1 overripe banana
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup (75g) fat free yogurt
1/4 cup water
(water and yogurt can be replaced with 1/2 cup skim milk)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sweetened cocoa powder (20g)
1/2 cup (60g) whole wheat flour (I used whole wheat white)
pinch of powder sugar for presentation (optional)
Mash the banana in a medium bowl. Add the egg, vanilla, yogurt, and water. Whisk until a bit frothy and smooth.
In a smaller bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and cocoa powder. Sift it into the banana mixture. Mix until just blended. It will be thick.
Use a ladle to drop some batter on a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Cook about 1-2 minutes per side; when bubbles form on one side, its time to flip them over.
Drizzle with some powdered sugar, or pancake syrup of your choice, and serve the delicious Chocolate Banana Pancakes with a cup of sizzling hot coffee!
