Crunchy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes

When I sit down to write a blog post, sometimes I know exactly what to write and the words flow out naturally.

Other times, I really struggle with it. It becomes a war of incomplete sentences, misspelled words and run-on ideas that just turns into so much garble that I have to close my browser, step away from the keyboard and leave it alone for a few hours….or a few days.

Recently, I’ve come to also realize that I’m one of those people who, when stuck in a boring situation like waiting for a bus, starting to form blog posts in my head.

“So when I talk about the pancakes and how the napkin I used as a colour-pop is yellow, I should mention that I was inspired by the fact that up until the day I made them, I was tired, grouchy, and had not seen the sun in exactly six days…….”

Yeah, I’m not so smooth in my head either.

Rather than give you a unnecessary cold open (sorry, don’t mind the production talk), I will instead gush on and on about how fantastic these chewy, crunchy pancakes made my morning. After a week of early alarm clocks, rain clouds and boring breakfast cereal, I arrived at last Saturday, where I was able to sleep in, witness the sun emerge from the stormy rain clouds and enjoy the nutty goodness of these pancakes.

Adding a little spoonful of homemade blueberry jam didn’t hurt either. The combination of peanut butter and jam should always be mandatory for breakfast.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes


  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 cup of almond milk or water
  • 4 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil


  1. Preheat your pan to medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, rolled oats, white sugar, baking powder and salt. Add almond milk/water, crunchy peanut butter and vegetable oil and mix until smooth.
  3. If the batter is a little thick, add a little bit of almond milk or water to thin out the batter and ensure a quicker cooking time.
  4. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter onto the heated pan and flip when the batter bubbles in the middle and the edges look tough.
  5. Remove from heat and garnish with your choice of toppings.
