Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Mat’s bananas were going bad, aaaand I had already made muffins the night before….so clearly the best solution was pancakes. He also made me go running that morning, so, extra need for pancakes. I was going to make a healthy version with whole wheat flour and no sugar, but…I went running. I earned these. And the banana makes it healthy, right?

This recipe comes from Crazy for Crust. I normally make some adaptations but I didn’t change a whole lot this time, and they were delicious.

ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 brownish bananas, mashed
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tbs vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
instructions:
  • Whisk all non-liquid ingredients together (flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon) in a large bowl.
  • Add in the liquids (milk, egg, vanilla, mashed bananas, vegetable oil) and stir until combined.
  • Add in chocolate chips now, or put them on later to form a smiley face. Your choice.
  • Melt a 1/2 tbs of butter on hot griddle/skillet or spray with nonstick spray.
  • Pour desired amount of batter on skillet over medium heat. Flip when the edges begin to bubble.
  • Once the bottom side is a lovely golden brown, serve with syrup or nutella or more bananas. Yummmm. 🙂
