Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes!” Even typing the words make me drool.  As a huge “pancake breakfast” house, this is a dish that is requested more than frequently….in fact I’d say at least twice a week.  In the past, I used to reserve the dish for the weekend, but now, I more or less have the recipe memorized and can probably make it almost as fast as pouring a bowl of cereal.  To make life easier for you, I jotted down a bunch of options that will still nail down the authenticity of this easy peasy pancake meal.  Basically, just make sure you use some good flour, ripe bananas, a handful of chocolate chips & un-sweetnened apple sauce. Finish them off with a drizzle of maple syrup and that takes care of that!

  1. It’s almost impossible to make pancakes for breakfast in my dorm, but as soon as I get home for the summer I’m going to have to have a pancake palooza! I love that these have both bananas and applesauce in them so I can totally make the argument that they’re healthy! ;)
