There’s a party in my tummy! So yummy! So yummy!

My daughter has become OBSESSED with Yo Gabba Gabba. For two years I have shielded her from the brightly colored, melodic craziness that is Gabba Land. Then it happened, we were over at my cousin’s house, and Yo Gabba Gabba was flipped on. Since then, it’s been asked for daily.

She has learned the song that is the title of this entry by heart, resulting in my own begrudging admission that the show CAN be pretty darn cute. My husband likes it and especially enjoys some of the guest appearances. The Roots singing about family is his favorite.

This morning, I made Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes and I was beyond tickled to hear Ella Grace start singing that there was a party in her tummy as she gobbled them down.

Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes


  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 Tbs Baking Powder
  • 3 Tbs White Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 Large Ripe Banana
  • Chocolate Chips (we like the mini semi sweet morsels)


  1. In a small bowl, mash the banana with a spoon until it’s the consistency of thick baby food. The occasional chunk doesn’t bother me, if you think it will bother you, toss the whole thing in a blender and puree.
  2. In large bowl mix flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  3. Add in banana, milk, and egg and mix until thoroughly blended.
  4. Add chocolate chips to taste.
  5. Your griddle should be heated to a little over medium high and I like to spray with a touch of PAM to keep these from sticking.
  6. I use an ice cream scoop to measure out the batter . Pour on griddle and cook until most of the pancake is covered in bubbles, then flip. (It will look really thin when you pour it on, but the baking powder will puff these pancakes nicely so don’t worry!)
  7. Top with a dab of butter and syrup if you like and, enjoy the party in your tummy!!
