These Whole Wheat Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancakes are just what you need to get your mornings started right!

There’s nothing more that my boys love than a warm plate of pancakes for breakfast, especially on the weekends.  What a treat!

With three boys, it’s always been a struggle trying to get them to eat all of the right foods on a regular basis.  We are a work in progress that’s for sure.  I’m so excited to partner with Similac Go and Grow Mix ins to bring you a new recipe for your family!  Added nutrition with each mix in packet.  Lots more information HERE.

So excited about this new product.  Abbott created Go & Grow by Similac Food Mix-Ins to help toddlers maintain balanced nutrition while they are learning to eat new foods.  I can appreciate that so much, especially while Pax is expanding his palate in his toddler years.  It’s not always easy to get him to eat good foods all day, so I am grateful for the added nutrition in these mix-in packets!

Each single-serve powder packet has OptiGro, a unique blend of DHA, lutein and vitamin E that supports brain, eye and overall growth and development.  Mix-Ins also offers protein, fiber and essential vitamins and minerals.  Mix-Ins are available at all major retailers.  Visit Similac Website HERE for free samples (while supplies last).

I’d like to think these pancakes will help avoid morning meltdowns.  Heaven knows I’ve seen those more than a time or two in my house.  It helps to have a plan first thing in the morning, especially knowing what is for breakfast.  My 3 year old wakes up starving, so I know that if I have a nutritious breakfast waiting for him, my morning will go much smoother 🙂  Mothers always can use smooth mornings!

I added my Mix-Ins to my homemade buttermilk pancakes with a hint peanut butter and jelly.  My boys loved these!  Can’t wait to share them with you.

Cook your pancakes in a large skillet or griddle.  If serving for guests, I enjoy stacking my pancakes on a cake plate.

    I checked the ingredients in the Similac and there’s way too many un-pronouncable ingredients and too few Vitamins for me to feel comfortable with. Recipe loos good though.

    This look so yummy! Can I follow this recipe exactly without the 2 packets Similac Go & Grow Mix-Ins; or will the measurements of the other ingredients?

      Johanna says:

      Sorry, just noticed my incomplete thought, a year and some change later lol! If I omit the Similac, will it affect the measurements of the other ingredients?

    Jake S. says:

    These look too good to be true. Going to have to give them a try in the new year because I always fail when trying to incorporate peanut butter into pancakes. Pro tip: use an indoor grill griddle for these for super easy cleanup.
