Banana-Chocolate Chip Pancakes

This recipe is my go-to for easy pancakes. I always have bananas in the fruit bowl and chocolate chips in the cupboard so I know I can whip these up in no time at all. They're easy, fast, delicious and sweet enough so you don't have to add any maple syrup on top.

-1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
-1 tablespoon of sugar
-Dash of salt
-Dash of cinnamon
-One banana
-2 eggs
-2 tablespoons of milk, whatever kind you like
-Splash of vanilla extract
-Mini chocolate chips, to taste. I did 2 tablespoons.

-Turn your griddle or skillet on medium heat
-In a small bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well.

-In a separate bowl, mash up your banana.

-Add the rest of the wet ingredients to the banana and mix well.

-Then, add the dry to the wet. Don't overmix. It's ok if there are dry spots because we'll mix completely once we've added our chocolate chips.

-Add your chocolate!

-Coat your griddle or skillet with butter, canola spray, or coconut oil. I may have added a bit too much. Whoops.

-Using an ice cream scoop, add your batter to the griddle. You can make the pancakes as big or as small as you like. I usually get 4-5 little pancakes per serving.

-Cook them until the top starts bubbling up, about 3-5 minutes. Then flip and cook for another 2-4 minutes.

And they're all done! You CAN top them with maple syrup or honey but I find that they're sweet enough. Sometimes I drizzle just a tiny bit so they're not super dry. Whatever you choose to top them with, you can't go wrong with this recipe.
