Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Recipe type: Breakfast
Total time: 
Serves: 4
An easy, healthy breakfast and great way to use up that last overripe banana. These also double and triple well if you do have more bananas handy :)
  • 1¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (about ½ cup)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1-2 Tbsp butter (for pan)
  1. In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In small bowl, whisk milk, banana, egg and vanilla until smooth, then add to dry ingredients and stir well to combine. Stir in chocolate chips.
  2. Heat large griddle or frying pan over medium heat and, once hot, lightly grease with butter. Pour batter onto griddle in approximately 3-inch circles. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles appear on top and do not immediately pop. Flip pancake and cook for another 2 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Continue with remaining batter, adding a bit of butter to the pan between batches. Serve immediately.
