PB&J Pancakes


I love these pancakes.
I made them for the first time a couple of years ago, when I was pregnant and craving all things jelly.
Otherwise, I would have never tried them.
PB&J just doesn’t do it for me. I know it’s a classic, but, if I’m being honest–
the thought of peanut butter and jelly in my food kind of grosses me out.
But when I saw Alli’s PB&J pancakes last week, I couldn’t get this recipe out of my head!
These are truly the fluffiest, pancakes I’ve ever had.
The peanut butter isn’t overwhelming– points there.
And the blackberry syrup is pretty killer too– not really jelly-like at all, but still contributes the perfect jelly-tasting component at the same time.
I seriously can’t say enough good things about these.
You are going to have to try them!
