Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes

You should know by now that breakfast is often for dinner at our house.  I happened to be perusing a Parenting Magazine while I was at the mechanic the other day and caught a recipe for Peanut Butter and Jelly pancakes.  I made a mental note before moving on to other "kid friendly" recipes.  Fast forward six hours and it's almost dinner time and I'm still not sure what to make--until I remembered this recipe.  It's very similar to my go-to pancake recipe, but with the fun addition of peanut butter.  Serve with your favorite jam or fruit syrup and your in business.

Printable Recipe
Makes about 1 1/2 dozen

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, melted
1 1/4 cup milk, more if needed

1 In a large bowl, stir together all dry ingredients.
2) Make a "well" in the center of the dry ingredients so you can see the bottom of the bowl. Add the egg to the "well" and beat with a fork.
3) Add all the remaining ingredients and stir until just combined.  If mixture is too thick, add more milk accordingly.  Allow mixture to sit 5 minutes.
4) Heat a griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. Drizzle a small amount of vegetable oil over the griddle.
5) Using a 1/4 measuring cup, pour batter onto hot pan.
6) Cook batter until bubbles begin to form and pop; flip. Griddle cakes are done when the center of the cake springs back lightly when touched. Serve with jam or fruit syrup.  Enjoy!
