Chocolate Chip Plantain Pancakes are made with super ripe plantains and most excellent quality chocolate making them a healthy, uniquely flavorful, breakfast treat. Super ripe plantains make these Chocolate Chip Plantain Pancakes the most moist and flavorful ever.  They’re the perfect Mother’s Day breakfast/brunch, and Mom will love you (even more!) for them.

You can store Chocolate Chip Plantain Pancakes for up to three days in the refrigerator.

I frequently make Plantain Pancakes year round, and made them a lot for Passover, substituting potato starch for the all-purpose-gluten-free-flour. They are hugely popular, super simple to make, and a perfect Passover breakfast dish!
