Chunky Monkey Pancakes Recipe
This is taken from Dot's Back Inn in Richmond, Va.
*Makes 2 Servings*
Your favorite pancake batter
1/2 Cup chocolate chips
1 Cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
2 bananas peeled
2 Tablespoons butter
Whipped cream for serving
Confectioner's sugar for serving
1. On greased griddle or large skillet, ladle about 1/4 Cup of batter to make a large pancake. Once bubbles begin to appear on the surface, sprinkle half of the chocolate chips and nuts on top of pancake. Flip the pancake when golden brown on the bottom and cook until set. Transfer to plate, and repeat to make another pancake.
2. While the pancakes cook, sprinkle 1/2 tsp or so of cinnamon to taste over the whole bananas. Melt the butter in a small frying pan over medium heat. When foam subsides, place the bananas in the pan and saute, turning until tender.
3. Wrap each banana in a chocolate chip pancake. Garnish with whipped cream and confectioner's sugar and ENJOY!
