I’ve taken my Grandmother’s waffle sauce and added peanut butter to create a creamy, rich, smooth syrup that’s certain to make every peanut butter lover’s breakfast dreams come true.

Or next time you are enjoying a scoop of ice cream before bedtime, top it with a bit of leftover peanut butter pancake syrup. You won’t regret it.
Peanut Butter Syrup Recipe
You can whip up this syrup recipe in less than 5 minutes. Start by thoroughly whisking the flour and sugar together before adding the milk. If you have the flour and sugar lump free it should keep your syrup lump free as you add the milk.
