While we don’t eat pancakes every weekend, a few times a month I like to whip up a big batch so that I can stock the freezer with homemade frozen pancakes. Mornings are a bit frantic in our house so I love knowing that I can have a warm, wholesome breakfast ready in just 60 seconds.

Asher Mixing Pancakes

Lucky for me, my oldest loves to help “Mama mix”. Cooking with toddlers isn’t the tidiest of tasks but I believe it’s important to get your kids in the kitchen at an early age. Friends often ask why my kids aren’t picky eaters and I really believe getting them involved in the cooking process from farm to plate plays a vital role in their attitudes towards food.

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes - The Lemon Bowl

This time of year we often make pumpkin or banana pancakes but I decided to turn my son’s favorite sandwich into breakfast with these Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes. Plain yogurt keeps them light and fluffy and natural peanut butter adds tons of flavor, healthy fats and protein.

These freeze beautifully so make a double batch and thank me in the morning!

Your fork is waiting.

  1. These were a huge hit in my household! They absolutely do keep you full for a long time — can’t wait to see variations on this from you, or maaaaybe try to improvise on my own ….

  2. Aww. Asher in that BRM apron! So cute. :)

    These pancakes look amazing and I LOVE the ingredient list! Is the peanut butter the kind with peanuts and salt only? I’m always amazed how different natural peanut butters are. Mine is a runny mess, even when refrigerated.

    1. You know I used creamy natural peanut butter for this one which does have a little molasses. I prefer the kind with peanuts and salt but I don’t think it’s creamy enough for this recipe. :)

  3. I definitely agree that getting the kids involved leads to less picky eating! Although, I can’t see how any kid wouldn’t want a big batch of these…I know I do!

  4. OMG – those boys are adorable! Best kitchen helpers ever! And you could just strap me up with an iv of peanut butter, so you KNOW I’m diggin’ this recipe!!
