recipe from chicago mom source

INGREDIENTS
  1. 3/4-cup milk
  2. 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  3. 1 cup flour (you can use whole wheat flour, but add a little extra milk if you do­, about 2-3 tbsp.).
  4. 2 tablespoons white sugar
  5. 1 tsp baking soda
  6. ½ tsp baking soda
  7. ½ tsp salt
  8. 1 tsp. vanilla
  9. 1 egg
  10. 1 tbsp melted butter
  11. ¾ cup slow cooking oats
  12. 1 banana, sliced
  13. ¾ cup chocolate chip cookies
  14. Non-stick cooking spray or butter (to coat pan)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. 1. Place milk and vinegar in a large mixing bowl and let the milk “sour” for 5-10 minutes.
  2. 2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
  3. 3. Whisk the egg, vanilla and butter together and add to soured milk. Pour the entire flour mixture into the soured milk mixture a little at a time. Mix well until batter is smooth and there are no lumps. (Mixture will bubble up a bit, and that’s ok, it means your pancakes will be fluffy!).
  4. 4. Fold in oats, chocolate chips and banana slices.
  5. 5. Heat a large skillet and coat with non-stick cooking spray or butter. Use a measuring cup (1/4 cup usually works best) to pour batter onto skillet. Cook until you start to see bubbles form in the pancake and then flip and brown the other side.
  6. 6. Garnish with a few extra chocolate chips and bananas on top and serve with your favorite maple syrup.
