Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes
How better to start Sunday morning than banana chocolate chip pancakes in bed?
These pancakes are sweet but not too sweet. We didn't even need maple syrup to enjoy them. Just a little whipped cream, fresh coffee, and a side of bacon. Yum!
For two people (about four pancakes each):
3/4 cup flour
1/2 Tbs sugar
1 tsp baking powder
5/8 cup of milk
1/4 cup banana, mashed (we used one large banana)
1/2 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips (save a few to decorate)
Whipped cream or maple syrup as topping
Combine the sugar, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the milk, mashed banana, egg and vanilla.
Mix well and then fold in the chocolate chips.
Heat a skillet over medium and spray with oil (you can also use a paper towel to lightly dab on the oil).
Once the pan is very hot, add a scoop of the batter (we made two pancakes at a time with about 1/4 cup batter each).
Cook until the pancake has many bubbles and then flip.
Cook another minute or until golden.
Serve with slices of banana, chocolate chips and whipped cream (or maple syrup).
If you are worried about the pancakes getting cold while you cook the others, you can stick them in a low-heated oven to stay warm.
