single lady pancake

Sometimes you just gotta have a pancake.
My little boy (the one in my belly) is craving some breakfast food during this pregnancy.
But, I have a husband that doesn't really care for:
a) sweets
b) breakfast for dinner
c) sweet breakfast for dinner

So, you gotta make things work.
I make him a grilled chicken breast with wild rice and sauteed veggies.
I make me a single lady pancake.

And we both win.

Single Lady Pancake
Makes 1 large, plate-sized pancake.
From Joy the Baker!
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon dried oats (quick cooking or regular)
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk 
Dash of vanilla extract
Small handful semi sweet chocolate chips
15 banana slices
Toasted pecans

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a separate bowl whisk together oil, vanilla extract and buttermilk.  Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir to combine.  The mixture will be thick.  Fold in the chocolate chips and half of the banana slices.
Heat a small frying pan with a teaspoon of oil.  Pour in the pancake batter and spread some with the back of a spoon.  Cook over medium heat until bubbles form and pop on the surface of the pancake.
Flip. Cook until golden brown.  Remove from pan and onto a plate.  Top with the remaining banana slices, toasted pecans and maple syrup.  Enjoy yourself!
