Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Sheet Pan Pancakes

Sheet pan pancakes are my new favorite thing.

My three year old is completely obsessed with pancakes and requests them nearly every other day. We’ve been obliging him – but the thing that drives me mad is the timing of them.

He is, of course, starving so he’ll get the first pancakes out of the pan. By the time I’m done cooking up the batter, he’s polished off his plate and is itching to go play.  The genius of sheet pan pancakes is that everyone’s pancakes are done at the same time so we can all actually sit down and eat together. It’s kind of awesome.

And since it’s National Peanut Butter Day, I thought I’d share this peanut butter-y version (with compliments to PB’s bff, chocolate).  Need some more peanut butter inspiration to help you celebrate today? I’m linking up with some other bloggers to bring you lots of fun options!

(adapted from Recipe Girl)
Serves 10-12

2 cups flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a half-sheet baking sheet with baking parchment, using enough that it hangs over the edges slightly.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a larger bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla until it is well combined and the peanut butter is all incorporated. Stir in dry ingredients until just moistened.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it out to fill the pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

Bake 12-15 minutes, until puffy and cooked through.

Remove from the pan using the sides of the parchment to lift. Cut into squares and serve with syrup, if desired.

Apple Cinnamon Dutch Baby

Hey guys, I’m pregnant! I realized after the last post I never actually said it here – but it sure does explain the lack of posts recently, right?

One thing I’ve been loving this pregnancy is breakfast. Anything breakfast-y. Pancakes for dinner? Bagel sandwiches? Brunch whenever I can? Yes, yes and yes.

I found some really nice apples in the store a few weeks ago and whipped this up one weekend morning. It was delicious. I can’t wait to make this again in the fall with some fresh-from-the-farm apples!

Serves 4

4 Tbsp. butter
3 medium size Gala apples, thinly sliced
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 400F degrees. Place the butter in an oven-proof skillet and put in the oven until melted.

Meanwhile, whisk together the flour, baking powder, 1 Tbsp. sugar, salt, milk and eggs in a medium bowl. In another bowl, mix together the 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon.

Once the butter is melted, arrange the apples in the pan. Pour the batter over the apples. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the batter.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and nicely puffed up.
