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
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!
