What makes these peanut butter COOKIE pancakes instead of just peanut butter? They taste like a peanut butter cookie! They have two different textures that are enhanced by extra syrup/honey/some kind of soaking vehicle. Warm, they’re just the slightest bit springy–like springy to the level of which I thought about calling them “peanut butter mochi pancakes.”
Cold out of the fridge, they’re dense and peanutty, almost like a fudgy, fluffy cookie. I like them both ways!
What gives these pancakes their unusual qualities?
- Sweet rice flour: while it’s not the biggest nutritional superstar flour out there, it adds the necessary binding glutinous qualities for gluten-free baking. If you are interested in gluten-free baking, this is a must-buy because you can use it in so many recipes! Even though I can tolerate gluten, I like to switch it up between gluten-full and gluten-free recipes for a change of pace.
- PB2/peanut flour: I actually don’t like PB2 as a peanut butter replacer (the original reason why I bought it), but it is great for adding that peanut flavor to baked goods when you don’t want the additional fat or liquid for nutritional or texture purposes.
Pancake Fridays: Peanut Butter Cookie Pancakes
- ¼ c. oat flour
- ¼ c. sweet rice flour
- 1.5 tablespoons PB2 or peanut flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon ground golden flax seed
- ½ cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon unrefined sugar or liquid sweetener
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1.5 tablespoons peanut butter melted if not liquid enough to easily stir in
- Whisk together the flours, baking powder, salt and flax seed. Stir in the milk, sweetener, vanilla and peanut butter. Heat a pan over medium heat while batter rests. Lightly grease the pan with a thin coat of oil and dollop heaping tablespoons of batter into the pan. Let cook for 1-2 minutes, or until browned on the bottom. Flip and let cook for another minute. Serve warm, with bananas, honey, more PB, jam, etc.
