  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate peanut butter cups chopped into small pieces
  • Chocolate syrup for serving
  • Whipped cream for serving


  • Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the buttermilk, egg, and peanut butter.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined, but still slightly lumpy.
  • Spray your cooking surface with non-stick cooking spray and place ¼ cup of the pancake batter in the pan.
  • The batter is very thick and will need spread a bit with the back of a spoon, spatula, or your ¼ cup measure.
