Happy Sunday, loves!
It only seemed fitting that the first celebration of Pancake Sunday include more
And I thought, what better way to introduce it than with a combo that’s proven to be popular in the past? Based on my Peanut Butter Pumpkin Cake for One that was a TOTAL hit last year, these pancakes are FULL of peanut butter and pumpkin flavor, incredibly
moist SEXY, and protein-PACKED!
Sing it with me now…
♫ Peanaaaaaaaaa-ut, peanut butter…and PUMPKIN! ♫
Please tell me I’m not the only one who knows the PB&J song! I worked at a daycare when I was in high school and we’d sing this with the kids all the time…and yeah, I still catch myself humming it whenever I’m whipping up a sandwich! 😉
But BACK to the PANCAKES!!
Seriously guys, I don’t know which was better, the actual ‘cakes or the fusion of flavors from the yogurt, cocoa, and peanut butter sauces! And with the crunch of peanuts and cacao nibs? Omg, I was in HEAVEN…for the whole 5 minutes these were on my plate! 😉
Absolute, melt-in-your-mouth PUMPKIN perfection!

I can see a WHOLE LOT of my pumpkin stash going to more of these!
And even though I haven’t tracked a single calorie since February, I couldn’t help but get a little curious with this recipe, so I plugged it into my old recipe analyzer
(under the “tools” tab) annnnnnd…
BAM…twenty FIVE grams of protein, baby!
Peanut flour is a wonderful thing, people…worth EVERY penny! I’ve been buying it for three years now and have never let myself run out! You can use it for baking, super human pancakes, sauces and spreads, or even mixed in oats/yogurt for a burst of peanut butter flavor with a butt-load of protein! I seriously can’t rave about this stuff any more!
Go to iHerb.com and use coupon code QQQ940 for up to $10 off your first order!
Do you really need any MORE convincing?! Go make these…NOW!
What is your favorite foodie item to buy online?
Ah! I just had pancakes! AND the contained Yogurt (aka Quark, since I can not buy greek yogurt) – BUT no peanut flour BUT oatbran. Although, they clearly didn’t NEARLY look as perfect as yours, woooow, please, write a pancake book!! I’d buy it a hundred times to spread it here in Switzerland!!
I just made a order at vitacost, and I ALWAYS order – be prepared – cooking spray. Haha, yes 🙂 no cooking spray here, but I LOVE it!
Awww, thanks lovie! I would surely hire you as my PR person! xoxo
Have you ever thought about ordering a Misto? http://www.amazon.com/Misto-Brushed-Aluminum-Olive-Sprayer/dp/B00004SPZV You can add your own oil and it’s reusable! I’ve had mine for over a year now and swear by it! 🙂
i LOVE peanut flour these days girl!!!!! SO THANKFUL FOR THESE PANCAKES! Whipping up a batch RIGHT now and will think of you the entire time <3 I've been waiting for this moment! I LOVE YOU YOU BEAUTIFUL FREIND OF MINE!
Welp… you know my thoughts on peanut butter 😛 Buuuuuut, you do make it look incredibly appealing… in that: “this’ll be the death of me” kind of way 😉 I honestly don’t think there’s anything that can take the place of peanut flour in a recipe… at least not in terms of consistency and nutritional value. Pesky peanuts.
And pretty much the only foodie item I order online is my favourite tea from Harney & Sons. I manage to make it down to the States often enough to restock my stash with all the things that Canada lacks, but if I didn’t, then Justin’s maple almond butter would top my list. That stuff is a MUST for me.
gosh i love PB flour. It goes with everything! can you make a PB and bacon pancakes next?
Ask…and you shall receive! 😀
I’m seriously drooling right now! I’d totally make these as soon as I get out of bed, but darn it, I don’t have all the ingredients. I see a trip to the grocery store in my near future!
These look SO good! Minus the peanut flour… is there any alternative that you think would work as a replacement!?
I don’t really order anything online, like ever. I don’t know why – I guess I just figure it’s too much of a hassle! Plus I can find pretty much all of my favourite foods in stores near me, with the exception of Barney Butter. But I just make sure to buy like 10 jars every time I visit the US!
Haha! I always picture the clerk at the store giving you awkward looks while ringing all those jars! Jessie was asking about a replacement too…I’m thinking you could probably use regular flour + peanut butter (almond butter in your case…I will not have your blood on my hands!), but you may have to cut down on the liquid a bit OR add a little thickener to it (cornstarch, xanthan gum, arrowroot). I’d love to hear how they come out if you give it a try! I also think I’m going to have to sit down with all my pumpkin pancake recipes and see what new stuff I can come up with! 🙂
Oh. my. gosh! Please come make these for me right this second?? These combine my two loves!! 😉
I know exactly what song you’re talking about (I don’t even need to click the link), and yes, I absolutely sang it along with you.
Wow – these pancakes look amazing! and 3 of my fav ingredients! These are gonna have to be made for breakfast tomorrow! Thank you!
I have only gotten protein powder online so far…happy Sunday!
These are in the pan cooking right now. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Literally started singing that peaaaanut… peanut butter AND JELLY! song right when I saw your title. Damn babysitting. Those kids songs stick in your head!
I’ve never cooked with peanut flour, much less in a pancake, but if the Pancake Queen tells me it’s amazing, then it must be, right?
RIGHT! There are two things in life I don’t joke about…unicorn sightings and pancakes! Trust me on this one! 😉
Crap, I need to get me some peanut flour, like immediately. I need to find a good Canadian alternative to iHerb – I’ve never tried ordering through them, but apparently the shipping to Canada is pretty intense.
Dude, if I can order it to australia at a great shipping price ($8 usually!) you have no excuses 😉 Andddd you can faceplant in it.
These are delicious! Stuffing my face with them as I type;) thank you for sharing!
No, thank YOU! I know I already mentioned it on Instgram, but it means so much to me when I see others trying my recipes…you literally made my day when I saw your post! 🙂
Oh how I miss peanut butter!!! WHAAA!!! 😉 These look wonderful girl!
those pancakes look AMAZING!!! YUMMMM
making me crave pumpkin right now 😉
Oh! I like the addition of the maple extract in thur. I like to play with those too obviously .
I didn’t have pancakes this pancake sunday. I may have to have this tomorrow morning, or tonight 😉
Oh you breakfast Queen at it again- not only do they look sexy and amazing, I don’t even think they would last 5 minutes on the plate- a pancake quickie.
Peanut flour is perhaps one of the most amazing flours out there- I literally order 2 of the large packs every iherb order and I order from iherb alot…oops.
These look amazing! I will be making them for breakfast tomorrow!!!! I totally agree that you should write a pancake cookbook 😉
Aww, thank you! And please, let me know what you think of them! 🙂
I made these pancakes for breakfast today, and they were delicious! I will definitely make them again! Thanks for the great recipe, and please keep them coming!
With feedback like that, how could I stop? 😉 Thank you SO much!
oh my gawd! I wrote you on fb – but please (PRETTYYY PLEASEEE) tell me I can use regular pb in this recipe instead of pb flour?
Hmmm, I’m not sure…I would think it would work ok though. You might try replacing one tablespoons of peanut flour with regular flour and the other 2 tablespoons with protein powder to keep the same consistency. Please let me know if you try it! I already got some feedback from a reader who replaced the egg with flax…she said it still tasted great, but the consistency was a little “off”.
This combo sounds incredible!! And I saw on Instagram where Laura and Meg already made them (I think those were the two?? 🙂 ). No wonder because these look so easy to make but so so worth it.
P-cubed! Haha, LOVE IT!
So happy to have found your blog through I Heart Vegetables! I’m all about peanut flour (I buy it online as well). And, omg these pancakes look absolutely amazing. Adding them to my must make list now. 🙂
Awww, thank you so much, Brittany! I’m glad to have found you too! Liz is great!
Haha! Laughing out loud at you singing that song. Of course I know it! Not only did I have to sing it all the time when I taught pre-school but my son LOVES it and sings it all the time now. These pancakes look amazing as always 🙂
I want to dive into a pile of those babies, then eat my way out!

