These Banana Chocolate Orange Pancakes totally happened by accident. I’ve been wanting to put some more pancakes recipes up on the blog for a while, but I’ve just been really busy with other things – school baking, appointments and everything else that can keep you from doing what’s on the dreaded to-do list. I started out my morning with really good intentions of making three different recipes, but as most busy mornings can be, things just didn’t turn out that way. As I was mixing up three different batters my front door opened and in came running, three of my seven grandchildren – surprise Grammie! After a few minutes of talking about their week at school they noticed I had the griddle out for pancakes. This is when the fun began!

After much deliberation between the three grandchildren they decided on what kind of pancakes “we” were going to make, and this is when our Banana Chocolate Orange Pancakes were created! Each one of them picked out the ingredient that they wanted to add to the mix – Mason picked chocolate, Ethan picked orange and my Patience, she picked banana, and all these ingredients were mixed together. Now you may think this is a weird combination for pancakes, I know I was a little skeptical about it myself, but let me tell you something – these are totally delicious and I am really shocked! They were some of the best pancakes I’ve tasted. I am very proud of my creators and thought It would be a great idea to add this delicious recipe for Banana Chocolate Orange Pancakes to my blog. Compliments of Mason, Ethan and Patience – my wonderfully creative grandchildren.

    • Thank Shadi! I so enjoying being in the kitchen with my grandchildren teaching them some of the things I learned from my mother and grandmother while growing up. I’m a firm believer in bringing everyone into the kitchen.

  1. Such a cute story! I used to love baking with my younger brothers and our process sounded a lot like this. It’s always fun to see how things turn out and even better when it works out! Love the recipe too btw – my husband it obsessed with chocolate orange so these are right up our ally!

    • Thanks Sarah, I really enjoy cooking with my grandchildren. It’s a great way to pass on generations of recipes.

    • I know! Who would of thought these things would go together so well. These pancakes are at this moment their favorite.

  2. Oh my gosh, I just LOVE that this wonderful flavour combo was created by your grandchildren – that’s such a great idea to get them to pick a flavour each. Luckily they came up with a really yummy sounding mix of flavours.
    They look wonderful

  3. That is so cute that your grandkids came up with the flavors for these! And they did a spot on job, because chocolate, orange and banana not only go perfectly in pancakes, but also they are amazing together! These look so perfect!

    • Thank you Farida! I was a little skeptical myself, but my grandchildren were positive they would be delicious, and they were correct.

  4. I LOVE the orange, almond, and bananas all in these pancakes!! What great flavor combos – adding it to my weekend must make list!
