GV comments: These are one of the few pancakes I've tasted that doesn't scream out for syrup. The chocolate chips are one reason, no doubt, because they provide just enough sweetness, especially when combined with the bananas on the side. But the combination of buckwheat flour and coconut also contributes to a self-contained goodness. This is no puffy refined-flour puck begging to be slathered in syrup, but neither is it dense and tasteless. This is a winner!
Timing: Less than 30 minutes, start to finish
Nutrition: Mostly whole food, except for the chocolate chips and maple syrup
