I need to tell you that, for me, these pancakes are very addicting. I literally cannot stop myself from eating 5 or 6 or them. They are very thin…but still. I first tried a version of these pancakes when my sister, Nicole, made them at our family reunion. I immediately fell in love and asked for the recipe. Her recipe contained no salt and didn’t have cocoa powder or chocolate chips. I changed them up a bit but either way, they are delicious.
This recipe uses your blender. Add all the ingredients to your blender and put it on the lowest setting until the batter is completely mixed.
Pour a quarter cup of the thin batter onto a hot griddle. When the pancakes start bubbling (about one minute) then flip them over.
If you want, add a few chocolate chips on top of the bubbly pancakes. I used regular chocolate chips but I would suggest using mini chocolate chips because the pancakes are so thin. Just 10 chocolate chips on each pancake made a big difference. But no worries, if you are going for super healthy, just leave the chocolate chips out.
Flip the bubbling pancakes over and let them cook on the other side. Top the pancakes with banana slices (or not) and enjoy. You can use syrup if you want, but I don’t. With the sugar and ripe banana there is enough sweetness for me.Print
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I use whole wheat flour that has been ground from soft white wheat, this is the best way to keep the pancakes less dense)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 very ripe medium to large banana (If the banana is not ripe it won’t be sweet enough)
- 2 Tbsp cocoa powder*
- Chocolate chips (mini would work best)*
- Add all of the ingredients (except chocolate chips) to a blender. Blend on a low speed until well processed.
- On a hot greased griddle (I use a non-stick cooking spray like Pam), pour 1/4 cup of the batter. Cook for about one minute until bubbles start to form. If desired, sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top of each pancakes. Flip the pancakes and cook for another minute on the opposite side.
- Serve the pancakes with butter and syrup or just plain. I like to top my pancakes with sliced bananas.
*You can leave out the cocoa powder and chocolate chips and these pancakes are still really good.
