Happy weekend! This week flew by for me because I was preparing for a work event taking place next week. My busy week resulted in a lack of blog posts but I just made some yummy pancakes that I thought I would share with you.

I love the weekends because I have time to make a better breakfast than I do during the week. What’s your favorite weekend breakfast? This morning I threw together some Whole Wheat Banana and Dark Chocolate  Pancakes – that’s a mouthful!

I wasn’t sure how they’d come out because the batter was fluffier than I expected but they turned out nice and tasty! I didn’t notice a difference in flavor by using whole wheat flour vs. all-purpose which was a bonus, because whole wheat is much healthier. And, the addition of dark chocolate chips adds some yummy antioxidants. 

Whole Wheat Banana and Dark Chocolate Pancakes

Makes 3-4 pancakes


1/2 c. whole wheat flour

1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. salt

1/2 egg, beaten

1/2 c. skim milk

1 Tbsp. canola oil


1. Mix the dry ingredients until well blender. 

2. Add the wet ingredients in a separate bowl and mix well.

3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well. The batter will be fluffy.

4. Grease a skillet and add about 1/4 c. of batter for each pancake.

5. Once the batter is on the skillet, add sliced bananas and dark chocolate chips.

6. Cook pancakes for about 3 minutes on each side.

7. Enjoy!
