The diced banana and buttery pecans bring in plenty of sweet without refined sugar. The chocolate chips are a heavenly addition, but if you want, leave the chocolate in the pantry.

The way I see it, the job of pancakes and waffles is to be a vehicle for hot maple syrup. Fell free to pour the tawny maple tree sap all over your pancakes, letting the lucious syrup drip over the sides and saturate your pancakes.

Call us hungry—the 2 people at our house can gobble 10 banana chocolate chip pecan pancakes for weekend brunch. You’ll want to double this recipe if you want to feed your family and friends too.

Banana Chocolate Chip Pecan Pancakes recipe notes:

  • So your pancakes can be on the table quicker, mix the dry ingredients the night before.
  • Keep 2 skillets going at once, and transfer the cooked pancakes to a baking sheet in a warm oven, that way you won’t be stuck at the stove while everyone at the table enjoying, either that or letting their cakes get cold.
  • A tablespoon of either tapioca flour or arrowroot is there to help bind these vegan pancakes. (Both tapioca and arrowroot are used to thicken sauces and fruit pies, much like cornstarch, only more nutritious.)
  • Likewise, a tablespoon of chia seeds, ground or whole (affiliate link), is there to make the pancake batter a little thicker.
