  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup (divided) and more for drizzling on top
  • 1 very ripe banana and a few slices for garnish
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk e.g. rice milk
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips (save a few more to add on top)
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter


  • Roughly chop the walnuts. Add them to a non-stick pan over medium to high heat, add 1 teaspoon of maple syrup and stir for 3-4 minutes until they are toasty and caramelized.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash the peeled banana and add the plant-based milk, 1 teaspoon of maple syrup and coconut oil. Give it a quick whisk. 
  • Add the flour and baking powder. Whisk until incorporated. Add the peanut butter and swirl it around just a bit. Fold in the chocolate chunks and toasted walnuts. Let the batter sit for a few minutes.
  • Spray a flat pan or griddle with oil and heat it up to medium to low heat. Add an ice cream scoop full of pancake batter*. Let it cook until the middle becomes bubbly and the corners set, then flip with a spatula. Let it cook on the other side until done. Repeat for all the pancakes. You should be able to get 8 smallish pancakes out of the batter. 
  • Stack the pancakes, top with banana slices, the rest of the toasted walnuts, chocolate chips and drizzle with maple syrup. Enjoy!


*If the batter spreads too much in the pan, whisk a bit more flour into the batter. If it doesn't spread enough, add a bit more plant-based milk.
