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.
