Caterpillar Pancakes

Maddy asked for chocolate chip pancakes this morning, so I decided to make it fun. I sliced up some bananas to go with it.

  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 3/4 c whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 c milk, warmed 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • Toppings (I used bananas, miniature chocolate chips and syrup)

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Sift the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour and baking powder together in a medium bowl.  

Whisk together the butter, milk, egg and sugar.  Slowly whisk the flour mixture into the egg mixture, until just incorporated.  

Drop the batter into the skillet by 1/4 cups.  Cook on both sides until golden brown.

Serve topped with your favorite toppings.
