Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes

My new favourite pancake recipe, hands down (vegan link below). We even ate them as a snack the next day and OMG, so good. Next time I may even go as far as adding some shredded zucchini since it's growing out of my ears and zucchini just adds to the "healthy" factor. I label this as healthy because it uses whole wheat, flax, bananas, and compared to other pancake recipes, this one is a little healthier, ok? Yes it has chocolate chips, but moderation in all things is my thing :)

Makes 12 pancakes

  • 2 ripe medium bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbs flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbs butter, melted
  • 2 Tbs canola oil
  • 1/4 cup + 3 Tbs milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup rolled or quick oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  1. Heat up your skillet to medium high heat.
  2. Combine bananas, eggs, flaxseeds, water, vanilla, butter, oil, and milk.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, oats, flour, and salt.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter onto hot buttered skillet. Cook until it starts to bubble, then flip to the other side for 2-4 minutes.
  6. Serve with maple syrup goodness and enjoy!!!
Bon Appetit!
