Wholegrain Chocolate Banana pancakes

The husband and Miss Jyve both love chocolate and banana, so why choose one over the other? What better way than to combine the 2 for a delicious and filling snack/ breakfast. Quick and easy to make, they are extra indulgent with a generous serving of pure maple syrup/ chocolate sauce and sliced bananas. Enjoy!

SERVES 2-4

Ingredients

1 14 cups whole wheat flour
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
12 tsp. salt
14 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. melted butter
12 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup whole milk
1 medium very ripe banana, mashed (about 12 cup)
1 egg
Sliced bananas, maple and chocolate syrup, for serving

Instructions

  • Mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a regular bowl; set aside.
  • Whisk sugar, 1 Tbsp. butter, vanilla, milk, banana, and egg in a larger bowl until smooth.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to banana mixture, whisking until smooth.
  • Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat; brush with remaining melted butter.
  • Spoon about 1⁄4 cup of the batter for each pancake onto the pan.
  • Cook until bubbles form on tops of pancakes, 2-3 minutes. Flip pancakes and continue cooking until center is cooked through, about 2 minutes more.
  • Serve with sliced bananas and chocolate/maple syrup.
Note:
Whole wheat flour makes for a smooth, fluffy pancake, but for a heartier texture, use regular whole wheat and mix in ¼ cup instant oats.
