Walnut Banana Chocolate Pancakes
This Chunky Monkey Pancakes recipe is amazing, the perfect way to get chocolate in your morning routine. I love these because they are made with homemade pancake mix and tasty mix ins.
Every Saturday morning my husband wakes up before everyone and makes Pancakes. When it was my turn I decided to step up the game and make some fancy pancakes for them. That is when I came up with these Chunky Monkey Pancakes.
My kids loved these pancakes and they know when I am making pancakes I am going to get creative. Homemade pancakes are amazing and fluffy and when I add things to them it just makes them even better!
How to Make Pancakes fluffy
Fresh Ingredients. To have the best fluffy pancakes the most important thing is using fresh ingredients. Old ingredients will give you flat pancakes.
Do NOT over mix. You want those clumps in your pancakes, they are vital to making pancakes fluffy. If you over mix the batter you will end up with tough, unfluffy pancakes.
Don’t flip your pancakes too soon (or too late). When you see the bubbles starting to pop flip that pancake over! Overcooking pancakes will also make them tough and unfluffy.
How to freeze pancakes
Freezing pancakes is so easy. Just cook your pancakes and allow them to cool. Once they are cooled stack into piles of serving size you normally make. We do 3 pancakes per pile. Wrap each pile with plastic wrap and then put all wrapped piles of pancakes into a gallon size freezer bag and place in the freezer.
How to reheat Frozen Pancakes
To reheat the homemade pancakes, remove a frozen pancake stack and heat in the microwave in the plastic wrap for 30-45 seconds depending on your microwave.
There are lots of tasty sides to serve with pancakes for breakfast. Some of our favorites are:
