PB&J Coconut Pancakes

Happy Pancake Sunday loves!

Since I love you guys so much, I can’t bear to keep  you waiting anymore for my latest recipe. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (giveaway entry alert…click HERE!), you’ve probably caught a glimpse of the peanut butter and blueberry filled mornings I’ve been having lately…

Mmmm!

Since I’ve been tracking my calories, I’ve been taking it easy on the high calorie nut butters lately, but the other day, I had a MAD craving for PB&J and there was no resisting it! But I didn’t want just the standard sandwich, so I decided to throw a few things in a bowl and try my hand at my own version of coconut flatbread.

I’ve made coconut flatbread in the past and it came out incredible, but since I knew I wanted to LOAD it up with peanut butter, I thought I’d change things up a bit and take out the egg yolks.

I know…

*gasp*

Don’t worry my little yellow puddles of deliciousness, you’re still near and dear to my heart!

For the first version, I used about half the recipe and made myself the little blueberry PB&J mess you see on the left…but the next day, I doubled it and well…

They accidentally turned into pancakes!

Believe me, I use the term “accidentally” very, very lightly!

Topped with a bit of thinned chocolate coconut peanut butter and some of my homemade blueberry fruit puree and all my (breakfast) dreams came true!

I had every intention of making them AGAIN today to celebrate Pancake Sunday…

But this morning was a bit different.

You see, during a late night marathon of Gossip Girl, I got a little wild and woke up with the worst hangover. I know, I know…it’s just so unlike me…especially when I’m alone. I guess I was just missing BB…and also totally caught up in the ongoing shift of power between B and S.

The culprit?

Not that I’m condoning this sort of behavior, but if you dip a spoon in peanut butter (especially if it’s Cookie Nookie) and THEN in granola…oh God, just don’t!

You won’t be able to stop!

Maybe I should consider getting a sponsor…*

Unlike others who firmly believe in the “hair of the dog” approach, I didn’t even want to LOOK at peanut butter (so sad) this morning, so…

 I created a PB&J-less stack:

Clean, fresh, and 100% delicious!

But here’s the recipe for the one that started it all!

PB&J Coconut Pancakes

by Heather Powers

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10-20 minutes

Keywords: fry breakfast gluten-free high protein soy-free vegetarian no sugar added paleo coconut flour egg whites almond milk Pancake Sunday pancakes

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 3-4 egg whites (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5-7 drops liquid stevia or other sweetener (optional)
  • Your favorite jam and peanut butter + a bit of water

Instructions

1. Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle to medium heat and coat with a bit of coconut oil or non-stick cooking spray.
2. Combine all ingredients in a blender*
3. Spoon batter into skillet making 2-3 pancakes and allow to cook for 8-10 minutes per side (longer time needed for bigger cakes)
4. Layer with jam or homemade fruit puree’
5. Whisk water and peanut butter together until you get your desired consistency and then drizzle on top!

*I think the blender works best for these ingredients. You can whisk it by hand, but it takes a little “elbow grease” to work out the lumps!

Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m off to go hide all the peanut butter in the back of the pantry and hit up a class at the gym!

*In all seriousness, I just want to say this: We all make mistakes. We will occasionally falter. And heck, sometimes overindulge on peanut butter and granola until we have a tummy ache, but it’s ALL about you’re outlook….

Nobody is perfect, but each day is new!

Just do me a favor and remember that.

Love,

Heather

    I see nothing wrong with indulging on peanut butter (especially cookie nookie. Wink wink). This is why sometimes I hate calorie counting because we get so obsessed with numbers and being in deficit. Remember yes peanut butter is high in calories, but it’s good fats our body needs. And is more satisfying. If you reach for the lower calories options you’ll probably just be hungrier sooner.

    Meh to each their own I suppose. I eat by food groups, not calories.
    But of course everything looks amazingly delicious. And I want it all :). Come cook for me. Thanks :)

      And don’t forget the sugar! Haha! I guess it could’ve been worse though…I could have gone balls to the wall with a jar of Nutella! Dang, I would have been PINGING for sure!

      Thanks love! And I’d LOVE to cook for you! :)

  2. Pancakewiches! Mmmm!

  3. I did the same thing with a jar of pb last night! You are right… no one is perfect. Life would be way too boring that way… I’m so excited about these pancakes!!

  4. This is perfect – I’ve been looking for a good coconut pancakes recipe! 😀

    Also I totally agree about the magical combination of granola + nut butter! I top my oatmeal with both almost every morning!

  5. Oh my GOODNESS Heather. Seriously. How do you do this?! You need to open up a pancake restaurant. Or maybe have your own food network show for pancakes. You seriously are the pancake queen!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Awww, thanks girl! Ahhh, wouldn’t it be great to have my own breakfast joint? Pancakes, French toast, eggs any way you can think em up…and a smoothie/juice bar! Man, I should write this stuff down. You never know, I might strike it rich someday and need something to do with my time! 😉

    hot damn that looks good! i love the pancake sunday! and the pb and granola spoon trick is my favorite. Who needs a bowl? nah

  7. The PBJ pancakes looks amazing! I so over indulged in chocolate, nuts, and bread to the point that I felt really sick last night, ick. :( But you move on!

  8. julie says:

    dude! pb crave cookie nookie is legit addicting! i didn’t have self control over that and then my mom took it took work and all was right with the world hahaha

  9. Carly says:

    So I definitely thought you literally got hungover (I was like huh?) haha. Good to know it was just peanutbutter (; I may have gotten hungover on popcorn last night #again #ineedtostop

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! Yep, just the innocent looking jar of peanut butter! 😉 Oh my gosh, I just discovered my love of air popped popcorn and have become obsessed! I’ve had two HUGE bowls in the last two days…one with nooch and smoked paprika and one with cocoa and cinnamon! SO GOOD!

  10. Robyn :) says:

    Oh my those are some good looking pancakes!!!

    What exactly is Cookie Nookie? Is it like Biscoff spread?? (which, btw, has failed to make a returning appearance at the store I first found it at!).

    I have a pancake board on Pinterest thanks to you lol.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Thanks Robyn! I guess you could say it’s the same idea as Biscoff, but the taste is different…a little less buttery cookie sweet and maybe more like how raw cookie dough smells? Does that make sense? Lol So sad you haven’t been able to get it again. Actually, I’ve been steering clear of it since I polished off my last jar in a week! Whew…talk about a peanut butter hangover…I was PINGING!

      Yay for pancakes and pinterest and wait, do I follow you? If not, I need to!!

  11. I love your last statement on this post. It is absolutely about your outlook on things! It’s ok to overindulge every once and a while. It’s all about how you feel about yourself! And I’m feeling that I should overindulge in those pancakes as soon as possilbe 😉 I like your combo of cottage cheese and pancakes, sounds delishh!!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Thank you Kaitlin. We can be so hard on ourselves sometimes, but a little overindulgence shouldn’t send us into a downward spiral. I believe food should never be thought of as the enemy…I just wish more people could understand that. I mean, when you’re 80 years old and looking back on the life you’ve led, are you really going to remember that night you ate an entire sleeve of Girl Scout crack…um, I mean cookies? 😉

  13. I love your positive outlook! “We all make mistakes and no one is perfect…” Words to live by for sure:) It helps keep people from being too hard on themselves:)

    And this recipe looks incredible and I love the idea of that homemade fruit puree added to the pancake stack!
