Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pancakes

20 Mar

IMG_4279Recently I’ve been craving a big stack of pancakes. You know, the kind you order at a diner at one in the morning where the pancakes are as large as the plate they’re served in. My cravings turned into a reality this week when I stumbled upon Minimalist Baker’s recipe for Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes. IMG_4259

  • 1 very ripe medium banana
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 flax egg
  • pinch salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil (or coconut oil)
  • 3 Tablespoons almond milk (or sub other milk)
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup whole wheat or unbleached flour
  • 3 Tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips

I substituted the flaxmeal egg with a real egg and the almond butter for unsalted butter simply because that was what I had in my refrigerator.

The banana/chocolate ratio is right on point and they are a non-guilty way to start your day. Check out Minimalist Baker’s website today for some more delicious treats. IMG_4278

    Glad you mentioned your substitutions – I have no idea what a flax egg is. 🙂

      I had no clue what a flax egg was either, but luckily Minimalist Baker explained it (a combination of flax meal and water). You learn something new everyday!
