Whole-Wheat Cinnamon Chocolate Pancakes

By Deen Brothers


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 15 min

Cook time: 20 min

Servings: 10 servings



  • 3/4 cup 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
  • 1/3 cup miniature cinnamon and chocolate morsels
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 teaspoons 100-percent maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix together the flours, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl.

Mix together the milk, oil and egg yolks in a small bowl, and then add to the flour mixture and stir until smooth.

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.

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.

Top each pancake with 2 to 3 slices of banana and top with 2 teaspoons maple syrup.
