Before you continue to read this post, I want you to listen to this song, if you can. Obviously if you're at work or don't have computer speakers or you have some other amazing excuse, I will forgive you for not listening to this song while you read. But if possible, please listen, it's worth it.
There, now that we have you listening to pure awesomeness, I can continue to talk about eating pure awesomeness. Okay, my banana pancakes weren't as amazing as Jack Johnson but really, how can I compete?
Onto the pancakes. Ever since going gluten-free back in December (has it really been that long???), I've been on the look out for truly amazing pancakes. I have yet to find any that fit the bill each time I make them. I did find one decent recipe that works most of the time but occasionally, it just flops. Which is sad because I love pancakes. But then again, if you put enough fruit and maple syrup on them, they'll taste decent no matter what.
But last week, I think I found the perfect pancake. Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes, to be exact.
Let me just say, that I think this is my new go to recipe. The only tweak I plan on making to it is not adding the chocolate chips next time. You say "what?!?!" Let me explain. Imagine a sweet pancake (it has a banana in it after all), with sugary chocolate chips (I didn't have any dark ones, just my GF/DF ones), smothered in maple syrup. It turns out WAY too sweet. So the plan next time is to eliminate the chocolate chips.
I recommend trying these, especially if you're gluten-free and dairy-free. And if you aren't, at least try banana pancakes once in your life. Dan doesn't like bananas but he liked these pancakes, so they are totally worth a shot!
But be sure to listen to Jack Johnson's Banana Pancakes song while making them. And eating them.
