Since the grocery deal this week is peanut butter I thought it would be a perfect time to post about this simple and fun recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes. As you can imagine, my kids were all over these and loved every bite. The peanut butter is not extremely strong but ads a delicious nuttiness to these pancakes that goes perfectly with a little chocolate. I liked the bananas on top with just a small drizzle of real maple syrup. I am sure a butter syrup would be great on these too, but with the chocolate chips they don’t really need extra sweetness. This is a great recipe to help use up the peanut butter in your storage, and an unusually delightful recipe for this upcoming weekend’s breakfasts 😉
