Y'all. I need to address you as y'all because the product I'm about to introduce Y'ALL to is made right here in San Antonio, TX! My beloved town of San Antonio is notoriously known for foods such as chicken-fried steak, puffy tacos, and barbacoa! Unbeknownst to some, San Antonio is flourishing with small businesses that create healthy food products; Grain 4 Grain is one of those small businesses!
Grain 4 Grain creates baking mixes that are made with Spent Barley. Spent Barley is a protein resource that has been extracted from the leftover remains of barley after it is used to produce beer. Unfortunately, spent barley commonly becomes waste at breweries across the country. Grain 4 Grain cleverly reuses it into barley flour, which consequently becomes a high protein/low carb product! How cool is that?!

****Disclaimer: grain 4-grain pancake mix contains milk & eggs*** Ok! On to the peanut butter & jelly pancakes! You are going to love these pancakes because they are the fluffiest healthy pancakes I've ever made! Allergic to peanuts? No problem! You can easily substitute your nut butter of choice. I've also created a sugar-free blueberry syrup to accompany this dish! Feel free to exchange the blueberries with your favorite fresh fruit. Enjoy, friends!

Pancake Ingredients 1 1/2 cups water 1 cup Grain 4 Grain pancake & waffle mix 1/2 cup of natural peanut butter (or other nut butter of choice) 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract Pinch of Himalayan salt Syrup Ingredients 1 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh 1 cup water 1/2 cup Monkfruit 3 teaspoons of coconut oil, divided 1. Combine blueberries, water, and Monkfruit in a small saucepan. Place it on the stove over medium-low heat. Allow the syrup to simmer until it becomes thick and can coat the back of the spoon. This can take up to 15 minutes! While the ad syrup is simmering, let's move on to the pancakes! 2. Combine all of the pancake ingredients into a large bowl. The peanut butter will be thick so make sure you have a strong hand (or whisk) to break up the batter! Whisk the batter until smooth. Let's move on to the cooking part! 3. For the pancake griddle, I find that keeping the temperature at 350 makes for fluffy, evenly cooked pancakes. These pancakes can get sticky so you want to apply a 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil to every pancake you make. I like thick fluffy pancakes so I scoop out 1/2 cup servings. If you don't like it that big, scoop out 1/4 cup servings!
4. Place 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil on top of your pancake griddle. Allow the oil to melt. Scoop a 1/2 cup serving of batter directly onto the area where you placed the coconut oil. Cook for a minute or until the edges become firm, and then flip. Cook for another minute. It's very important to apply more coconut oil per each pancake otherwise, they'll stick! Repeat until the batter is done. 5. Stack the pancakes and drizzle the blueberry syrup all over the pancakes!
