Chocolate Banana Pancakes!


Makes 18 servings, 32 calories per serving :)

Although keep in mind, each pancake is pretty small (around 3 inches)

Ingredients:

3/4 cup of Flour

3/4 cup of Skim/Non-fat Milk

2 Egg whites

2 Tbsp of Cocoa (I used Meijers hot cocoa mix which is 36 cals per tbsp!)

2 tbsp of baking powder

1 dash of Salt

1/2 medium Banana

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, egg whites, baking powder, milk, salt and cocoa until smooth

2. Slice the 1/2 a banana into small slices

3. Heat the griddle or frying pan on low heat. (If you decide to use oil, add those calories, I use cooking spray!)

4. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle or pan, use approximately a tablespoon of batter for each pancake. 

5. Add banana slices onto the pancakes as they cook.

6. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Enjoy!
