Peanut Butter Raspberry Dream

by Peachy Palate on February 14, 2013

If I could choose one fruit that goes amazingly well with peanut butter (aside from bananas obviously) it would definitely without a shadow of a doubt be raspberries. In fact, it’s the trio of banana, peanut butter and raspberry that I find hard to resist.

Remember the scones……the protein bake….and the baked oats….well meet the pancake version!

This was my pancake experiment of choice on pancake Tuesday and luckily enough it turned out to be quite the success! I was a little hesitant about putting the raspberries in the mix seen as they cost a mere fortune at the moment – that’s what you get for buying fruits out of season but I just can’t help myself! As soon as I spot them nothing could keep me away.

I made use of my peanut flour, a store cupboard staple for sure. If you’re looking for an extra plant protein hit this is a fantastic alternative to a more costly protein powder that tastes amazing too!

I went with a high stack, four perfect slices one on top of the other. The inside fluffy and cake like, the outer rim almost crispy, comparable to a good muffin top or perhaps the side of homemade waffle!

A sprinkling of bee pollen, coconut and big dollop of white cashew butter which I’ve been singing the praises of quite a bit lately. The white chocolate of the nut butter world. The Monki Brand of nut butters is amazing. 100% natural and organic nut butters, wholesome, and delicious Smile

They have quite the range of them available at The Happy Pear some of which you can buy online. For anyone outside of Ireland if you fancy doing a nut butter swap send me on a mail! Smile

This pancake stalk satisfied my pancake craving in one feel swoop and kept me going right the way up until lunch time. I actually ended up laying each slice flat and sharing the nut butter amongst the four slices for maximum enjoyment before digging in. But for pretty photography purposes I went with the stack! The efforts one goes too…

They also reheat perfectly if needs be…speaking from experience having spent too long faffing about taking photos!

And here I thought the combination of chocolate and raspberries was as good as it could get. Silly me! Peanut butter and raspberries sounds amazing! :)

I don’t think I’ve ever tried the raspberry + peanut butter combo! I suppose I have on a PB&J sandwich, but nothing beyond that. This looks yummy!

I made this today and it wasn’t really up to my expectations. I used an 8 inch springform pan and followed the instructions properly.I placed banana slices and blueberries in the pan & found out that the batter for this recipe wasn’t enough to cover the banana and blueberries properly. So it turns out like biscotti crumbled texture instead of a pancake :( any solutions to it ?

I’m not sure I’ve made it over and over and haven’t had any problems….Maybe just try using a smaller pan and cooking it for less time as ovens differ…
