Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Ready for some banana chocolate chip pancakes? One of my favorite gluten-free, grain-free flours is COCONUT FLOUR! Now coconut flour is interesting because it can definitely make something dry if you don’t add enough liquid. So, I tread carefully when I use it. Luckily with years of practice of baking gluten-free goodies, I’m getting a handle for creating ‘baked goods’ recipes! If you know me, you know that’s a huge deal! Yay!

Plus, I love using coconut flour because it’s one of the most affordable gluten-free flours on the market! Seriously! At Trader Joe’s you can get a bag for coconut flour for only $2.99! I’m a sucker for deals.

These pancakes are delicious with no added refined sugars, but using natural sugars from the banana and the chocolate chips. Delicious. Real. Ingredients. I’m also a sucker for banana + chocolate chips. These pancakes are so good that if you have someone struggling to “eat healthy” because they don’t like the “healthy versions” of their favorite foods – well this recipe is awesome! It’s hard to tell the difference between this recipe & a regular pancake recipe (or boxed pancake mix) that doesn’t have the best ingredients! YES!
