There are two things I love in this world: the combination of Peanut Butter and Jelly, and Pancakes.
They both evoke joy in my heart and bring a smile to my face — (just like my mother 🙂 )
SO naturally, I’m going to create a recipe that brings the two together!
Allow me to introduce one of my new FAVORITE meals — Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes with Veggie Frittata Bites!
HOLY COW, you guys. I am all abuzz from this SUPER feast. Creamy Peanut Butter with Homemade Jelly — I mean, somebody pinch me!
I had it for dinner, but naturally, you can have it any time of day — breakfast, brunch, a midnight snack. It is ALWAYS Peanut Butter/Jelly time in my book!
It was so good. Lick the plate, bask in the deliciousness, fun to eat – good.
And the best part??? THEY’RE GLUTEN FREE!
Here’s What You Need: (Serves 3)
1 1/3 cup GF Flour Mix (I like Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp agave
3/4 cup warm water
2 egg beaten to stiff peaks
Peanut Butter Sauce:
1/4 cup peanut butter
4 drops agave
about 3 Tbsp water
Homemade Strawberry Sauce
8 strawberries, sliced
2 tsp organic sugar
Frittatas: (Serves 1)
2 egg whites
salt and pepper
3 button mushrooms, diced
2 green onions, sliced
2 asparagus stalks, sliced
big handful of spinach, chopped
Large, Nonstick skillet
Nonstick muffin tin
Electric hand mixer or whisk
Good Chef’s Knife
First, the frittatas: Preheat oven to 350. Combine the egg whites and veggies in a bowl and stir to coat. Spray a muffin tin with olive oil. Spoon the mixture into 3 cups. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until cooked through. Run a knife around the edge of help them out. YUM!
Next: the pancakes! Combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, and wet ingredients in another. Beat the egg whites with an electric hand mixer (or whisk) in another separate bowl until they form stiff peaks. . Mix the wet into the dry and stir, just to combine. Then, gently fold in the beaten egg whites. Ladle about 1/4 cup of the batter onto a hot, olive oil sprayed, non-stick frying pan or griddle. Flip after about 1 minute, when the edges begin to brown a bit and bubbles form on top. Keep them warm on a plate under tin foil.
For the peanut butter sauce: Combine ingredients in a pyrex measuring cup. Microwave for about 15-20 seconds. Stir. If it seems too thick, repeat, adding more water. It will be slightly thicker than “drizzly.”
For the strawberry sauce: macerate the strawberries by sprinkling the sugar over them. Mix to coat. Let them sit for about 30 minutes. then, with an immersion blender (aka stick blender), blend until you get a smooth and delicious strawberry sauce.
This meal was absolutely delightful! I mean, where to even start?! The pancakes were amazing – the frittatas were outstanding — I don’t know which to talk about first!
The veggie frittatas were awesome. Since they were only made with egg whites, they puffed up in the oven! The texture was just wonderful — they were so spongy and chewy, while the veggies were slightly crunchy. The mushrooms were chewy and deliciously earthy. And just perfect with the slight bite of the green onion!
They would be great to batch cook/meal prep for breakfasts on the go, too!!
And then the pancakes….
Magnificent, gluten free pancakes with an out of this world peanut butter and jelly flare!
Let’s first talk texture: Gluten free bakery is notoriously bad: chalky, dense, cakey, crumble, sandy. But these were outrageously fantastic! THey wer elight and fluffy!! Airy and chew! It was hard to beliee they were gluten free! The whipped egg whites gave these such a lightness. SO GOOD.
And then to top it off — the PB and J deliciousness! The combination of the rich and creamy peanut butter with the bright and sweet strawberry sauce was irrisistible. It brought back memories of childhood school lunches, with my daily PB & J sandwich! The salty-sweet with the light and fluffy pancake was perfection!
I also served it with pure maple syrup for a different option, but I really enjoyed the strawberry puree as my topping — it was a natural source of sugar. Plus — it was a shot of fruit and extra protein! It was just outrageous. Completely yummy.
