Ticking Time Bomb Pancakes

Someone in my house is a ticking time bomb. Thanks to her love of refined pasta and cheese, she hasn't pooped in three days. The CW says to dose her liberally with prunes, but she's three, so a modicum of creativity is required. Enter these pancakes: supermoist from the prunes, flavorful from the cocoa. She ate three. (But hasn't pooped yet.)

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
6 large prunes
1 overripe banana
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp wheat germ
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk

Stir together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.

In a blender, process prunes, banana, egg, vanilla, wheat germ and almond milk until smooth. Pour over dry ingredients, whisking gently until just smooth.

Drop batter by the quarter-cup onto a heated griddle and cook as for regular pancakes.
