Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes

Published by teacherayala in the blog teacherayala's blog. Views: 99

Now that I have you all craving Blueberry Muffin Pudding and all kinds of other treats, I have to share something that is bound to kill the hunger pangs quickly for a very small amount of money. It's my "last resort" food when there's nothing in the cupboard and I'm starving. It also has a little bit of sweet and salty combined so that it satisfies most food cravings.

Again, though, can't say it's very healthy, although there are some modifications you can make.

I start out with Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Pancake Complete Mix. Just add water. Although some might prefer the kind made with eggs and milk, I find that I rarely have eggs and milk on hand when I'm craving pancakes, and it's nice to have something that only requires a little bit of water, which is readily available.

Make the pancakes, then spread peanut butter. Top with a glob of jelly, whatever flavor of your preference. Personally, I go with Strawberry or Raspberry. To feel a bit better about calories and such, you can substitute natural peanut butter instead of (my staple) Jif brand. You can also choose a Sugar Free Smuckers brand option instead of a sugar-filled variety.
