2 pancakes each


  • 1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour

  • 2 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • cup low-fat milk

  • ½ cup mashed ripe banana

  • ½ cup light maple-flavor syrup

  • 2 ounce semisweet chocolate, finely chopped

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • Light butter (optional)

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries


  1. In a medium bowl stir together whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl combine egg, milk, mashed banana, and 1 tablespoon of the syrup. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). Fold in chocolate.

  2. Coat a nonstick griddle or heavy skillet with cooking spray; heat griddle over medium heat. For each pancake, pour ¼ cup of the batter onto hot griddle; spread if necessary. Cook about 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden. Turn over when surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry.

  3. In a small saucepan heat the remaining syrup until warm. Serve warm pancakes with syrup and, if desired, butter. Top with raspberries.
