Quinoa Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I kicked motherhood's ass this morning!  Tired of the boxed pancake mixes, I took to the mean streets of Mom blogville and assembled this very easy recipe for a healthier pancake.   This is a very easy, gluten free recipe.  I even ate them guilt free.  Word to the mutha which I guess means word to me.


2 cups of quinoa flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 mashed banana + 1 banana thinly sliced
2 eggs beaten
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp cinamon
1 tsp vanilla


In one bowl, mix your dry ingredients: quinoa flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinamon

In another bowl, beat together your wet ingredients: eggs, mashed banana, milk, honey, vanilla.

Mix wet & dry ingredients together.  If the mixture is too tight, add some milk.

Heat your griddle with real butter.   Cuz life is short and it tastes better and is better for you than nasty Pam spray.   Drop pancakes into hot griddle and top with a few banana slices and 4-5 chololate chips. Cook til they are set and brown.  Flip.  Cook for another minute more. 

Eat hot with syrup!