So I totally don’t know the PB&J song, but I’m all about singing songs I don’t know the lyrics to, so let’s do this!: Peanut butteeeeeer…peanut butter and puuuuuunkinnnn! Peanut butter and punkin pancaaaakes! Man, I sing out of tune!
I about died when I saw this recipe. I LOVE pb and pumpkin and have never tried them together. PEANUT FLOUR?? What?? Where can I gemme some of that? This is the first I’ve heard of it and I want it!! Having a serious heart attack here. Caaaaaaalmn down.
Haha! You crack me up, Julia! Peanut flour will surely change your life! I never heard of it until Trader Joe’s announced that they were discontinuing it…then after one bag, I went back and bought five! Ha! I’m just glad I can get it from iHerb now because I seriously can’t imagine going without! You’ll love it…it’s so FULL of flavor and works great in gluten-free recipes! 🙂
Late to the party on this post but I agree while heartedly with all the comments of how delicious this looks. But the comments I agree with most are the ones about you creating a pancake cookbook! I so think you should, it would be a glorious thing and I know that I and many many others would buy it.
Now I am going to have the pb & j song in my head all day 🙂
Aww, Jan! Thank you so much! I have to say that is one of my dreams…I only worry about getting sick of them again with having to taste-test so many…it would probably take me years to write the thing! Lol
You my friend know exactly what I’m thinking… I made a similar batch a couple of weeks ago and it was heavenly! P.S. I’m gonna hold you to that proposal I shared on IG — we should make it happen 🙂
Totally! I’m thinking I should design a map of travel destinations based solely off the addresses of my favorite bloggers! Lol
I sing that PB&J song almost every single day, for no apparent reason. My husband hates it! …for many reasons, but in part because Australians don’t eat PB&J, and it has a negative “this is what Americans eat” connotation. I continue to sing it anyway. 🙂
Australians don’t eat PB&J?!?! Are they’re taste buds broken?! Omg, I can’t even fathom! Lol
These look so good! Yesterday I threw together a recipe with pumpkin puree, egg whites, oats, stevia, and cinnamon… cooked them up like pancakes and topped with bananas and greek yogurt! YUM!
That sounds incredible, Cassie! I swear I’ve been adding pumpkin to everything lately! I’m sure my palms will be orange by the end of the month! Ha!

Oh girl! I’m totally making these (yes, I’ve been oggling them and haven’t commented…yet)! I have been craving comforting pancakes, and these are doing the trick for me. 🙂

I would love to make these, but I’m wondering if PB2 is the same thing as peanut flour, or if I can replace peanut flour with the PB2?
It’s REALLY close to the same thing…the only difference is the added salt and sugar. I would think it would work just fine to use them interchangeably! 🙂
