Heat a skillet or sauce pan over medium heat. Add the butter and once it starts to melt add the brown sugar and cinnamon.
Stir and continue to heat just until the mixture starts to bubble around the edges. Once this happens, the brown sugar should look like it has dissolved. Turn off the heat and remove from burner. Add the bananas and stir gently until they are well coated. Set them aside while you make your pancakes.
To make the pancakes you can use basic pancake recipe here, or use your favorite recipe or boxed mix.
Serve the bananas over the pancakes with whipped cream and chocolate chips if desired.
