Chunky Monkey Pancakes

Congratulations to Samantha (#161), the winner of our Summer iPod Shuffle Giveaway!  Samantha has been contacted by email and will soon be enjoying her playlist favorite Matchbox 20!  Thanks to all who entered.

Summer is a magical time for fun and family- including family breakfast.  It’s always a good day to wake up to pancakes, right?   These Chunky Monkey Pancakes are loaded with bananas and chocolate chips – YUM; a perfect way to celebrate the last day of school, the first day of summer, or maybe just because the sun came up this morning!  Whatever your reason for making pancakes, these will definitely earn you the “I love my Mom” award! 😉


Chunky Monkey Pancakes


1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
 3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 eggs
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large banana, diced (more for garnish if desired)
1/3  cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
cooking spray or additional butter for pan

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.  Set bowl aside.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the skim milk, melted butter, eggs, sugar, and vanilla.  Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients, being careful not to over mix the batter.  Gently fold in the banana, chocolate chips, and nuts if adding.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray or butter. Pour by 1/3 cup of batter onto the skillet and cook until edges are brown and the surface is bubbly. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.

Makes approx. 8 pancakes
