Vegan and Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Fluffy and sweet banana chocolate chip pancakes are the perfect way to start any day. These pancakes are amazing topped with vegan butter and drizzled with warm maple syrup. Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top to make them even better.
I make pancakes almost every weekend, so I like to try a lot of different flavors. These are one of my family favorites. Whenever you get chocolate for breakfast you know its going to be a good day. These pancakes are kind of like having dessert for breakfast.
This recipe combines two of my favorite things: banana bread and pancakes. The chocolate just puts it over the top! The bananas give the pancakes a nice sweetness without adding a ton of sugar.
I used Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 flour in this recipe, but you can try your favorite gluten free blend. I have found that different blends need different amount of liquid though. If you substitute another blend you may need a little more or a little less milk. You can also used regular unbleached flour in this recipe as well.

For each pancake, spoon about 1/3 cup of batter onto skillet. Cook for several minutes until the surface of pancakes has lots bubbles. Flip with a spatula, and cook until brown on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more.
