Banana Coconut Chocolate Chip Pancakes – light and fluffy pancakes with fresh banana flavor and bursting with bites of coconut. A breakfast that gives a delicious start to the day.
This is pretty much a combination of my favorite 3 breakfast flavors all put together in some delicious pancakes. Seriously, I just adore chocolate and banana everything these days. YUM!
Add coconut to the mix and it’s a match made in heaven for sure. I’ll share a little secret. I’ve never been a pancake fan. Always thought they were boring. Not worth the calories. One of the driest foods I’ve ever eaten, etc.
Add this great little ingredient called banana and all the sudden I love them. That was quite a few months ago. Then I thought, “Why not add some coconut?” Coconut is one of my greatest loves of all time. Especially in the dessert and breakfast worlds. Love the flavor. It’s just phenomenal.
So, now I have another great breakfast to enjoy and I thought maybe you’d enjoy it too. So here it is in all of it’s wonder and delight.
These babies turned this pancake frowner into a pancake smiler.
I’d love to know! Are you a pancake lover or not?
