Banana Chocolate Chip Panckaes w/ Maple & PB Syrup

I planned on making this recipe earlier this week, but we only had 1 banana left & I needed two for the recipe. I got around to finally trying this recipe out this morning and my kids & I loved it! It was delicious & full of flavor.

Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Peanut Butter Syrup

1 1/2 C flour
3 Tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 C buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbs canola oil
1 large egg
2 small-med ripe bananas
1/4 C mini chocolate chips (or reg. chips roughly chopped) tossed with 2 tsp flour
Cooking Spray or butter for pan
1 C maple syrup
1/2 C peanut butter
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl and whisk together. In a separate bowl combine buttermilk, eggs, oil, and vanilla and whisk well. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix just until moistened and combined. Place bananas in a bowl and roughly mash with a fork. Fold into batter. Add the chocolate chips that have been tossed with flour and stir.
For syrup, heat peanut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. Add maple syrup and gently whisk to combine. Heat in the microwave for another 30 seconds, whisk, and then set aside.
Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet to medium heat. Coat pan with little butter and then pour on pancake batter. Use 1/4 C batter for large pancakes (4-6") and 2 T for kid-sized ones (2-3"). Wait until bubbles form and edges are set and then flip.Reheat syrup if necessary and pour over warm pancakes


  1. Did the kids like the syrup? I love PB on my waffle with bananas, maybe I will give this a try but in a waffle form.

  2. Preston doesn't like syrup on his pancakes so he didn't want to try it. Noah on the other hand loved it & even came back for seconds along with me! :) Waffles would be great too!

  3. Did you know that if you have a recipe that you know you will want to use bananas in, but aren't sure that 1)your bananas will make until you can make the recipe or 2)that there will be any left to make the recipe with that you can peel and freeze your bananas and take them out and thaw and use as you regularly would in any recipe where the visual aspect is not a factor. Also, you can leave them frozen when making smoothies and you don't have to add ice for thickening. Just thought I'd share a couple tips I learned this summer. :D
