This Quick and easy breakfast of Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes is something you’re going to want to eat every morning..You only need a few minutes to make these! So get cooking now!!
I love hearty breakfasts..and who doesn’t? But let’s face it, no one has the time to make perfect breakfast every morning. And on sundays when you’ve got all the time in the world, all you really want to do is curl up in a ball and spend your day in the bed.
I don’t get too excited about making breakfasts either.. on sundays or otherwise, but when I saw a few bananas on my kitchen shelf my mind started racing. I had to use them for breakfast and I knew just what I wanted..I wanted my banana muffins loaded with chocolate chips or with chocolate swirls but I needed a break from my oven so I decided to be creative and Pancakes was the answer. What I love about pancakes is their versatility. You can chuck in anything in a basic pancake batter and they still taste great. I had bananas and I was craving chocolate..so I mixed them in and VOILA..I had a breakfast to remember ! They were fluffy, moist, full of melted chocolate chips and had hints of that banana, in one word they were PERFECT ! I basically had these pancakes throughout the day..saved a few and had them later. They tasted great every time..even cold!
You don’t even have to have a train of ingredients ready..flour, butter, yogurt, baking powder, bananas, chocolate chips, milk and sugar is all you’re going to need. Very basic and easily available. So get your ingredients ready and get cooking! :)
RECIPE: Banana and Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Makes: 5 Prep Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 2 minutes for each pancake
- Flour, 1 cup or 14 tablespoons or 150 grams approx
- Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon
- Salt, a pinch
- Melted Butter, 3 tablespoons
- Yogurt, 2 tablespoons or 1 egg
- Milk, 1 cup or 240 ml
- Banana, Pureed, 1 large (Whizz a banana in a blender until its completely mashed)
- Chocolate Chip, 1/3 cup
- Extra butter for cooking
In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together melted butter, yogurt, milk and banana puree. Add these wet ingredients to the dry flour mix until everything is combined. Add in the chocolate chips to the batter.
Heat a pan on medium flame, when your pan is hot (not too hot though), grease it with some butter. Take a ladle full of the pancake batter and pour onto the greased pan. Spread it a little using a spoon to make an even circle.
Wait until the top of the pancake is covered with small holes completely. Once the top is covered with holes and the bottom side is golden brown, flip the pancake and cook on the other side until cooked.
Repeat until you run out of batter.
NOTE: Keep the flame at medium at all times, never high. If your pancakes are browning too quickly, lower the heat for 20-30 seconds and increase it to medium again. Use your judgement and keep alternating between low and medium to make sure the pancakes don’t cook too quickly or too slowly. It should take about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each pancake. Serve the pancakes with some chocolate chips, fresh bananas and chocolate sauce!
