Peanut Butter and Jelly Stuffed Pancakes are two favorite breakfast foods in one! They are fluffy with a center of creamy peanut butter and jelly. It can't get any better!
Peanut butter and jelly? Good! Pancakes? Good! Peanut butter and jelly stuffed pancakes? YES PLEASE!
What is your favorite meal of the day? Mine is breakfast, whether it's Persian breakfast, like Nargesi, Turkish breakfast, American breakfast or healthy breakfast like Avocado boats or Cheesy Shakshuka. As long as it's breakfast, it's my favorite thing. I remember there was this book I used to read and there were these people having a conversation about having breakfast for dinner at a cafe that served breakfast all day long. I always thought those people are just so lucky!
Have you ever had breakfast for dinner? We do it once in a while and we enjoy it so much. It varies from bread and white cheese to pancakes depending on what we are in the mood for. Yes, we really care about our mood and craving because, well, we love food.
Making these fluffy pancakes was super easy as I used Krusteaz simple pancake mix, which you only need to add water to. To make it more interesting and combining two breakfast favorites in one, I decided to make a good old peanut butter and jelly version. But it's not a basic peanut butter and jelly spread on a pancake. Peanut butter and jelly are actually stuffed into these pancakes!
The key to perfect peanut butter and jelly stuffed pancakes is the frozen peanut butter circles that slowly melt while the pancakes are cooking. They stay right in the middle of the pancake and the jelly gives the pancake a sweet perfect touch. You can either top it with some more jelly or maple syrup, or both, because it's never too late for some more sweetness!
Whether we have these peanut butter and jelly stuffed pancakes for breakfast or dinner, we enjoy every bite of them and I hope so do you!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Stuffed Pancakes
- 2 cups Krusteaz Pancake Mix
- 1 ⅓ cup cold water
- 8 tablespoon peanut butter
- 8 teaspoon raspberry jelly
- Spread the peanut butter into 8 small circles on a parchment paper and chill it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes until firm.
- Mix Krusteaz Pancake Mix with cold water using a wire whisk, there will be lumps, don not over mix. Let it sit for 2 minutes.
- Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and pour 2 tablespoons of the batter in the pan, pour 1 teaspoon of jelly and place a peanut butter circle on the jelly and top with more pancake batter to cover the peanut butter. Cook for about 1 minute on one side (until golden brown) then flip and cook the other side.
- Server with maple syrup if desired.
