Banana and chocolate for breakfast? With these Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes, you wish that breakfast time is three times a day. Super fluffy and pillowy. With whole banana chunks in it.
Chop bananas into small chunks and sprinkle with cinnamon. Stir to combine and set aside.
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a big mixing bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together egg, milk, heavy cream, and vanilla* by hand until combined.
Make a well in the flour and pour the egg mixture and the melted butter in the middle. Beginning from the middle to the edges, whisk continuously until smooth, and no lumps remain. Fold in bananas and chocolate chips.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Use about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of batter per pancake. Depending on which size you prefer. Cook until little bubbles form on the surface, flip and continue to cook until pancake is browned. Repeat until you are running out of batter. Serve immediately with syrup, bananas, whipping cream, or chocolate chips on top.
*First, cut off the straight end of the vanilla bean. Then place the tip of your sharp knife below the curled end and cut the vanilla bean through the middle of the bean lengthwise. Although you don't need to cut it all the way through, it's ok when you do so. Then open the vanilla bean and scrape out the flavorful seeds with the back of your knife. Then just use the seeds.
