Chocolate-Banana Protein Pancakes

I got this recipe off DailyBurn.com… it was perfect because I had all the ingredients. Don’t you love it when that happens. 🙂

I should have made at least two batches right away because my kids actually wanted to eat these… they never want pancakes, figures! Anyway make a ton and freeze em’ … heat up on a quick rush out the door!
