Peanut Butter Pancakes

Peanut butter lovers will love these nutty peanut butter pancakes that are slathered in peanut butter and sprinkled with additional chopped peanuts. They're subtly sweet on their own, but if you want them sweeter, drizzle with additional maple syrup.

Nutrition Profile:


  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup whole-wheat flour

  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 5 tablespoons smooth natural peanut butter, divided

  • ¾ cup whole milk

  • ¼ cup unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped


  1. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together in a small bowl; set aside.

  2. Whisk eggs, maple syrup and 3 tablespoons peanut butter together in a medium bowl. Gradually add milk, whisking constantly until incorporated.

  3. Gently whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined.

  4. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Working in batches, use a ¼-cup scoop to add batter to the pan; cook until bubbles start to appear and edges look dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until golden brown, cooked through and firm to the touch in the center, 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter, coating the pan with cooking spray between batches.

  5. Spread the remaining 2 tablespoons peanut butter on the pancakes and sprinkle with peanuts.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
