1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup water
1 3/4 cup flour (white or whole wheat)
1/4 cup vegan cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
Optional: 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips and/or 1/3 cup chopped walnuts/pecans (I think adding nuts would be a fantastic touch to this!)
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
Mix bananas, sugar, & vanilla in a mixer.  Add water slowly to the mix.  In a separate bowl, mix all of your dry ingredients together, then pour into the wet banana mix.
spray bread pan, pour it in, and eat the batter … after all, there’s no eggs so why worry about salmonella? :P

Chocolate Banana Pancakes

I make lots of strange meals trying to find quick, healthy things to eat. Tonight’s was a success. 
I’m not even sure what to call it, I was going for a healthy mac’n’cheese kind of thing, but isn’t quite that. It might possibly be better.
Anyway, healthy, creamy, awesome, pasta-y goodness. It makes a really nice amount, but not all of it made it to the picture. You should try it.
1/4 cup whole wheat cous cous boiled with as much water as it will hold
generous garlic powder (or better, fresh garlic!)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup greek style yogurt
generous pinch (~1 tbsp) of shredded cheese
added protein of your choice-I shredded some deli turkey
If you used a stronger tasting cheese (I considered parmesan) you might get a more cheesy flavor and be closer to what I was trying to accomplish, but I thought this was still pretty great.
Add some veggies on the side (I’m probably doing spinach or peas) and you’re set!
The way I prepared it, it’s about 280 calories, 5g of fiber and 22g of protein. Om nom nom.
