Happy Saturday!! I love making breakfast on Saturdays. Sometimes we have to rush off to sports games, but this morning I had some time to make something special. Something that I don't have time to make during the week. I had a banana pancake recipe that I wanted to try (since I had 2 overripe bananas staring at me from the fruit bowl) and I just kept adding on and adding on. And came up with these...Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes.
These were rich and decadent and only needed a drizzle of syrup. I ate 2 and was full full full!!
Each bite had a great combo of banana, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. I think I might add less chocolate chips next time since it was such a rich recipe to begin with.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes
recipe adapted from Muncher Cruncher
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons agave (You could use honey or splenda)
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup skim milk
2 ripe bananas
2 egg whites
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Directions: Mash bananas first. Mix together wet ingredients with bananas, and then add dry ingredients. Spoon batter onto hot griddle.
It was just as easy as mixing up any other pancake batter in the morning. And it's kid tested!!
Hope you're having a great Saturday. Now that we are all fueled up, it's softball and baseball all day today. Have a great one, friends!!
