It's hard to say but with all the snow being dumped across America, we felt it was our patriotic duty to post this recipe before the weekend. This way all you snowed in vegans can make your own fancy brunches at home this Sunday in your warm PJs and slippers. If you're looking for tips to staying warm. I recommend what Dan has named The Burrito Approach. This is where you pull the thickest comforter from your bed and wrap it around you - actually more like a giant crepe so your legs and face show and go about your day. I use this quite often and have never gotten frostbitten or slipped into a hypothermia induced coma. Consider it tested and approved.

Whole Wheat Banana & Chocolate Chip Pancakes
- 1 Ripe Banana (mashed)
- 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 3/4 Cup SoyMilk
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Olive or Hazelnut Oil
- 3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/3 Cup Vegan Chocolate Chips (we get ours at Trader Joe's but there are many vegan chocolate chips out there. You just need to read a few labels)
- Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Heat your always loyal cast iron skillet at a medium heat. Once your skillet is hot, spray with Olive Oil Cooking Spray. Then either pour your Batter into the warm skillet from your pitcher or use your spoon to drop and gently spread your Batter into Pancakes. Once you pour it onto the hot skillet it will start to cook so try to make them the desired size and shape. let your pancake cook until it begins to bubble slightly on the top and the edges begin to look puffed and dry. Then flip the Pancake over and cook the other side. Flip a few more times until the pancake is a nice golden brown. Serve with your favorite syrup or berries* and smile... I mean it's brunch... what's not to smile about.
