Healthy Cocoa Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes

Healthy Cocoa Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes created by Swirling F.

One of my favorite pancakes ever! These are delicious, chocolaty pancakes with high fiber, reduced fat, reduced sugar, and even some fruit snuck in there (shh... don't tell!). Very yummy, very satisfying. If you wish to enjoy these plain, boost the sugar and the chocolate chips.

ingredients

directions

  • In a small bowl whisk milk, egg whites, vanilla, and banana.
  • In large bowl, mix flours, cocoa powder, sugar, flax seed, baking soda and salt.
  • Add wet mixture to dry, and whisk just until dry ingredients are moistened, folding in chocolate chips.
  • Pour pancakes onto greased griddle (at about 350-375°F) and let sit until lightly bubbling and edges have began to firm. Flip and cook until firm and browned. Top with jam or a sweet sauce.
  • FREEZING INSTRUCTIONS: If you make these to freeze them, don't make the topping. Cool the pancakes on a wire rack, and then when they are completely cool, wrap them in tinfoil (I wrap them in packs of two for 1 serving) and freeze. Microwave until warm, then toast to unfreeze them.

    Hi, thanks for this amazing recipe. I think I might add a bit more sugar as I needed more sweetness, and add a bit of cinnamon just for the flavor profile. Thank you!

    If any one in this household makes pancakes, I always mash up a VERY ripe banana and ad it to the batter. I have also been known to mash up a VERY ripe banana and spread on toaster waffles before added syrup. I have also taken my mashed banana to a breakfast restaurant to add to their waffles.

    The only tweak that I made was to increase the amount of chocolate chips to about 1/2 cup. Served with bananas, chopped pecans and homemade caramel sauce, they were excellent. I wouldn't say it was a healthy breakfast, but it was a good breakfast.

    Well I haven't made it yet, I'm a master at pancakes. I know how to make all of em pretty much. I mean this is so clear and will probably become the #489 best pancakes I would ever eat (I have like 20,000 different pancakes I like which are all in order from #20,000 to #1).
