Banana and Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Guineo con chispas de chocolate negro (6)                                                                                        I had make banana and chocolate chips pancakes before but they had fatty ingredients and I did not calculate the macros. This new banana and chocolate chip pancakes are trully delicious, spongy, and chocolaty. Since I used whole wheat flour instead of almond flour, it contains less grams of fat. I topped with half of a mashed banana. For the dark chocolate chips, I always use Dove Dark Chocolate Bar because it is less expensive.

I cut them in small pieces and added them to any recipe. I love dark chocolate beacuse besides it is healthy and contains antioxidants and makes me happy (although notlike coffe) it is not too sweet neither too bitter. They are so wet that it is not required to have a syrup, but just in case I decided to make a fark chocolate hot sauce. Simply microwave two dark chocolate squares with 2tbsp of water during 15secs. Then, give it a stir and microwave again for 10secs if needed.
