and evaporate rapidly.
  • Pour 1/4 cup portions of batter onto the skillet and cook until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  • Serve warm with maple or fruit syrups, and enjoy!
