Pancake Waffie!

Waffie is something Joshua and his friend made up in the dining halls in college. You get a waffle, cut it up, pour syrup in a bowl, and dip your waffle bites in syrup using chopsticks.
haha that's it
I was skeptical for awhile, but they took me one day and now I'm a believer.  It's actually quite fun, your pancakes are never soggy, and you get as much syrup on every bite as you'd like.

So today I went for it with these pancakes- which are AMAZING!!!

Banana Cocoa Nib Pancakes:

1 egg
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
2-3 tbs milk
1 tbs butter; melted
few pinches lemon zest
1/4 tsp vanilla bean paste
1/4 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbs sugar
1/4 tsp salt
few tbs cocoa nibs
1 banana; sliced

1    whisk together the egg and yogurt in a medium bowl
2    mix in 2 tbs milk, melted butter, lemon zest, vanilla
3    in a small bowl mix together flours, sugar, powder, and salt
4    mix into wet ingredients, only until incorporated
(if it's still too dry mix in another tbs of milk)
5    melt a little butter in a skillet and plop in a 1/4 cup batter, about 3
      fit in a skillet without touching
6   push in a few banana slices into each pancake and sprinkle some cocoa nibs over each
7   cook 3 minutes over medium-low heat, flip and repeat 3 minutes on other side

  1. Hannah and I were going to go the chopstick challenge and eat everything with chopsticks for a month. It never happened but at least I know I can still eat pancakes.
