chocolate peanut butter pancakes

My theme for VeganMoFo 2012 is ‘Treats and Sweets’.

‘Treats and Sweets’ also pertains to breakfast.

I hope you already knew that, but if not, have I got the breakfast for you.

After going… what, several years? without eating pancakes except for these pancakes, lately I have been on a weekly pancake schedule.

I invited my brother over for pancakes on Sunday morning. Then I was happy he didn’t want to come over, since we were out singing karaoke until 4:am. Yes, I probably invited him around 1:30am… Β nevermind.

He came over later in the day, and we enjoyed these pancakes – made with peanut butter and served with more peanut butter and maple syrup. Like a peanut butter cup in a pancake stack. Perfect for a… Sunday afternoon.

We sang everything from seventies soft rock to current rap. Yep, pancakes were a good call for a ‘late breakfast’.

You just slip out the back, Jack, make a new plan, Stan

    These peanut butter pancakes look great, hard to resist a stack of these pancakes. Is there anything better than a combination of peanut butter, cocoa and maple syrup?! YUM!

  3. says

    Suddenly, I’m feeling the need for pancakes!! I am going to try these with almond instead of peanut butter (though I know the PB would be fabulous. . . .I am SO missing my peanut butter!). They look amazing.

  4. says

    Yum!!! I’m such a huge peanut butter junkie so these pancakes are totally up my alley, plus anything with chocolate is awesome in my book. Sounds deee-lish :-)

  5. says

    Oh Em Gee. Puhleeeeze make your way to Chicago on Sunday to bring me these?? I LOVE peanut butter, I LOVE chocolate, and I LOVE pancakes. ridiculous.

    Hello! I really want to try these, but what is xantham gum, and is it something I need if I am making them non-vegan? :)

    • spabettie says

      hi Cathy! I use xanthan gum with my gluten free flours – it mimics gluten in baked goods. if you are using normal flours, you do not need to use it (and you can use gluten free flours without it also – the pancakes might not be as “fluffy”. hope you enjoy!
