Banana-rama Pancakes!

Updated: Jan 22, 2021

The ULTIMATE pancake breakfast, inspired one of my favorite TV shows.

Season 3 of "Cobra Kai" is out! It was originally set to release January 8th, but they moved it up to New Year's Day! I'm really excited, if you can't tell already.

Cobra Kai recently made its way to Netflix. Ever seen "The Karate Kid"? With Mr. Miyagi and Daniel LaRusso against John Kreese and Johnny Lawrence from the "evil" dojo, Cobra Kai? The new series, appropriately named "Cobra Kai", is a continuation of that same story, except now, Daniel and Johnny are all grown up with their own families. They even got the same actors to play the part! Pretty awesome, right?

So, I thought, why not celebrate with an adaptation of Daniel's famous banana-rama pancakes that the whole family loves? They're mentioned a few times in some of the episodes, and...... well, I also wanted a pancake breakfast.

These banana pancakes, like my vegan banana pancakes, are moist, sweet, and delicious for breakfast(or any time of the day, really). Even better, they're loaded with chocolate chips and topped with delicious creamy peanut butter. Who doesn't like that?

Ohhhhhh...just look at those gooey chocolate chips!

Something tells me there's a stack of pancakes in my future.


Bananarama Pancakes

Cuisine: American

Course: Breakfast

Author: Prachi Marfatia

Serves: 2


1 1/2 cups pancake mix or buttermilk pancake dry ingredients

Pinch of salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon

Grated nutmeg(optional)

1 tsp vanilla extract(optional)

1 egg

1/4 cup yogurt

1/4-1/2 cup water

2 bananas, mashed(by hand or in a blender)

a handful of chocolate chips(or as many as you like!)


Mix the dry ingredients together(pancake mix, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg). Add in the egg yolk only, mashed banana, yogurt, and water. Then pour in the vanilla, if using, and stir to combine. Heat a pan on medium heat and grease lightly with around 1/4 tsp oil(sesame works best). Dump a ladleful of batter on(you might need to spread it a little). Now, add chocolate chips by hand on top, and try to bury them inside the batter so you can't see them from above. This will ensure that they don't stick to the pan. Keep a close eye on these! Flip after about one minute, max 2. Repeat on the other side, then pile up onto a plate, slather with peanut butter, drizzle maple syrup(maybe even whipped cream?), and be transported to food heaven:)
