Nothing Says Sorry Like Chocolate Peanut Butter Chunk Pancakes

I was a bit of a cranky crabapple today. The kiddles had to endure a few of my flash tantrums. I ended up feeling like the wicked wench of wood lane, so as a way of saying sorry as only sweets can, I made them chocolate peanut butter chunk pancakes for dinner. I adapted the recipe from the peanut butter lovers website. Peanut Butter definitely deserves a devotional website, seeing that the quickest and easiest way to bliss is a simple spoonful away. That's the best way to enjoy the stuff- straight from the jar. The peanut butter in these pancakes is pretty subtle, it's the chocolate that hits you first, but the PB provides a nice creamy ending. The Kiddles loved them, and served up with some sliced bananas, I was somewhat redeemed.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chunk Pancakes
Mix in bowl 3/4 c. white flour and 3/4 c. wheat flour (you can use all white if you prefer, I just wanted to make these pancakes remotely healthy), 1 tbsp. powdered sugar and 2tsp. baking powder. In separate bowl mix 1 c. milk, 1 egg , 1/3 c. peanut butter. Add PB mixture to the flour mixture and mix until incorporated but still lumpy, Add chocolate chips/chunks. In a hot skillet, melt 1 tbsp. butter, spoon batter into pan. When edges begin to brown and bubble flip over. Repeat. Serve plain, with syrup, or if you want to go for broke- with chocolate syrup.
