Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

IMG_1930Hi breakfast eaters– There’s a walk we like to take down across Balboa Island, over the channel on the ferry and then along Newport Beach.  And there we end up at that “fine dining establishment”– Mutt Lynch’s.  Long rustic wooden tables, lots of hustle & bustle, blaring sports from multiple tvs, views out to the beach, and pancakes,really great pancakes– my favorite being their banana chocolate chip pancakes.

So here’s our at home version, whipped up when the grand-girls came to stay.  I could eat these things all day.

2 smashed bananas
1 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 stp. salt
3/4 cup unflavored yogurt
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Smash those bananas to a pulp in a large mixing bowl.  Then stir in the oatmeal, flour,brown sugar, baking powder & salt.  Mix in the yogurt, milk eggs, vanilla and oil.  And finally fold in the chocolate chips.

Spoon the batter (it will be fairly thick) onto a medium heat griddle that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Will make about 15 fluffy, sweet, thick pancakes.

Just typing this up, makes me want to go stir up a batch!

    • Hi HM– this is my favorite pancake recipe with our without the chocolate. I think the yogurt makes them light and the oatmeal makes them hearty. I hope you like them!
      P.S.– loved you lemon blueberry donut recipe!
