Banana and chocolate chips pancakes

Have you ever find yourself with a bunch of over ripe bananas because all of a sudden your kids are "tired" of eating bananas just after they asked for them????

I don't know for you, but for me as much as I love making and eating banana bread, it can get a little bit old after the 3rd one, even smeared with peanut butter or nutella!!! So I decided to try and make pancakes (I have kids that will eat pancakes at every meal!!) with all my lonely bananas.

So here I am, googling recipes for banana pancakes and all the recipes I found and liked were using sliced bananas on top of the pancakes, which my kids will never eat, what I wanted was pancakes with mashed bananas. So I decided to make my own recipe with what I knew about pancake making. So here goes...

Banana and chocolate chips pancakes

Ingredients :

1 1/2 cup flour
1 tbsp. of sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/12 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mashed banana
1 egg
2 tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chocolate chips

In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients, add the chocolate chips.

In another bowl whisk the egg, add the mashed banana, the buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients and mix until just blended, don't worry if you have some lumps in your batter!!!

Using a ladle pour pancake batter in pools 2 inches away from one another, you can make them as big or small as you want...When pancakes have bubbles on top and dry around the edges flip then over, cook them for another minute or so. Repeat until no more batter is left.

And serve warm.

Hope you will enjoy them as much as we do here!!!
