Bananas + Chocolate + Peanut Butter = Out-of-this-World Pancake Goodness.
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour (I used white whole wheat)
3 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbs. oil
1 large egg
2 small to medium size ripe bananas
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips tossed with 2 teaspoons flour
1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Directions: For pancakes, In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix buttermilk, vanilla, oil, and egg. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until just combined (do not overmix). Mash bananas with a fork and fold in mashed bananas and chocolate chips. (Tossing the chocolate chips with the flour will prevent them from all sinking to the bottom of the bowl. Heat skillet to medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray or butter. Add pancake batter by the 1/4 cupfuls. When batter bubbles, flip pancake and cook the other side.
For syrup, in a small microwaveable bowl, combine peanut butter and maple syrup. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir to combine. Serve over hot pancakes.
