Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Pancakes
- 1 1/2 cups vegan pancake mix like Follow Your Heart or Bisquick
- 1 cup plain unsweetened almond milk or plant milk of choice
- 2 large ripe bananas
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup walnut pieces
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
- maple syrup
- extra walnut pieces and vegan chocolate chips for garnish
- Slice 1 banana into a large mixing bowl and mash with the back of a fork until a chunky stir-able paste forms.
- Add cinnamon, almond milk, and pancake mix and stir together until a thick batter forms. There should still be some lumps in the batter from the mashed banana. Add walnut pieces and chocolate chips and fold into batter until evenly distributed.
- Heat a skillet or griddle to medium high and coat with an even layer of cooking oil spray or vegan butter. Ladle approximately ⅓ cup portions of batter onto the cooking surface. Allow to cook for 3-4 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes and they begin to appear dry around the edges. Flip pancakes, cooking for an additional 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Top with more banana slices, walnut pieces, and vegan chocolate chips and serve with a generous drizzle of maple syrup.
