Have you ever been scrolling through Facebook and happen upon a great looking recipe video? I get a ton of great ideas and inspiration from a lot of the Tasty Vegetarian videos that often have plant-based recipes. But… It seems like I can’t ever find a link for the full recipe! That’s okay though, because here at my house we just make stuff up.
I had happened upon some kid friendly breakfast posts and I’m not even sure that the initial recipe I watched was vegan. My youngest boy is actually allergic to eggs so I’ve been doing egg free dishes for a long, long time. I decided to use a flax egg in this recipe but there are several options on the market for egg replacers. You can also find charts on Google to help you decide which one is most beneficial to the type of recipe you’re doing. I also made this gluten free by using some gluten free Bisquick mix. You can follow the instructions on any old box of pancake mix or make you’re own if you like but I thought it turned out pretty awesome sans the gluten.
I will have a video up on my YouTube channel for all of my visual learning friends if you’d like to check that out you can find it here.
This dish will surely become a Sunday morning favorite at our house. If you try it out be sure to tag me on social media (especially instagram) at @workhardeatkind so that I can cheer you on. Y’all should know by now I will break out those pom poms any time for you guys!
See how easy it is below and most of all I hope you and your family enjoy.
Chocolate Chip & Banana Sheet Pancakes
- 2 Cups of Gluten Free Bisquick
- 2 Cups of Dark Chocolate Almond Milk
- 4 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
- 1 Flax Egg (1 Tbsp Flax Meal to 3 Tbsp Water)
- 2 Ripe Bananas, Sliced
- A Ridiculously Delicious Amount of Chocolate Chips
- Preheat your oven to 350F.
- Add one tablespoon of flax meal to a small bowl with three tablespoons of water. Stir gently and then place in the refrigerator to firm up for about five minutes.
- Add all of the other ingredients to a large mixing bowl. When the flax egg is ready you can add it at the end. Stir until well combined.
- Line a deep baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Pour the pancake batter over the parchment paper and spread it evenly.
- Add the sliced banana’s across the pan then add the chocolate chips.
- Press everything down lightly to make sure everything is in the batter.
- Place in the oven for 20 minutes. You may check often after about 15 minutes to make sure due to oven variability.
- Slice and enjoy.
I listed the ingredients I used and so my outcome is based on these ingredients. I am sure that the outcome could differ if you use eggs, or use regular wheat based flour so be sure to keep an eye on the oven time if you do change things up. You can always stick a tooth pick in it like a cake to test for doneness.
I also think parchment paper was a big helper in the success of this recipe. Please don’t skip out on it if you can help it. It is typically pretty expensive but I found that the roll I bought from Brandless is only $3 and lasts an exceptionally long time.
