Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Banana pancakes made even better with the addition of chocolate chips. Ready in no time, and tastes amazing.

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.

  3. Stir in the oats and flour until fully combined. Fold in the chocolate chips until mixed in.
