Chunky Monkey Pancakes

As a special occasion breakfast this weekend I decided to make pancakes from scratch for Sean and Pat. These pancakes have banana, chocolate chips and pecans. They were very filling and delicious!

Mix 1 cup of flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl mix 3/4 cup milk, 3 tbs melted butter, 2 eggs, 1 tbs sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet. Stir to combine, but do not over mix.

When batter has been mixed fold in 1 diced banana, 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup chopped pecans. Heat a skillet on medium heat and pour 1/4 cup of batter at a time into the pan. Cook until bubbles appear at the top, then flip and cook until the other side is brown.

These worked well with a lite syrup and whipped cream. They would also be good with powdered sugar or butter pecan syrup.

About annsley423

I work in Boston at an online retail company called Wayfair.com. I work within the Order Processing department, trying to stop fraudulent orders among other tasks. My company has a large catalogue of kitchen items, which has been both helpful (to my cooking) and detrimental (to my wallet). I am a self taught cook, learning mostly from watching cooking shows and doing trial and error within my own kitchen. I am making this blog as a way to share ideas and successes, as well as curb boredom in my small apartment. In my spare time besides cooking, I like to read, take pictures and have fun with my friends. I am also trying to learn more about wine and hopefully that will eventually be incorporated within the blog as well.
