These were alright. Of all the pancakes I've eaten (and I've had a fair share in my lifetime lol!), these aren't top on my "favorites" list. The texture was not to my liking at all, but then again, (as the title implies) these ARE CHUNKY monkey pancakes. If you like bananas, nuts and chocolate (and a chunky texture), you'll LOVE these. Admittedly, I enjoy all of these ingredients, but not in pancake form. I guess I'm a traditionalist at heart.... :) I might give these another try, but will definitely omit the nuts (I'd use as garnish instead), MASH my bananas (as opposed to dicing them) and substitute peanut butter swirl morsels for the chocolate chips called for (there's just something INTOXICATING about the combo of chocolate, PB and banana together). A drizzle of maple syrup and Hershey's chocolate sauce made for a decadently sweet treat. If for nothing else, I was at least able to enjoy breakfast for dinner, something I don't do often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, CCL! :-)
