Peanut Butter Pancakes

IMG_4529My husband had to go away for business last week and I don’t know about you, but sometimes it seems silly to just cook for one.

The first couple of nights I had BBQ chicken that I made in the crockpot, which worked out great because I had a lot of leftovers that held me over for a few days. When I finally ran out of chicken, I had been cleaning all day and doing laundry, so I didn’t really feel like making a full-on dinner… But didn’t want to go the store.

A quick pantry check left me with Bisquick, eggs and peanut butter…

Um… Peanut butter pancakes? 

I guess those would just have to do! 🙂

Sometimes it’s nice to have those easy dinners that are comforting and delicious! It was the perfect meal for me, and since I only made them for myself I made the whole batch, ate what I wanted, then wrapped up the leftovers and put them in the fridge.

Tip: these peanut butter pancakes make a quick and yummy breakfast. Just wrap them up in a paper towel and put them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds (or pop them in the toaster oven). They don’t even need syrup because of the peanut butter, making it even easier to grab and go in the morning.

Bonus Tip: You could make them even more nutritious by adding some fruit, oats or even nuts to the batter.IMG_4526

Ingredients:

1 cup Bisquick
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 egg
1/3 cup all natural peanut butter (I used all Natural Skippy)

Directions:

  1. Using a large skillet, turn stove on to medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Once the pan is hot, use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop out batter and pour into the pan (about 3-4 at a time depending on the size of the skillet).
  3. Turn heat down to medium and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly golden. Make sure to spray the pan after each batch.

Enjoy with some melted butter on top, syrup or even plain!peanut butter pancakes
