Whole wheat pancakes stuffed with a dollop of peanut butter and jelly are the perfect weekend breakfast treat and one the whole family will love!
I made us pancakes just in time for the weekend! These aren’t just any old pancakes. Nope, these are 100% whole wheat and stuffed with peanut butter and jelly. They are sure to bring out the inner five year old in you too!
Speaking of bringing out your inner five year old, I’m going to whine about the cold for a minute. Yesterday we had a cold front come through the Denver area and it’s continuing to stick around today. It’s been nothing but clouds, rain and cold. While it’s still cold here today at least the sun is out. I’m fine with the cold for the most part, especially if the sun’s out, but it sure does make my morning runs hard. Forcing myself out of bed when it’s cold and dark is a pretty tough thing to do. If the wind isn’t blowing it’s not as bad, but throw in any wind and it’s miserable. Generally I can stay fairly warm, but the part of me that always gets bitter cold are my fingers. No matter what gloves I buy (I have 3 pairs, soon to be 4) my fingers always get painfully numb, to the point where I can hardly bend them. I honestly don’t know how to fix the problem, but I’m desperate! If you have any tips or gloves you can recommend, please let me know, I will be so grateful!
You know what is nice on a cold day? Treating yourself to a stack of pancakes! There’s nothing like filling your belly with warm pancakes topped with maple syrup, breakfast comfort food at it’s finest. Occasionally I like to really treat myself so I stuff my pancakes with a dollop of peanut butter and jelly. For this recipe I used strawberry jelly/jam because that’s what I had, but pick your favorite flavor, they’ll all be delicious!
Since these pancakes are both whole wheat and stuffed with peanut butter they are very filling. While the stack in the picture is about 6 pancakes high, I could only eat 2 before I was full. The pancakes can be made ahead of time, then frozen for those days when you have a carb craving and want one for a quick breakfast or snack. Kids will love them, adults will love them, heck even the dog will love them…cats not so much. So go ahead, bring out your inner five year old and treat yourself to these peanut butter and jelly stuffed pancakes!
