What’s the Project? Kick breakfast up a notch with these Nutella and peanut butter pancakes. Easy to make like regular pancakes but stuffed with so much goodness, you’re going to go wild for these.
Being at home with the kids all day every day during a worldwide pandemic is…interesting. Right?!
I mean, there are parts I’ve loved. Genuinely loved. The slower pace of life, more time as a family, lower expectations.
And of course, there are the hard parts. Fear, concern for those who are sick, being with my kids all day every day for 22 weeks (but who’s counting) so far…
But honestly, I found so man fun ways to make the experience a little brighter for my family, and this was something that came of it that we’ve all loved.
One morning early on I decided to get creative with breakfast. This was totally on a whim. I pulled out the Nutella and put it inside pancakes and then that developed into adding peanut butter as well.
And since that time we’ve made these Nutella Peanut Butter Pancakes at least 20 times at our house. My kids literally go nuts over them. (ha and they have peanuts and hazelnuts in them. See what I did there?)
These peanut butter and Nutella stuffed pancakes are my boys’ new favorite breakfast. And I don’t mind making them because are so happy when I do.
Want to make them for your little people? It’s easy!
Nutella and Peanut Butter Pancakes
- 2 C Krusteaz buttermilk pancake mix (I use Krusteaz because it's what we love but you can use any pancake batter you prefer-just follow the recipe for that to make the batter)
- 1 1/2 C cold water
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- cooking spray
- 1/2 C Nutella
- 1/2 C creamy peanut butter
- Prepare your pancake batter by mixing the pancake mix, water, egg, and oil. Mix until it's smooth. You want it to be slightly thicker than normal, so add a little bit more pancake mix if needed.
- Heat a griddle to about 300 degrees. Spray with cooking spray.
- Put your peanut butter and Nutella in a small bowl and warm in microwave for about 45 seconds to melt.
- Pour about 1/4 C of batter on the griddle to form a pancake.
- Drizzle Nutella and peanut butter in the pancake.
- Quickly cover the top of the Nutella and peanut butter with more batter.
- Allow it to cook until small bubbles form in the batter and it appears ready to flip.
- Flip and cook the other side until done (this takes a little bit longer than your average pancake because it's so thick). Probably about 2 minutes.
- Top with syrup if desired (my boys eat them plain).
Breakfast is a favorite around these parts and these pancakes top our list. I hope you love them too.
