banana (chocolate chip) pancakes

I do declare, these are the fluffiest and most successful pancakes I have ever made!

The chocolate chips are optional and the pancakes are delicious both ways; we did half and half last night. From Skinnytaste, with some variations.
  • 1 cup unbleached white or white whole wheat flour [I did half whole wheat and half white whole wheat]
  • 1 tsp baking powder [I took this down from 2 t]
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large banana, ripe, mashed well
  • 1 cup 1% milk [skim worked fine]
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla [I upped this from 1 t]
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips [I used big chunks; the technique of placing them individually on the top of each pancake worked well]
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine milk, egg white, oil, vanilla and mashed bananas in another medium sized bowl and mix until smooth. 

Combine wet ingredients with the dry and mix well with a wooden spoon until there are no more dry spots. Don't over-mix.

Heat a large skillet on medium-low heat, spray with cooking spray and pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter. Add 1 teaspoon of chocolate chips in each pancake.

When the pancake starts to bubble and the edges begin to set, flip the pancakes. Repeat with the remainder of the batter.
