To some, spring break is a crazy vacation. To others, it is time to focus on their job instead of school. My dream spring break day came true…

12 hours of sleep…

Yes!

So, what should I do now that I have more than double the amount of sleep I get on a typical day? Make pancakes!

Opened the windows, sun beaming in the kitchen…the fun began!

Whole Wheat Vegan Snicker-Doodle Dark Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes

Don’t let the name overwhelm you, their delicious!!

These pancakes adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie.

But, I could couldn’t resist not adding in banana or chocolate chips…or syrup :)

*Makes approximately 4 pancakes

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 packet granulated stevia
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 ripe banana (optional)
  • 1 TBS dark chocolate chips
  • **more stevia and cinnamon to mix as stevia cinnamon (cinnamon sugar) for topping!
  • **Grade A maple syrup to drizzle on top

Mix all of the ingredients except the banana slices. Spray pan with oil.  As you pour the batter in the pan, place the slices of banana into the pancakes. Make sure to press down the pancakes with a spatula so they cook all the way through. ENJOY :)
