Peach, Goat Cheese and Almond Butter Pancakes

Peach, Goat Cheese and Almond Butter Pancakes | almost getting it together

I know… Peach, Goat Cheese and Almond Butter Pancakes is a mouthful (pun not intended) of a name, but I couldn’t trick you by leaving out some delicious component or another. Plus, this is probably my last chance to post a peach recipe because summer is unofficially over and peach season is close to unofficially over.

Way more delicious than creepy IHOP pancakes.

Funny story about mouthfuls of names… my middle name is Jo, after my father (Joseph). My grandmother told my mother that Cassandra Pisone was already a mouthful of a name for a little girl so I needed a short middle name. My mother wanted to call me CJ for short but my grandmother started calling me Cassie and it stuck.

I’m currently obsessed with goat cheese. I had to stop by the Strip District for coffee a the Saturday before last after my long run. Yes, I’m such a snob I buy speciality coffee from a coffee store in the Strip. Anyway, I decided to wander around to see if there was anything delicious I couldn’t live without. There was a goat cheese stand with fresh goat cheese. I went through an entire container in barely over a week. It was insanely delicious.

Breakfast decadence.

These Peach, Goat Cheese and Almond Butter Pancakes were my breakfast a few Sundays in a row. I basically was full all day because they are so high in protein and healthy fat from the almond meal, almond butter, coconut and goat cheese. The first time I made them I didn’t intend on adding any of the toppings but I’m so glad I did.

Why have I not put cheese on pancakes before? I love goat cheese, nut butters, and pancakes so this seems right up my alley :)

I haven’t tried almond meal in my pancake batter but I will! These look yummy! Anything with caramelized peaches and almond butter is ok in my book :) I never would have thought to add goat cheese, but I bet it’s amazing with the sweetness of the peaches. This would be a great recipe to use frozen peaches later in the winter too :) Thanks for sharing

laura @ scribbles and sass on September 3, 2014 11:30 am

yum! what a great sweet and savoury combo. i love goat cheese, so mixing it with anything – especially delicious things – would make any recipe a win in my books!

i’m never been a huge fan of my name and always tried to go by a nickname, but it’s never stuck and my name is short already, so rarely shortened..but sometimes i take the last “a” off.

Ooomgg there are so many of my favorite things in these pancakes. I can see how they’d be super filling! I’m currently on the hunt for more filling breakfasts because I’ve been having this issue of getting really hungry at 9:30 am which is way too early to even think about lunch, soooo these might need to be on the horizon for me. And I loled at “creepy IHOP pancakes.” For the record, these look wayyyy better.

I kind of play with times I eat because I get hungry so early in the day… I usually eat breakfast at like 9:30 so then I’m full until 2 or so. But I think I’m over eating at night. Whoops.

These are my kind of pancakes! I made huckleberry waffles a few days ago & topped them with almond butter & peaches. DOES THIS MEAN WE ARE SOUL MATES?

I sure hope so!

I’ve never had a huckleberry but I see them all the time in Oregon… I need to try!

Promise not to hate me if I tell you that I’m kind of happy summer is over? I’ve had enough of the heat — bring on the coziness of fall! And I don’t technically have a middle name… Apparently my parents forgot to fill in that part of the birth certificate :lol: Oh, and if you wanna talk bizarre nicknames, sometimes people simply call me “A” :shock:

I bought some peaches to have with my lunches this week to try to suck up the last bit of summer fruit. Not ripe & juicy anymore – so disappointing. My favorite summer fruit for sure!
