5 from 1 reviews

Take a bite of these chocolate chip banana pancakes! Perfectly crisp exteriors with melted chocolate and banana flavor in the center.


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla, optional
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, divided


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, and baking powder.
  2. Make a well in the middle and add the milk, bananas, egg, melted butter, and vanilla -if using. Whisk to combine the wet ingredients, and then begin to whisk the batter from the outside in, until there are no visible lumps.
  3. Heat a griddle to medium (about 350-375F) or a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Use spray, butter, or oil to grease the pan, and pour about 1/4cup of batter per pancake.
  4. Cook for about 2 minutes until the edges are defined and bubbles form in the middle. Flip and continue cooking on the other side for another minute.
  5. Remove from the griddle or pan onto a plate and repeat the process with the remaining pancake batter. Makes about 12 pancakes.
  6. Top with sliced bananas and additional chocolate chips.
