Low Fat Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes

20 mins (prep 15, cooking 5)
13 ingredients
10-15 servings
These low fat whole wheat banana pancakes are low in calories and fat, but not in taste. If you like, you can add blueberries (I recommend wild blueberries, you can buy them frozen and put them directly into the batter frozen). I haven't tried the pancakes with both blueberries and the cocoa powder, so you may want to remove the cocoa powder from the recipe below if you add blueberries. (New addition: I tried them with double the cocoa and using frozen raspberries and they were even better. I broke the frozen raspberries up into smaller pieces after adding them to the batter.) I've actually never used sugar in this recipe--I've always used Splenda. If you prefer thicker pancakes, you can lessen or eliminate the water in the recipe completely. My kids (5 and 2) like to help with this recipe. I have them each mash one of the bananas, and then pour half of the wet ingredients into each of their bowls to mix. Then, when they're added to the dry ingredients, they each get a turn to mix them into the dry ingredients. Also note: I really like vanilla; if you don't, reduce it to 1/2 tsp. FYI--My wife and I lost 45 lbs each recently, and this is one of the recipes I made regularly during our diet.
