Banana Chocolate-Chip Pancakes

We are really bad about eating our bananas around here. Usually, the only reason they get eaten at all is because I make the baby eat them. But he's a little person and can only eat so much. (But it is amazing the amount of food he can put away!) Inevitably, we always have at least one or two overripe bananas hanging around, and this morning was no exception. So what a better way to eat our overripe bananas than in some Banana Chocolate-Chip Pancakes! I used half-white and half-wheat flour but you can use any combo you like. These were fluffy and sweet, and filled me right up. The husband thought the chocolate-chips were a bit much, so you can leave them out if you like, but I thought they were just right. Happy pancake making!

Banana Chocolate-Chip Pancakes
Adapted from: Chocolate and Tea

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder, heaping
1 tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup chocolate chips

1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, egg, butter, and mashes bananas. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the banana mixture. Mix until combined. Batter will be lumpy.
2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan on medium-high heat. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan and brown both sides of the pancake. Serve hot, with syrup!
Makes about 12 small pancakes.
