TRIPLE-B Pancakes

RECIPE – TRIPLE-B Pancakes
The Vegetarian Librarian & Pancake Master RØB Severson

Dry ingredients:
2 cups flour
1 Tsp baking powder
1 Tsp baking soda
pinch of salt

Wet ingredients:
2 cups soy milk
2 TBS vegetable oil
splash of vanilla

Triple-B ingredients:
2 mashed bananas
fresh blueberries
butterscotch chips (vegan if you can find them)

Mix together the dry ingredients, then add the wet. If the batter appears too thick you can add more soy milk to “suit your desires.” Next add your mashed bananas to the batter.

Heat your griddle up to 375 degrees. If you do not have a griddle, a fry pan with some soy butter works nice as well. Form your pancakes on the griddle about 5 inches in diameter. Immediately add your blueberry and butterscotch chips. Push them down with your finger so that the batter covers them.

Keep an eye on the pancakes (or go stroll around St. Louis) and flip them when they are golden brown. You can keep the pancakes warm in the oven as you make multiple batches.

Serve and enjoy!

Be creative. You can add all sorts of things to your pancakes. For a kick RØB suggested a little bourbon with the soy milk.
