Unusual Pancakes for Dinner

Today I had a bizarre encounter, one of those strange encounters that you get when you live in a city.

As one of my many money-making odd jobs, I walk dogs. Dog walking is one of my favorite odd jobs, as it pays well, it's easy, you get some exercise and sunshine, and dogs are great company! Matthew was home, and a woman in the next building asked me to walk her 3 dogs- 2 huskies and a husky/corgi mix, because she had to work long hours for the weekend, and her husband was out of town.

So Matthew and I are walking the dogs (who are generally very well behaved) and a woman with a cat on a leash walked around the corner. The dogs started barking, and the little corgie/husky (who wasn't barking, just curious) slipped her leash and went over to the cat, and sniffed at it. The cat freaked out and started hissing (understandably.)

Now, If I were the woman (and if any of you were the woman) I would have A) Never walked my cat on a leash and B) picked up the cat and walked away. Instead she stood there looking confused as I had to pick up the 40 pound dog and walk across the street to try to get the walking harness back on.

ANYWAY, onto the recipe! A yummy pancake concoction with Daiya cheese and peanut butter! I know this seems weird, but my favorite sandwich as a child was peanut butter and cheese, and this combines these two flavors in a non-animal producty/glutinous manner, and is SUPER delicious!
Peanut Butter and Cheese Pancakes
1 cup GF Bisquick OR 1 cup GF Flour mix (with xanthan) or (if not GF) 1 cup bisquick or flour
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1-1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk (depending on texture)
3 tbsp peanut butter
1/3 cup Daiya Mozzarella Style Shreds
Maple Syrup (for topping)

In a bowl, combine bisquick, peanut butter, vanilla, oil, and a bit of the milk. Stir to combine.
While stirring, add in a bit of milk at a time, until it is a nice runny consistancy (like normal pancake batter)
Add in the cheese, and stir to combine.
Heat up a frying pan on medium high, and spray with some non-stick coating.
When nice and hot, drop in some batter, and cook until the uncooked top is bubbling up, and the edges look  crispy/dry.
Flip pancake, and cook a few minutes more until cooked through.
Repeat with rest of batter.
Serve with Maple Syrup, and enjoy the unusual but delicious pancakery!
