PB & Honey HoneyComb Pancakes

14 Jul

Who said kids are the only ones allowed to play with their food?

I’m not sure about you, but one of the best combinations I can think of growing up that I am still not sick of, is peanut butter and honey toast. If you haven’t tried it, please do. When thinking of what pancake flavor I wanted to make next, I looked over to my little honeycomb honey jar I keep out on the counter, and right then I knew. I needed to recreate this peanut butter and honey flavor in a pancake!

Since incorporating some sweetener back into my life after my sugar detox, I have gone to raw honey. It is delicious, and so healthy for you. Unlike processed honey, it contains many vital nutrients and antioxidants that aren’t killed from the heat that the typical honey undergoes. So, that is what went into these babies!

But that’s when things got creative. See, I didn’t just want to make regular pancakes. After see that cute little honeycomb jar of mine, I ran with the idea. I was going to shape my pancakes like a beehive. And what better way to finish off this creation then to add a couple of little bees as well to the dish?

The result was the cutest stack of pancake that I ever had seen! Unfortunately, they didn’t stick around too long to admire as my mom and I devoured them very quickly.

And guess what? These are competition WINNERS. Just today I found out that the creative pancake competition I entered these cute little pancakes in, WON!!

The lovely taste of peanut butter and honey, the cute creativity that is so fun and pleasing to the eye, and the healthy aspect of it all..why not make them?!

Made with peanut flour and raw unprocessed bran, natural protein powder, and  coconut flour, these pancakes are filled with protein and fiber! For one serving (makes two here), there is 11 grams of fiber and 30 grams of protein!

I usually do not provide nutritional information as I do not count, but this recipe was featured on a site that does count, so the information will be below the picture!
