Hello, my name is Kendra and I’m a peanut butter addict ;). Judging by the 21 (!!) pancake recipes here on the blog, I should probably add pancake addict in there too! These pancakes are a perfect combination of those two addictions. They’re light and fluffy with a subtle peanut butter flavor. The peanut butter flavor is not overpowering at all. In fact, if you wanted a stronger flavor you could easily add more peanut butter. I topped mine with some lightly sweetened mashed strawberries the first day, and the second day I topped them with a layer of peanut butter and a thin layer of jelly. Either way they’re delicious, or if you’re feeling more traditional you could top them with maple syrup. I bet a lot of you are like me and heading to the beach in the next few weeks. These pancakes won’t totally blow your clean-eating diet either. Enjoy!
