8 pancakes


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 medium ripe bananas

  • 1 cup milk

  • 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter

  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, or as needed


  1. Preheat a griddle to medium-low heat according to manufacturer's instructions.

  2. Mix or sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Stir in chocolate chips.

  3. Beat eggs together in a medium bowl. Add bananas to the bowl and mash. Add milk, peanut butter, syrup, and vanilla; stir until well mixed. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir just to incorporate, being careful not to overmix.

  4. Grease the preheated griddle with butter. Working in batches, drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
