I love pancakes. If you don’t already know this about me, then you will quickly learn this fact as you check out our blog. We have pancakes every Sunday. I used to make homemade maple know the stuff that is 2 cups of sugar with 1 cup of water.. yeah that stuff. We also are big fans of peanut butter slathered on top of our pancakes too. When we decided to make a healthier jump I wanted something I could use to top our pancakes with. I don’t like paying the money for real maple syrup, so I knew I needed to come up with a new solution. Then it dawned on me. Why not combine the two, peanut butter and syrup! I then came up with the wonderful idea of having a Peanut Butter Syrup!


I tested this recipe at least 6 different times just trying to get the texture right and I believe I have finally championed it! This syrup has minimal sweetener, and therefore is definitely healthier than your typical store-bought syrup. It has such a great creamy texture and makes for an awesome party in your mouth for every bite!

Homemade Peanut Butter Syrup
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This amount tops about 12 pancakes
Serves: 6
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I use soy milk)
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1-3 Tbsp agave
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • a pinch of salt
  1. Place all the ingredients in a sauce pan and heat over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until desired texture. Don't let it boil or it becomes too thick. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. The top will glaze over, so stir as needed.


I can only imagine what this homemade peanut butter syrup would taste like on top of banana pancakes! Yumm!

    I made a smaller batch of this in the microwave and it was AMAZING. Perfect on my two ingredient banana pancakes (no longer vegan though).

    I just made this today to go with my vegan banana pancakes and it was amazing! I will definitely be making this again in the very near future 🙂

    Amazing recipe. We are not vegan but have cut down substantially on meat and other animal products. However, my kids still adore a nice bowl of vanilla ice cream and this syrup was amazing on it. I have bought Reese’s PB Syrup before and I don’t feel good about my kids eating all that HFCS. This is a healthy alternative. Thanks for posting.
