- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- Butter or oil for cooking
1. Prepare the Batter
In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate microwave-safe bowl, heat the milk and peanut butter in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds, or until the peanut butter softens. Stir well to combine.
Add the milk and peanut butter mixture to the dry ingredients, along with the vanilla extract and the egg. Mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps in the batter are okay.
2. Heat the Pan
Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. You can add a small amount of butter or oil to prevent sticking if needed.
3. Cook the Pancakes
Pour 1/4 cup of the pancake batter onto the hot skillet for each pancake.
Cook until bubbles form on the surface, about 2-3 minutes.
Flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
4. Assemble the PB & J Pancakes
Once the pancakes are cooked, stack them on a plate.
In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the fruit jelly or jam for about 15-20 seconds until it becomes slightly runny.
Drizzle the warm jelly over the pancakes, allowing it to flow down the sides.
5. Serve and Enjoy
Serve your PB & J Pancakes For One immediately while they are still warm.
You can also sprinkle some crushed peanuts or sliced fresh fruits on top for added texture and flavor, if desired.

There’s nothing like a tall stack of fluffy pancakes – featuring the iconic childhood favorite flavor combination of PB & J no less – to make you feel like a kid again.
The nutritional profile of these hearty pancakes, however, will appeal to your adult sensibilities.
Peanut flour and peanut butter contribute a whopping 32 grams of protein, and the addition of whole wheat pastry flour ensures that you’re getting a good dose of fiber (8.9 grams to be precise).
I can guarantee that the typical stack of white flour and sugar-laden pancakes swimming in syrup at your local diner doesn’t even come close to these impressive stats.
John usually chooses the egg route for weekend breakfasts, thus the recipe written for one serving. Easily doubled – or even quadrupled – this recipe is a good one to have on hand for when a pancake craving strikes.
This stack is everything pancakes should be: light and fluffy (yes, even with whole wheat pastry flour!), flavorful (in this case, packed with peanut flavor and laced with sweet blueberry preserves), satisfying, and filling.
I’m actually kicking myself for not doubling the recipe, as leftover pancakes reheated in the toaster oven make for a quick and delicious weekday breakfast.
