Um you guys . . . I have totally been holding out on you.
Like really, really holding out on you.
Which was like a lifetime ago. Sorry
But you guys these pancakes will totally make up for it.
After all they aren’t just any pancakes, they are my all time favourite pancakes (←well my favourite since march anyway and that my friend has gotta be some kinda record!)
Healthy Wholewheat Peanut Butter Pancakes.
Light and fluffy pancakes that are just subtly sweet with the perfect peanut butter punch!
I can’t even stand it.
These pancakes are perfect for a leisurely breakfast on the weekend or do what I do and cook up a big ol’ batch and store them in your freezer, then when you can fight the craving no longer just grab one out and pop them on the toaster and boomshakalocka, you’re done.
I love the texture of the wholewheat pastry flour and that, combined with the yogurt is what makes these pancakes the most incredible texture. Oh and the yogurt adds an extra sneaky serving of protein which of course I just love. Please, please, please, promise me that you will make these pancakes.
So, so good.
If you’re feeling fancy serve with some freshly sliced banana, a sprinkling of chocolate chips and some maple syrup. But if your on the go or in a pinch just serve with some strawberry jam (or jelly for my sweet American friends).
I warn you each and every time I make these pancakes . . . after the very first bite I can’t help but close my eyes, sigh incredibly deeply and declare (out loud for all to hear how very much in love with these pancakes I am (←yes really)
Now go make these pancakes already, after all breakfast is the most important meal of the day
