Pancakes for the Weekend!

You can never have too many pancakes can you!? 😀 ???

We love pancakes in this house and although we have now stopped making them daily (yes we really did for a long time)! they are still made regularly!

We usually have pancakes for breakfast or brunch, but as we love them so much, we might make them for afternoon tea or dessert after dinner!

Plus, even though in the UK we have had our Mothers Day this year, it is International Mothers Day this Sunday (12th May) so this is the perfect recipe for breakfast in bed! (Can I have Mothers Day again?)

Have a wonderful Mothers Day if you are celebrating!

Okay, there are already several recipes for pancakes on here, but one size never fits all – sometimes you want thin and crispy, sometimes fluffy and squishy, sometimes flavoured, sometimes plain… the possibilities are out there! What’s your favourite?

So, the other morning one of my friends sent me a photo of her pancakes before 8am! Well, that was enough for me to make pancakes and I did post them on Instagram (which if you follow me there you may have seen… if not, why not?!) Anyway, for those of you who don’t, I thought I’d share them here with you too!

Nom nom nom… who wants some?!

Now, you may or may not know that I’ve always been an almond butter rather than a peanut butter type of person – but that was until I discovered a delicious brand of totally natural ‘Smunchy’ (i.e. smooth & crunchy) peanut butter. Now… well, now the almond butter is lonely and vying for my attention! Sorry almonds! Peanuts ? all the way!

Peanut Pancakes

Fluffy pancakes with a hint of peanut flavour. Vegan and free from refined sugar.

Created by:: Laurena @LifeDietHealth
  • 100 g plain flour (gluten free if required)
  • 170 ml milk (we used unsweetened carton coconut)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (gluten free if required)
  • 3 teaspoons gram flour
  • 3 teaspoons peanut butter powder
  1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth.

  2. Pour a ladleful into a hot non-stick pan and gently swirl the pan to level the mixture.

  3. When bubbles start to appear, gently flip the pancake over and cook on the other side (the second side requires less cooking). When you flip it, you should see it start to puff up.

  4. Remove the pancake and keep warm (put in a low oven) whilst you use the rest of the batter. to make more pancakes.

  5. Serve as soon as you can with your favourite toppings! Enjoy!


I’m taking these pancakes over to Fiesta Friday this week where I am co-hosting with the lovely Jhuls @ The Not So Creative Cook. You really should pop over and see us check out all the lovely recipes and ideas!

    I haven’t heard of peanut butter powder, Laurena. These pancakes are so good and yes, we can’t have too many pancakes.? Thanks for co-hosting with me. I hope you have a relaxing weekend!? Happy Mother’s Day!?✨

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 11th May 2019 at 13:56

      Thanks Jhuls. PB powder was a new one on me too! You could use a tablespoon of peanut butter instead of the powder and just reduce the milk by 1-2Tbsp (depending on PB consistency). I wish for a relaxing weekend but it is far far from there! Not stopped yet (2pm here) and still loads to do before I can catch up with co-hosting! Don’t worry, I’ll be there! 😀 Just need to convince the boys about a second Mothers Day! 😛

    Peanut pancakes? Yes, please! We also had a pancake party for Mother’s Day. It was pouring and terribly cold so I took a rain check on the beach picnic. I made buttermilk pancakes and the kids helped prepare toppings. It was fun, actually ? Thanks for cohosting! ??

    • Laurena@LifeDietHealth 16th May 2019 at 20:03

      Thanks Angie. Pancake Party Yum Yum! Sounds fun… did it include chocolate?! I hope you had a great Mothers Day even without the beach! It’s warmed up a bit this week (14c / 57f) although today we had 30kmh winds which made it feel chillier! Anytime! 😛 xxx

      • ANGIE | FIESTA FRIDAY 17th May 2019 at 04:20

        Of course it included chocolate. And strawberries, blueberries, bananas, cinnamon sugar, all the toppings we could think of. Except for peanuts! Duh! Next time!