No matter what time it is, PB & J is ALWAYS a good idea!

Wow, I’ll try this for sure Caralyn! Don’t knock it until ya try it right? I love peanut butter and jelly but never liked them together as a kid or today but these look really delicious! I love the photo of you and your mum, so sweet! 🥰
Thanks John! I hope you love them as much as I did! You’re right — sometimes you’ve just gotta give something a try! It might just surprise you! I had a recent experience like that with OYSTERS this summer! I was always completely grossed out by just the thought of them, and I tried a super fresh one this summer — I’m sold!! haha thanks for stopping by! hope you have a great night! hugs xox
OM Gosh, nooo way will I eat anything seafood because of being grossed out! Thanks, you too. ☺️
Haha to each his own!! 🙂
I made peanut butter and jelly rice once. I don’t recommend it. haha 🙂
hahhaha rice!? Oh wow — that’s a creative spin on a classic!! I’ll take your word for it! thanks for stopping by! enjoy your evening! hugs xo
Blueberry pancakes with pure maple syrup and melted butter are my all-time favorite but never had these and would probably go ape for seconds and thirds! Holy Cow; how about Holy Now, I want some! Of course with my maple syrup! Not an easy dilemma you got me into. I only have peanuts here that I give to the squirrels, so do I wait till I shop and buy peanut butter or make some, I think I have everything else ready to go. It would be nice if someone was handy to just take care of all the work and let me do all the eating! We’ll see where this goes, I’ll be dreaming of pancakes tonight!
Oooh Lawrence, that sounds so delicious! nothing like a classic blueberry flapjack! Yeah, peanut butter is a definite must, although there’s also something delicious about homemade peanut butter! throw a little cinnamon in there, a little honey — YUM!! Thanks for stopping by! have an awesome night! hugs xo
Uh-Huh!!! You know this is torture though right! Almost time for me and the chickens, (actually the dove), to get to sleep and I don’t have all of the ingredients on hand for either dish but there is always tomorrow so tonight I just get to dream right? Hold on here, I could make that peanut butter you suggest, and then again I was already making some homemade hot chocolate and have the gourmet marshmallows to toss in and that can be a not even 10 minutes from now deal! Then in the morning I can go all out after having sweet dreams I can jump into gear and get it all to happen first thing.
Ya know what, thank you for the motivation! I’m going to enjoy tonight and tomorrow, with my taste BUDS! I got many BUDS! Goodnight!
oh my gosh hot chocolate is such a treat! enjoy!!
Just caught up here Caralyn! It was delicious and hit the spot so well that I slept contently all night! Now to get working on those pancakes because I woke up thinking about them all because of you; so you get all the credit and I always give credit where it is due! Thank you very much! Have the fresh blueberries grown in the organic indoor patch right here in the USA, along with all other ingredients; so good to go here! I do plan to try your recipe by the weekend which will be a first, never had those, so it should be delightful! I’ll be sure to let you know! Thanks again, you’re doing a fine job!
Not hard to do with such great recipes; you think! I do have a sweet tooth just been part of me since a boy and won’t go away! So far so good, it hasn’t cost me in some nasty way, I think eating well balances me out so not to worry, I guess so far so good! All’s well that ends well.
Hi again Caralyn, seems I missed a couple here! I hope to try your amazing recipe tomorrow I had so many previously prepared meals in the fridge that I’m making sure I use them up while freshly cooked. I’m going to use a high quality organic peanut butter for the pancakes but I do want to make some soon too, and add those ingredients, you seem to have a winner there as per usu! Yesterday the blueberry version was great after having the hot chocolate with marshmallows the evening before I’m on a really good roll. Just polished off the rest of a homemade pizza with four cheeses, olives and multi-colored sautéed peppers! Now the pot of homemade chicken soup has to disappear or I’ll need to freeze it and I’d rather not do that; make it fresh every-time is my thing!
Ciao! Hugs xo
Hey Caralyn, good to hear back but you’re some kind of cook from what I’ve seen offered up as recipes on here so you must be pretty happy every mealtime! Yes “YUM” for sure! 🙂 See ya!
