Chocolate Banana Pancakes

I make banana bread (click HERE for my yummy recipe) at least once a week for my children. I make it so often I can do it with my eyes closed and one hand tied behind my back. So, when I woke up yesterday and saw the brown bananas on my counter, I decided to try something different! I came up with these banana pancakes- and they were quite good! My husband likes the consistency better when I cube the bananas, but, feel free to mash them if you'd rather! Serve with maple syrup, powdered sugar, sliced bananas on top, walnuts and/or whipped cream! Enjoy!

2 bananas, cut into tiny cubes OR mashed
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 Tbl sugar
2 Tbl canola oil
1 c. flour
2 Tbl wheat germ (optional)
2 Tbl cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c. choco chips

Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Coat pan with a little butter or cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl combine bananas, egg, milk, sugar and oil.  Add flour, wheat germ (if using), cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and stir. Fold in chocolate chips. Scoop 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Flip when the pancake when bubbles start to form and edges look dry. Cook on other side until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter. Enjoy!
