I don’t know what it is, but Tuesdays seem to be the hardest day for me.
Mondays you are all refreshed from the weekend, but on Tuesdays, you figure out how tired you are and that the week isn’t even halfway done yet. So to brighten up your morning, I have made you all pancakes!
To be fair, I didn’t make these this morning. I was in a Tuesday stupor: waking up and grabbing a Starbucks pumpkin scone, trying to make it in time to class. But who can say no to pancakes for dinner?
Especially if it’s full of banana and bursting with chocolate chips and filled with oats. Sure I made oatmeal pancakes before, and chocolate chip pancakes before. I have even made chocolate chip banana pecan pancakes. I love my pancakes, so I want to make as many different combinations as possible.
If you want a great pancake to get you through the week, I would definitely suggest these ones. Breakfast, lunch or, like me, dinner. I won’t judge.
These healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Pancakes are made with oats and sweetened with one ripe banana. One of my favourite breakfast recipes.
- 1 medium banana, ripe
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp canola oil
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp salted butter, melted
- 3 Tbsp milk
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 Tbsp chocolate chips
Mash the banana in a medium bowl. Add the baking powder and mash together.
Add in the egg, oil, vanilla, butter and milk, and whisk together until just combined.
Stir in the oats and flour until fully combined. Fold in the chocolate chips until mixed in.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Scoop 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, and flip when bubbles are covering the surface of the pancake. Cook the other side until it is golden.
