Bake Club: Compost Pancakes

Updated: Jun 5, 2020


1 cup flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

¾ cup milk

1 egg

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

8 snack sized pretzels, broken up

¼ cup oats

½ cup graham crackers, broken up

¼ cup chocolate chips

¼ cup butterscotch chips

Butter, for serving

Maple syrup, for serving

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and oil. Pour this into the flour mixture and whisk until your pancake batter is smooth.

3. In a medium bowl, combine the pretzels, oats, graham crackers, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips.

4. Spray your griddle or nonstick skillet and warm it over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Once the pancake is on the griddle, sprinkle 3 tablespoons worth of your pretzel/chocolate chip mixture on top! Cook until the pancake batter has set on the bottom and browned (bubbles will begin to appear on the top and a few will burst), 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a spatula and cook the other side until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.

5. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
