chocolate chip banana pancakes

This past weekend was definitely a "sunday morning banana pancakes" type of weekend- I had one perfectly ripe banana looking oh so lonely on the counter, throw in some chocolate chips to keep him company and I was on my way to pure pancake awesomeness. 

Blueberry, strawberry, "buttermilk", banana cinnamon, chocolate chip- pretty much you can throw in whatever you'd like into the batter and 9 times outta 10 they will turn out pretty edible...well except that time I wandered off my normal pancake path and tried a new recipe, it was the first time I actually cried over making pancakes- the recipe called for spelt flour and a few other out of the ordinary ingredients, the pancakes were just plain wrong. Word of advice stick to the basics- they're pancakes people, good, old, trustworthy, comfort in a flapjack, smothered in pure maple gold panny cakes- lets not mess with a good thing.

In our house the undisputed topping of choice is locally made McClures Maple Syrup from Littleton NH and a smearing of earth balance butter; oh and don't forget pancakes trusty sidekick "crispy bacon". 

from scratch pancakes are so simple-

chocolate & banana, flour, sugar, yogurt

toss it in a bowl

 mix it all together- a little lumpy is OK

ladle on a hot griddle- watch for little bubbles, get ready & flip!

 see how easy- pull out your favorite pancake plate and enjoy!
