    Serves: 9 

    • 125g plain flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 180ml skimmed milk
    • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 2 eggs

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Combine flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt in a large bowl. Set bowl aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the skimmed milk, melted butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and stir in the wet ingredients, being careful not to over-mix the batter. Gently fold in the banana, chocolate chips and nuts.
    2. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat, and lightly coat with oil. Pour 4 tablespoons (60ml) worth of batter onto the pan, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.

    i think it was great it worked really well for me  -  10 Dec 2015


    These were great, probably would make again for the kids but not my husband and I. My youngest inhaled this but my husband and I thought they were a bit rich. I liked the combination of the banana and pecans, just thought the chocolate took it over the top. I did follow another reviewers advice and add another small chopped banana and used buttermilk. Again, another reviewer had it on the money that this recipe is a true kid pleaser.  -  01 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were amazing! I made these for breakfast this morning. My kids inhaled them! Even my neighbors son came in and devoured 2. I didn't change a thing. They are perfect as is. I have been looking for a good banana pancake recipe and my hubby has been looking for a choc chip pancake recipe and this is perfect! Thank you so much for this recipe.  -  28 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
