Bean Pancake Paninis

I've been trying to come up with easy and quick lunches, and I usually end up right back at paninis. But Paninis can get a bit boring, so I need to sort of jazz it up.

And I thought to myself "What else can we panini?"

It came to me- pancakes!

Bean Pancake Paninis with A side of Potatoes
1/2 cup GF Bisquick
1/3 cup mixed beans of your choice, mashed
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1 tbsp olive oil

The Toppings I used:
sundried tomatoes
vegannaise (vegan mayonnaise)
Salt and pepper

Potatoes, sliced and cooked.

In a bowl mix the bisquick, mashed beans, salt and pepper, and olive oil.
Add water a bit at a time, until it's the texture of pancake batter.
Fry up the pancakes, and set aside.
Heat up your panini press.
Take 1 pancake, and spread the vegannaise onto it.
top with the sundried tomatoes, spinach, tempeh, and spices. (or whatever toppings you choose!)
Top with another pancake.
Carefully transfer onto panini press, and grill until the top of the top pancake is crisped.
Cut in half, serve with potatoes, and enjoy the noms.


  1. wow.... great idea!


  2. instead of the Bisquick (since they don't sell it where I live) could I make my own pancake batter instead?

  3. @Grace- Thanks!

    @Michelle- Totally! Use any pancake batter mix you like! i just love the bisquick GF
