The weekend called. It wants these Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Peanut Butter Syrup!

A FEW THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

  • Don’t overmix the batter! It’s okay if there are still lumps after you’re done mixing.
  • Originally, I made these pancakes several years ago with chopped up Reese’s cups in the batter instead of chocolate chips. I switched up the recipe to make it a little more achievable using basic pantry items, but if you have Reese’s cups on hand– throw ’em in too!
  • Of course, I always, always recommend using real maple syrup! But if you don’t have any, that’s okay. Table syrup works fine too.

  5. Oh, peanut butter banana pancakes, how I love thee. Totally making these.

    And my dad totally thinks I’m a communist (I, also, am not.) I like to tease him and say Jordan is probably going to apply to Berkley. He shudders, I laugh.

  6. oh my…I am so glad that you were able to whip these delicious looking things up in the midst of political fever and the disappointment of Captain America not getting the girl. Really, what’s up with that? He is Captain America!

  7. I love the peanut butter/banana theme on here and Crazy for Crust! Two great recipes!!

  8. Banana….. My number 1 comfort food :D

  9. There isn’t a whole lot that I love more than peanut butter and banana! I love that combo in pancakes a lot:-) And I was not happy at the end of Capt. America when he had to leave the girl behind…fail!!!

  10. Good one for day after Halloween, right?! Delish idea!

  11. These are amazing! I love the peanut butter banana combination, especially for breakfast!

  12. my facebook is bombarded with political rants. It’s quite bothersome, especially to those with their own opinions. Geez! I hate this time too Ashton. As I sit here braving hurricane sandy – hitting us later today!!- I am in desperate need of a comforting brunch like this. who knows when i’ll be able to use my stove again! YUM!

  13. My kids will love me if I suggest these for breakfast on the weekend. I will probably love myself too! These sound so yummy. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Hahaha… I love the post. I feel the same about politics. These pancakes look incredible!

  16. I made these this morning and they were really runny. Any suggestions?

    • grrrrr… I just made them last week too, and had the same problem. They weren’t like the first time I made them at all! I mean, all I had to do was add more flour and they were completely perfect, but I’m so bugged that this recipe has been up like this for so long and I didn’t know! I don’t know where the error came from! Anyway, I’m just going in to adjust the recipe right now. So sorry you had a bad batch!

  17. Oh yes, they look incredible! Pinned!

  18. These look great, but I’d totally make a peanut butter sauce to pour over top! Yummy!
