Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup low-fat 1-percent milk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 Large eggs, yolks separated
  • 1/3 cup miniature cinnamon and chocolate morsels
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for greasing
  • 1 Medium banana, sliced
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 teaspoons 100-percent maple syrup

Directions

Step 1
Preheat the griddle to 350 degrees F.
Step 2
Mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Step 3
Mix together the milk, oil and egg yolks in a small bowl, and then add to the flour mixture and stir until smooth.
Step 4
Beat the egg whites in a small bowl on medium-high speed with an electric mixer until stiff. Gently fold into the batter, and then gently fold in the cinnamon and chocolate morsels.
Step 5
Spray a griddle with nonstick cooking spray and heat until hot. Ladle about 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto the hot griddle and cook until the tops are covered with bubbles and the edges look cooked, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Step 6
Top each pancake with 2 to 3 slices of banana and top with 2 teaspoons maple syrup.
