Peanut Butter Breakfast Syrup

Recipe by  

"My daughters wanted peanut butter syrup on their waffles, so I made this up. It's delicious! Stores in the refrigerator for a really long time. Serve over pancakes with sliced bananas. Try coconut extract in place of vanilla for added flavor."

I used evaporated milk in this recipe, plain ol' Jif (I don't keep natural peanut butter on hand) and folded in a half cup of chopped salted peanuts. I did not try this myself but my kids told me it's fantastic. Especially over homemade whole wheat waffles. ;)

I gave this four stars because it is easy to make and delicious. The end result is a beautiful peanut flavored syrup that your kids and peanut lovers will enjoy. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar because it is my favorite.

This is delicious. I only had whole milk and it did thicken it for me. It was more like a caramel consistency. It was still delicious.

So easy and delicious. My kids request this recipe for pancakes and waffles. I make it just like the recipe says. A hit in our family of 8!

I tried this recipe today. While I was making it, I had three out of four boys whine about 'Peanut Butter syrup, EWE!" I cooked it up and served it anyway...It was a HIT! All of a sudden it was their idea in the first place-- rolling my eyes...

I made this as written with regular peanut butter. It is quite tasty with a sweet peanut butter flavor and a hint of vanilla. I was worried at first that it was too thin, but it thickened a bit upon standing. This syrup turned toasted frozen waffles into a special weekday breakfast. I am excited to try this on homemade waffles and pancakes too. It also crossed my mind to maybe try this with Nutella in place of peanut butter to make a chocolate syrup, I think I may do that next time.

It was great! It works with 1 and 2% milk too!

I am a peanut butter fanatic, something that I passed to my kids. I made this this morning because we ran out of regular syrup. We like peanut butter on our waffles and pancakes anyway so I thought why not look for a recipe that combines both? This was very easy to put together not to mention with ingredients we always have on hand. I did use half brown sugar and half regular sugar after seeing it in a different recipe elsewhere (along with butter but I figured we'd better pace ourselves) whole milk and plain ol' brand name peanut butter. Great recipe and I'm positive I'll be making it again.
