Fluffy Peanut Butter mini pancakes – no dairy, no eggs
I have posted several pancake recipes on the blog but here is one more: a fluffy stack of peanut butter pancakes that contain no eggs or dairy. The recipe came about through necessity – I wanted to make pancakes but had no eggs, made them anyway and they turned out as fluffy as any.
Peanut butter pancakes were a specialty of Rosa Park, the woman who changed the world by refusing to give up her seat on the bus for a white man. Although Ms. Park was not the first to take a stand (or a seat) against racial discrimination, hers was the act that sparked a civil rights revolution, long overdue.
The recipe is adapted from Rosa Park’s recipe for “featherlite” pancakes, found written on the back of a manila envelope among her papers when she died in 2005. There are several version of the original recipe online.
The recipe is simple: mix the dry ingredients, mix the wet ingredients and then combine them. Do not over mix, but you probably already know that.
Enjoy a bite of history with your breakfast.
1 cup flour
2 heaping teaspoons baking powder
A pinch of salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 cups plant based milk (soy, rice, oat)
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon peanut oil
Combine flour, baking powder, sa;t and sugar in a small bowl.
Combine the milk, peanut butter and oil in another bowl.
Add the flour mixture to the milk mixture and stir until just combined.,
Let sit for a couple of minutes to allow the flour to absorb the liquids.
Heat up a griddle and lightly spray with oil (I use my own spray bottle that I fill with oil).
Scoop small mounds of batter with a small ice cream scoop to make mini pancakes.
Cook on a lightly oiled griddle until golden, turning once.
Enjoy with maple syrup and sliced bananas.
