Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large, ripe, mashed banana
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg white, oil, vanilla and mashed bananas until smooth.
  3. Gradually combine wet ingredients with the dry and mix well. There will be some lumps so don't over-mix.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled skillet over medium high heat.
  5. There are two ways you can make heart shaped pancakes. The first option is to lightly spray your heart shaped mold with cooking spray and place the mold on the hot skillet and pour 1/4 cup of pancake batter. Add 1 tsp. of chocolate chips in each pancake. When the pancake begins to bubble and the edges begin to set, flip the pancakes. Repeat with the remainder of the batter. The second option is to make regular pancakes and use a cookie cutter to create small or big hearts.
