Peanut Butter Pancake Batter: Great Idea?

If you can't control your peanut butter, you can't expect to control your life. ~ Bill Watterson

It would seem that the Peanut Butter Batter Pancake Mix, which is also known as Patent #US 6797310, has already been created in some form or other, especially considering that George Washington Carver developed more than one hundred recipes utilizing peanuts in his attempts to improve the quality of life for poor southern farmers. But he never did get around to patenting peanut butter pancakes, paving the way for... well, what has followed.



This invention reflects a method of using peanut products in conjunction with a pancake mix, in a unique way (via peanut flour, peanut butter, peanut chunks, peanut oil and peanut essence) to create a nutritious, aromatic, new food product. This is accomplished by mixing all of these ingredients with water, milk, buttermilk and/or club soda to provide a batter, and cooking, which produces the final product of tender, fluffy, and peanut crunchy inside, crispy on the outside, pancakes. The product freezes well and can be eaten cold or subsequently reheated for consumption.

Anyone who loves peanut butter has to be on the right track, for no one in their right mind (or even otherwise) would ever knock the marvels of that wonderful indulgence. There’s something about this though that is reminiscent of that old joke about the inventor of ice cubes. I believe the punch line was that the recipe died with him? Redundant seems to be the operative word, but then again, who’s to say what the parent offices do to justify their fees these days?

Consider some of the following food-related inventions and ideas. Rane’s piece, "High-Fat Diet During Pregnancy May Cause Overweight Offspring " is most interesting, as well a s M Dee Dubroff’s post, “Toast To Tongues-in-Cheeks:Greeting Cards Made From Soy.

Bon appetit and…

Happy Peanut Butter Batter!

 Interesting, but maybe

 Interesting, but maybe even too nutty for the biggest peanut butter lovers. I know nuts contain good fats, but this might push the weekly limit!
