I have actually made something similar to this before and called them "chunky monkey" or "Curious George" pancakes. But they are really sweet for breakfast so it's not something I do often. Like only once a year. But they are SOOO good!
Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Peanut Butter Pancake Syrup
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 Tbsp oil
1/2 cup milk, plus more to get to desired consistency
1 ripe banana, mashed with fork
Handful of mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup pancake syrup
For syrup: Heat peanut butter for one minute. Add syrup and mix.
For Pancakes: Mix four, baking powder, salt, oil, egg and milk together with whisk. Add milk to get to desired consistency. Add in banana and chocolate chips. Use a 1/4 measuring cup and pour onto a medium heated griddle. Flip after about 3 minutes or when your pancakes look like this:
They should look like this:
Take off griddle after a couple more minutes. Or you can always use a tablespoon and make dippers!
Either way you can't go wrong!
Place any leftovers in a single layer on a pan and freeze for 30 minutes (or longer). Place in a freezer bag and freeze until you need them. I put mine in the toaster to reheat but you can use a microwave or toaster oven.
Happy Birthday little man! Can't believe how far you've come in five years!
