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 them out.

In my view, the job a pancake or waffle is to be a vehicle for hot maple syrup. I love pouring tawny maple tree sap all over the top,  letting it drip over the sides and saturating my pancakes. And maple syrup pairs so well with bananas, pecans, and chocolate!

Call us hungry—the 2 people at our house can gobble 10 banana chocolate chip pecan pancakes in one sitting. Be sure to double the recipe if you want to feed your family or friends.

Banana Chocolate Chip Pecan Pancakes recipe notes:

  • Mix the dry ingredients the night before, and your pancakes will be on the table even sooner. Keep 2 skillets going at once, and transfer the cooked pancakes to a baking sheet in a warm oven, for hotcakes on deck zippity-do. You even have time to make coffee while they bubble up and brown.
  • To lower the gluten factor, I’ve been adding banana flour to baked goods This unique flour, imported from Africa by WEDO Gluten Free, a Park City Utah company, is made from dried green bananas. Banana flour has a neutral, maybe slightly acidic flavor. Feel free to use all white whole wheat flour.
  • Both tapioca and arrowroot are used to thicken sauces and fruit pies, much like cornstarch, only more nutritious. A tablespoon of either tapioca flour or arrowroot helps bind these vegan pancakes.
  • Likewise, a tablespoon of chia seeds, ground or whole, will thicken pancake batter, particularly when the recipe doesn’t include eggs.
  • Mined in central Utah from an ancient sea bed, natural Real Salt is a delicious flavorful sea salt.
  • Check out these banana waffles–with peanut butter maple syrup from my friend Becky at Vintage Mixer‘s cookbook.
