Peanut Butter Lovers Breakfast

by Peachy Palate on November 1, 2012

In case you haven’t noticed I’m a HUGE nut butter fan!

More often than not I go with almond or cashew nut butter or of course a good dollop of SunButter always goes down a treat. That said…the occasional class peanut butter and jelly combo never fails to win me over, especially at breakfast time!

Now that I’ve stepped right back on the breakfast bake gravy train I’m pretty much dreaming of a new combination every night of the week!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Parfait and the Pancakes were two of my best breakfasts over the past few of months. Strawberries were the fruit of choice on both occasions but strawberries have begun to taste like plastic again…they’re just no good when not in season. Raspberries on the other hand are still beautiful so I’m packing them in before they disappear.

I went down the protein route again, supercharged this time around by using some of my high protein peanut flour from iHerb.com; love this stuff! It’s not sweet like PB2 but is perfect for making peanut sauce or pancakes!

Sunwarrior, peanut flour and buckwheat flour, mix up with Alpro almond milk and a flax egg along with some diced banana and a dollop of quick raspberry chia jam in the middle! The result was positively awesome! Slightly crisp top, soft and doughy in the middle, rippled with soft warm banana with a delicious raspberry centre.

It was all kinds of wonderful! Topped off with raspberries, bee pollen and a good big dollop of Smooth Operator peanut butter (so thick and creamy, love it!) along with another wee spoonful of raspberry jam for good measure. I’ve just realised I’ve been referring to the jelly as jam, how very European of me! Smile

I remember when breakfast bakes, instant or oven, seemed like more hassle than they worth owing to the fact that I didn’t have any ground flax seed and having to grind it up fresh is just a step too many; and having to clean the coffee grinder is one of my most hated tasks! Now I can whip up the bake in ten minutes flat and sit down to it piping hot and gorgeous.

I had a little catastrophe a couple of weeks back when I broke my favourite ramekin amid preparation.  I only ever buy one of each dish that I’m going to use for the blog and I didn’t have anything that would fit the bill. Thankfully I picked up a new one that afternoon and I’m back in instant baking action!

Between the protein flour and Sunwarrior alone this bake has over 20grams of protein! Add in the peanut butter, flax seed and you’ve got over 30g! Needless to say it kept me going  right up until lunch time (and I’ll have the recipe for those beautiful baked tomato and red pepper butter beans up this evening!)

What’s your favourite peanut flour recipe? I have French toast plans after the success of Monday’s first ever vegan cinnamon French toast!

You had me sold at “Peanut Butter Lovers Breakfast.” I’ll take any excuse to incorporate more peanut butter into my diet!

Brilliant! I’m the same; I’m back on the peanut butter loving and I’ve put the almond butter to one side…for the time being!

Nice to see you mentioned on Peanut Butter & Co FB page. Question…does that sun warrior protein powder contain whey? If so, any suggestions for a substitute?

Nope! It’s vegan brown rice powder! 99.9% of my recipes on the recipage are vegan (you might find the odd one that isn’t that was published prior to me going vegan).

Wow, I am completely unfamiliar with vegan cooking!! Stumbled here from PB&Co’s Twitter page. No offense, but can you swap out regular flour for the flours used in your vegan recipe? I’m not opposed to using them, but I’m not sure if I would be able to find some of the ingredients easily where I live.

You could but without the peanut flour it wouldn’t be very peanutty! :) You can get it from iHerb.com ! You could sub the buckwheat with plain whole wheat; I don’t eat wheat and avoid gluten as much as possible, hence the buckwheat but it’s a great flour if you can get your hands on it – also available from iHerb!

Oh my heavens, this looks MARVELOUS m’dear! And I love how you made it with a little “surprise” in the middle! :) Mmm, mmm, mmm! I made a similar micro-bake cake last month with just peanut flour that I’m still obsessed with: http://www.kissmybroccoliblog.com/2012/09/25/what-ive-been-craving-wednesday/
