Who wants a pancake,
Sweet and piping hot?
Good little Grace looks up and says,
"I'll take the one on top."
Who else wants a pancake,
Fresh off the griddle?
Terrible Theresa smiles and says,
"I'll take the one in the middle."

Whole Wheat, Banana, Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I'm re-posting this for Works for Me Wednesday over at Rocks In My Dryer--head on over for more great tips!

YUM! These are so delicious (and really quite healthy) that they don't even need syrup!

Here's what you need:

1/2 c. whole wheat flour (I like King Arthur--it is ground super fine)
1 t. baking powder
healthy pinch of salt

1/2 c. milk
1 egg
1/3 frozen, then thawed banana
1 1/2 t. honey
1 1/2 t. oil

mini chocolate chips

1. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl.
2. Measure 1/2 c. milk in a glass measuring cup.
3. Add the egg, oil and the thawed banana to the milk.
4. Using a fork, mix the egg, banana & oil; pour into dry ingredients.
5. Mix the wet into the dry until just combined.
6. Add the honey to the batter, stir.
7. Ladle batter onto hot, greased griddle.
8. Sprinkle 1 t. mini chocolate chips onto top of pancake.
9. Cook 1-2 minutes, until bubbles form on top.
10. Flip each pancake and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until second side is golden.
11. Butter each pancake as it comes off the griddle.

Serves two, but is quite easy to double, triple or even quadruple! (Even for a non-mathematician like me!)
