Share with your friends!

A perfect breakfast or fun snack, these peanut butter apple pancake pizzas will leave you with a smile on your face every time!

Pancake covered with maple peanut butter, shredded apples and peanuts like a small breakfast pizza with glass of milk.

    Breakfast does not have to be boring! Turn your pancakes into a fun pizza inspired dish with the added protein punch of peanut butter and shredded apple “cheese.” It’s a perfectly fun way to fill your belly.

    I don’t know about you, but around here it seems that life just keeps getting busier by the minute.  Of course one of the most hectic times of day is the morning.

   Getting everyone up and dressed and out the door on time is a challenge under even the best of circumstances.  Making sure we’ve had a nutritious breakfast before we go just adds to the stress.

   But as with all things busy, the best way to tackle the problem is with a game plan! Bonus if the game plan includes something delicious!

    First things first, mornings go faster when there isn’t an argument.  So, picking breakfast staples that the kids are going love but you agree with is a number one priority.

     That’s where these Peanut Butter Apple Pancake Pizzas come in.  They are delicious, nutritious and fun to eat!

    Not to mention you can make a whole stack of pancakes on the weekend and put the extras in the fridge to use during the week.  It helps to get breakfast ready in an instant and puts a smile on the kiddos faces.  It doesn’t get much better than that!

    These wholesome gems come together with just a few ingredients.  You can make our favorite homemade pancake recipe if you’d like or feel free to use a mix, whichever you prefer.

     For the peanut butter layer, we have more options. Plain peanut butter would be great, but for something a little sweeter, stir in some maple syrup or honey.

   Next use a cheese grater to shred an apple over the peanut butter. It will give the effect of cheese but taste better with the peanut butter!

     Feel free to top with nuts or a drizzle of maple syrup if you’d like. Feel fre to customize to your heart’s content!
 

Ideas for leftovers: 

    Make a couple of batches of pancakes on Saturday morning and sit the family down to a nice breakfast together.  Put the extra pancakes in the refrigerator and pull one or two out for a quick weekday breakfast.

 Spread a little maple peanut butter on, throw in some slices of apple and hit the door.  Fold it like a taco or eat it like a pizza.

It is grab-n-go and practically mess free!  See, mornings are going to be a breeze!

Easy adaptations:

     I thought it would be fun to grate some apple to make it look like cheese on the pizza.  They really did look great.

Of course you could save yourself some time and chop or slice them instead.  No matter how you decide to cut your apple, these are sure to be a hit.

If you prefer honey, stir a bit into the peanut butter in place of the syrup. Or for a lower sugar version, leave it out and use plain peanut butter.

Instead of making an apple pizza, add slices of banana on the peanut butter and fold it to look like a taco.  Add a slice of bacon and drizzle of honey for a breakfast Elvis would love.

 My little guy thought it was so much fun to eat his little pizza.  I’m not going to lie, I thought it was a lot of fun too!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 batch pancakes
  • A few Tablespoons Creamy Peanut Butter
  • A few teaspoons maple syrup
  • Apples
  • Optional:
  • Additional syrup and Peanuts

Instructions

  1. Make the pancakes according to the recipe directions. I made mine about 4 oz of batter each, but a plate sized pizza would be fun for bigger kids!
  2. I found the apples grated easiest for me if I pealed them first. I also did some unpeeled and chopped. Both tasted great, but the grated apples looked more like cheese on a pizza!
  3. Warm up your syrup and drizzle over the apples.
  4. Top with chopped nuts.
  5. Sit back and watch the smiles!
