Last week RC (my son) had his friend over. It was about lunch time and I offered a menu of items to choose from. (LOL) One of the choices was peanut butter & jelly. Well, that must of sent off a spark in RC's friends mind..because he began telling us about these peanut butter & jelly pancakes that he saw on tv. As I watched RC listening to his friend's description of how good these pancakes tasted...I could almost smell the oil from the gears in his mind rotating...
What do you know..that night before bed he asked if we could get up early (it was a work day for me) and try to make the pancakes ourselves.
...And of course I could never deny a mini-cook in the kitchen the excitement of coming up with his version of a recipe.
Here is what we came up with (very simple!)
2 cups of bisquick (you can use the low fat or regular)
1 cup of milk (we use organic skim milk)
2/3 cup of peanut butter (we use organic)
jelly (we use low sugar smuckers concord grape)
Warm up your skillet or pan on low to medium heat. Make sure you spray it with some cooking spray. We use Pam olive oil spray.
First, in medium-large bowl, mix the bisquick, eggs and milk together. When the batter is formed & you have most of those little lumps out, add the peanut butter. We chose to use a fork (instead of a whisk) to mix the peanut butter.
When your batter is mixed well and the pan is ready...
Use a large spoon and dollop your batter onto the pan. When you begin to see little bubbles forming & they reach the edge of the pancakes...
it's time to flip.
Once you have made all of your pancakes... put your jelly on top!
