Pumpkin Banana Pancakes { with yummy add ins + toppings! }

Something about the weekends scream PANCAKES. I remember always getting pancakes on the weekends with the family. Short stack with chocolate chips! Although I have pancake mix in house, I wanted to try something different and more healthified, while still tasting great! I think I found a fall healthy classic to have during this time of year. It’s pumpkin related, light, filling & the adds in of chocolate and warmed peanut butter and yogurt….. stole the show. : )
MMMM look at that PEANUT BUTTER! 

Chocolate Chip Pancakes  – 

  • -1 medium banana,  // slightly warmed and mashed
  • -1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  •  1 egg
  • 3 tbsp vanilla protein powder // i used shakeology
  • dash of vanilla + cinnamon for taste
  •  1 tbsp melted peanut butter  // this is a must ;-)
  •  few dollops of greek yogurt
  • chocolate chips

Directions –

  • Slightly warm the banana in bowl in microwave for about 20 seconds then mash a with fork
  • Add in all other ingredients and mix until combined { EXPECT:  peanut butter + yogurt — those are your toppings! }
  • Heat skillet with a little cooking spray, I like to use coconut oil.
  • Pour batter into pan – cook 3 MINI ones at time. This recipe works best with 6 mini pancakes : )
  • While that side is being cooked, melt your  1 tbsp of peanut butter in microwave  ** I of course used the pumpkin spice one **
  • Cook until slightly browned  & you see bubbles form. Flip to the other side and cook until done
  • Pour melted peanut butter and top with a  few dollops of yogurt.. eat and enjoy <3
  • Note: 6 mini serves one- can easily double it up!

I guess you could say my fall collection is starting to … build! I am happy about it ;-)
I love new things but also refer back to old pumpkin and breakfast items too! >> I see these bad boys in my near future! AH.
OR make banana bread french toast. Gosh I love weekend breakfasts!

What else should I make!?! I wanna know! :-D