You’re welcome Dear Lady you are such a great cook and full of ideas!!! Good I’m not around you because if I was that blessed and would be eating all of these great dishes I think I would pack on the pounds like I never could it seems always being a medium weight; I would have to morph into something different right? I mean, because I would easily overdo it with so much yummy food in front of me constantly!
Caralyn, holy Toledo! I tried the Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes and they were incredible! I do experiment and concoct different variations on standard breakfast menu items but I’m surprised I never thought of this combo! I definitely will alternate between this recipe and my classic blueberry ones, but this style is so delectable! I didn’t make the Peanut Butter this time but opted to buy a gourmet all organic jar of MaraNatha USDA Organic and Non GMO Peanut Butter out of Lake Success NY which is awesome stuff; I admit I did pig-out! Hey now and again not a biggy! A big hug out to you for this great healthy breakfast treat/meal! XO
You did!? Oh my gosh YAY!! I’m so glad you enjoyed them! I LOVE maranatha nut butters! I’m a personal fan of their toasted almond butter! YUM! Way to go on your cooking adventure! Big hugs to you!! Hugs and love xox
Hey YAY is right! Thanks again for the recipe and idea! I had not tried Maranatha actually before but your recipe got me going and I shopped for a top premade peanut butter; now I’m hooked which is easy with this stuff! I just had some on a gourmet chocolate bar broken up and then a couple of heaping tablespoons on Haagan Dazs Vanilla Swiss Almond Ice Cream!!! WOW! Thanks again for getting me on a new kick, such a yummy change! And I saw the Almond one but said hummm, that is an idea to keep in the back of my mind for an upcoming concoction!
I’ll be sure to keep you posted and I know you will keep sending out all of these great eatery ideas! “Caralyn’s Good Eats”
Caralyn, I actually somehow didn’t know these messages came to me until today, until this evening and I have no idea how I missed them?! I wish I had seen them and wrote back immediately so I’ll be paying closer attention to my notices to see if there is a glitch or I’m not following good practices here! Again, sorry for the time lapse and it was totally unintended on my part!!! Thanks for your understanding! I think maybe I’m doing some of that scrambling that I asked my sister not to do, ummm pot calling the kettle black or I really do have a glitch somewhere in my set-up here.
😍🌟 Thank you again Dear Sister in Christ Jesus!
They sound awesome! You know, I don’t think I’ve ever had anything but regular pancakes. I’ve tried different syrups, but just plain pancakes. Guess I need to add that to my bucket list and swing by IHOP. 😜 Thanks, C! 🤗💛
Thanks so muc Kenneth!! really? Oh gosh, well i think it’s time to branch out of the original cakes! 🙂 heheh absolutely! oh my gosh IHoP has some amaaaaazing seasonal varieties right now. YUM when I could eat gluten, this girl went to town on some gingerbread flapjacks! hahaha glad you stopped by my friend! hugs xo

Ohhhh they look Soooooooooo gooooddd!!! 😀 ….I love pancakes! I make them from scratch all the time. I tried whole wheat one’s with oats and it tasted really good. I like adding my own touch to it. I love PB & J!!! <3 you're not alone sis! Blessings!
Thank you so much Tammy!!!! Oooh from scratch pancakes – that’s impressive!! Hope you’re having a great night! Hugs and love xox

With my wife having gone gluten free it is sometimes hard to find foods that are fun and edible (taste good). Thanks for posting new and fun food ideas!
Hi William!! I definitely feel ya – sometimes it just takes getting a little creative! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and love xox
I don’t need a gluten free diet, but I do need those pancakes of yours now that you tempt me with those photos. How could you tempt a vulnerable person like this? 🙂
Haha thanks Ian! Sorry for the temptation! Hahaha have a great night! Hugs and love xox
I’m in. I love peanut butter and syrup on waffles. This sounds even better and since I eat peanut butter on toast, every day, it will be a nice substitute from the ordinary.
