Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Pancakes

IMG_8967Hey there– I’m a big pancake fan.  Hot and syrupy–  So when I came across a version of pancakes chock full of all my favorite ingredients, I couldn’t wait to flip them on our griddle.  These are hearty and sweet and I think you’d like them too.

3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup white flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips*

Smash the bananas to a pulp in a mixing bowl.  Stir in the sugar, eggs and oil.  Then mix in the 2 slurs, wheat germ, baking powder and salt.  Next, blend in the milk, yogurt and vanilla. Finally, put in the really good bits– the walnuts and chocolate chips.

Pour the pancakes out on a medium hot griddle, sprayed with cooking spray.  Eat them hot with lots of syrup and a mug of tea.  Good way to start a Saturday morning.
