Mini Maple AB&J Pancake Sandwiches

Mini Maple AB&J Pancake Sandwiches
1¼ cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1¼ cups milk1 egg
¼ cup Justin’s Maple Almond Butter
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Wild Blueberry Jam

1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. (I made this mixture at home before we left on vacation and brought it with us sealed in a Ziploc bag.
2. Beat milk with egg and almond butter until smooth.
3. Add to dry ingredients and beat just until well moistened.
4. Lightly butter hot griddle. Spoon by tablespoons onto griddle making silver dollar sized pancakes (mine actually ended up a little bit bigger which was fine). Cook until golden brown on both sides.
5. Spread desired amount of blueberry jam between two pancakes. Serve!
I came up with this idea in Whole Foods when I found the maple flavored almond butter. The maple inspired me to make something New Hampshire-ish that was also toddler friendly and fun. She liked them but is that any realy accomplishment? I mean pancakes+peanut butter (almost) and jelly? Thats a sure thing, right? I ate the pancakes with syrup but Daddy had them with the blueberry jam and we both thought they were delicious! Even Papa had a bite!
