I topped mine with crushed candy canes which is optional but recommended because it’s fun and festive! If you’re a mint chocolate chip fan, these pancakes will be a favorite for you. Just enough peppermint flavor without being overwhelming!

Recipe Tips:

When you mash the banana for these peppermint mocha pancakes, leave it a little chunky. Leaving the banana chunky allows the pancakes to have some texture!

Also, you can sub chocolate protein powder for the unsweetened cocoa powder. It gives them a great flavor and it doesn’t change the texture!

Make sure you grease your pan before making the pancakes so they don’t stick. Nothing worse than going to flip the pancakes and it makes a total mess everywhere!
