How to make Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

I remember when I was young going to Lyon’s for breakfast and ordering banana pancakes. I always loved them! However, Jordan would never eat my homemade banana pancakes…until I added chocolate chips.

After years of perfecting my favorite pancake recipe I decided to add bananas and they are a huge hit – even with my daughter!

Banana pancakes are simple and fast to make plus if you add chocolate chips they’re even better. These easy banana pancakes will be the hit of your breakfast table.

Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes - fluffy and sweet and filled with banana and chocolate!

I think banana pancakes are seriously my favorite, but I’m a banana addict. I don’t much like eating them, but I love throwing them in everything from smoothies to bread. And pancakes are my favorite thing to add them to because it’s so easy (and, in my mind, it makes them healthier).

So I added chocolate chips. DUH, gotta even out that “healthier” with chocolate. #truth

Even though Jordan says she hates banana pancakes, I’ve been adding a banana to her Sprinkle Pancakes for years now and she’s never the wiser. But these? These are not “sort-of-banana” pancakes. These babies are like banana bread…in pancake form.

This is my favorite pancake recipe, but I’ve adapted it to be more banana-y by mashing 2 bananas into the batter. I also added some cinnamon because I love cinnamon with my banana anything. Don’t you?

These pancakes are fluffy, light, and full of rich banana flavor. Then I added chocolate because, well. Obviously Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes > Plain Banana Pancakes. I prefer mini chocolate chips but you can use regular. Reduce the amount if you want a less chocolatey pancake.

But if you do that I’m not sure if we can be friends anymore. 😉 And guess what? For “not liking banana pancakes” Jordan ate these for breakfast two days in a row. #momwin

Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes - the perfect breakfast or brunch!

How to make the best banana chocolate chip pancakes:

  • Make sure your bananas are very ripe. I like them almost brown; this makes them sweeter and easier to mash.
  • Mini chocolate chips are my favorite to use because they spread throughout the whole pancake. I feel like I can use less chocolate for a more chocolate to pancake ratio.
  • Yes – 1 full tablespoon of baking powder. No, you don’t taste it. It makes these pancakes SUPER fluffy.
  • You can use any milk – dairy, non-dairy, you like. Almond milk works too!
