Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes

Welcome to Fit Kitchen – where we're sharing healthy, nutrient-dense recipes to compliment an active lifestyle, in-part with Sam Negrin, All Good Health founder & resident LEAF girl.

We're re-working an old childhood favorite into a healthier gluten-free, mostly vegan option--because Sunday morning can still mean sleeping in and pancakes fit into your wellness routine! All you need to do is throw the ingredients into a food processor or high-powered blender, and you're done. This recipe is adapted from 4th & Heart. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup gluten-free oats
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Ghee (we love this Madagascar vanilla bean one!)

Instructions:

  1. Add oats and baking soda to a food processor and blend until it's a flour consistency.
  2. Add the almond milk, maple syrup and banana and blend again. Then fold in dark chocolate chips.
  3. Add 1/2 tbsp ghee to a skillet on medium-high heat. Once warm, pour about 1/3 cup of the batter into the skillet and let cook--flip once soft bubbles form.
  4. Drizzle with maple syrup, adorn with berries, and ENJOY!
