So….breakfast this weekend.

I got you covered.

No need to wake up Saturday or Sunday morning and think of what “special” thing to make because you finally have more than 5 minutes to shove it down your throat before getting out the door.

Did you know it was pancake week?

Of course you did. You’ve probably read it at least 100 times over like I have, bookmarked at least 10 delicious pancake recipes (you can see all 25+ of mine there!) to try out and wondered what the hell this whole Shrove thing was, right?

Or is that just me?

Totally had never even heard the word “shrove” until this week, reinforcing what a good Catholic I am I’m not.

Peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes with peanut butter topping are doughy, fluffy and delicious for breakfast!

It’s almost a stretch even calling these pancakes because they taste like straight up dessert.

There’s peanut butter and chocolate chips in them and on top. They remind me of a more decadent version of these sweet potato chocolate chip pancakes.

Orange juice will not suffice alongside, you’re going to want to pour yourself a glass of milk instead.

Healthy peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes - try a stack this weekend for breakfast!

And just in case you’re struggling with some post meal guilt after these lovelies (which you really shouldn’t be because hey, they’re whole wheat and packed with protein!)…

All can be erased by eating an entire sheet pan of roasted vegetables for dinner.

Not that I’d know anything about that.

Side note – if you want two great protein packed pancake recipes try these protein pancakes and these pumpkin protein pancakes. They’re sure to keep you satisfied for hours with the amount of healthy protein in those guys!

These pineapple buckwheat pancakes are also a great non-traditional protein protein pancake option with some sneaky cottage cheese in that recipe.

Enjoy! Unless you’re one of those people that gave up chocolate for lent (fools…kidding!).

    What the heck! Did you just whip this up this morning!?!? I’m dying to make pancakes but I have to wait until this weekend and it is literally KILLING me.

    These just look incredible. I want them sitting in front of me right now.

          It’s a miracle if I can even get myself out of bed before 7am, let alone cook, photograph and post about it. Ha!

    1. Running to the Kitchen Post author

      Oops forgot to answer this one…yeah it would work, it will just be a bit more “earthy” and hearty tasting. You might want to increase the milk a little bit too.

    oh! and have you ever used corn flour? kind of random, but I bought a bag a few days ago, as I was craving corn bread, fritters, corn pancakes, etc. but can’t seem to “perfect” my own recipe. I figured I’d leave it to the professionals (aka, you :)!!)

    1. Running to the Kitchen Post author

      I’ve only used corn meal, which I assume is the same as corn flour just not ground (grinded?) as fine. My favorite use is in breakfast bakes. Ashley at Edible Perspective has a microwave corn flour one that I make all the time. So good and quick!

    You make the best looking pancakes always. I haven’t made pancakes in sooo so long, I just never have the desire to cook anything “elaborate” in the morning. And I feel bad for anyone who gave up chocolate…. not this girl!

  4. Julie @ Table for Two

    ahhhhhh these look SO SO good!! I totally would love to indulge in these for breakfast one morning..or multiple mornings. the combination of peanut butter instead of syrup and chocolate chips just sounds perfect!! yum yum!!

  5. channing [channingosity]

    YUM!! so many amazing pancake recipes this week, but this looks so decadent and delish. i have some whole wheat pastry flour that i have had no idea what to do with [after the cookie recipe i bought it for a few months ago!] and this is definitely the answer. perfecto! happy weekend!!

  6. Heidi @ Food Doodles

    Wow, these look so fluffy! That always equals an awesome pancake in my books :D And I actually have coconut flour right now! I think that alone calls for pancakes this weekend :) My hubby doesn’t like it when I mess with his plain old boring pancakes, but he can have those and I’m going to try these :D

  7. Cate

    I recently made your coconut flour pancakes and now I must try these! (the coconut flour pancakes were so good, by the way!)

      I’m not big on the whole “giving up” part (I’d rather try and “better” something for 40 days) but that’s one I could definitely use some improvement on. Huge potty mouth over here!

    The fact that I missed out on eating pancakes for “Fat Tuesday” is my excuse for the fact that I may eat them for multiple meals this weekend. And this recipe will definitely be included! Mmm….
    Thank you for sharing! <3

    1. Running to the Kitchen Post author

      I missed out on Tuesday too so I’m doing the same. Just had pineapple pancakes this morning too! :)

  9. Jen

    I’m definitely making these post-run tomorrow. I’m not excited to run in the cold tomorrow, but thinking of these yummy pancakes will make it so much easier!

    I am very excited to make these tomorrow night. My fiance loves all of the ingredients so I am thinking he will absolutely love them. I do have a quick question regarding the peanut butter sauce you use. You say to mix peanut butter with milk. Do you have the parts of how much peanut butter to milk you use? Do you melt the peanut butter first?

    1. Running to the Kitchen Post author

      I honestly don’t remember. I probably heated 2T of pb in the microwave for a few seconds to get it creamy and then stirred in milk until I got a good pourable consistency. Just play with it a bit until you get it how you want.
