Oat-y Chocolate Chip Banana PancakesBanana pancakes worth making. I would say they taste a lot better than they look. Translation: unless you hate banana and/or chocolate, these will probably be a huge hit with your tastebuds. So what are you waiting for? Please those suckers now! (See measurement legend at bottom of page, if helpful).
-3/4 C oat flour
-1 1/4 C whole wheat white flour
-2 t baking powder
-1/2 t salt
-1 1/2 C soymilk (or other nondairy variety)
-2 medium bananas, whipped
-3 T brown sugar
Step 1: Whisk dry ingredients together thoroughly. Make this into a well.
Step 2: Blend the bananas in a mini-blender with the soymilk (or just some of the soymilk if all of it doesn't fit).
Step 3: Add the banana-milk and brown sugar as layers inside the dry well (hmm, that sounds odd... but it works!).
Step 4: Fold the wet into dry with the whisk, then mix until most lumps are gone. Make sure to minimize mixing so that some lumps are in fact still there. This will ensure nice air pockets of fluffiness in your final product.
Step 5: Stove it up: On medium-high heat, pour batter into a pan that has been splashed with a teaspoon or two of oil. Make Mickey Mouse shapes if desired. Watch carefully. Nothing brings a frown to the nearest stove-cooked-carb-creation-lover's face quicker than the sight or smell of burnt pancakes.
*Now you add your chocolate chips. My preferred method is to violently throw each morsel into the cooking pancake (pre-flip) and hope it doesn't miss and meet its untimely demise via pan-sizzle or land too intimately close to fellow choco-chips (in other words, a uniform distribution is key). I generally go with about 5 chips per regularly-sized cake. As soon as one throwing's set per cake is completed, I grab the nearest fork and stab them in so that the batter engulfs each one and thus forms a barrier to prevent possible direct pan-chip contact upon flipping.*
Flip when the edges are rather dry, and then before you know it, remove the fully cooked pancake. Tada! You made it! Slaving over a hot stove does pay off!
