Banana splits for breakfast? It must be my day.
This hefty stack of pancakes is topped off with all the traditional banana split toppings like bananas, pineapple, strawberries, chocolate sauce, and a cherry for the top.

Banana Split Pancakes
serves 2-3 (10 5” pancakes)
For the chocolate layer:
¼ c. cocoa powder
¼ c. flour
½ c. oat flour
1 egg white
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp sugar
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp vanilla extract
¾ cup milk
dash of salt
For the vanilla layer:
¼ c. flour
½ c. oat flour
1 egg white
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp sugar
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup milk
dash of salt
To top:
2/3 c. plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
1 banana, sliced
¼ c. sliced strawberries
¼ c. sliced pineapple chunks
1 cherry
2 tbsp chocolate sauce
Mix all the vanilla layer ingredients together and all the chocolate layer ingredients together in two separate bowls. Whisk the batters until everything is well incorporated. Preheat a nonstick pancake pan to medium low heat. Scoop ¼ cup of batter at a time onto the pan and spread it out. Cook until the top forms bubbles and starts to dry out. Flip the pancake over and cook the other side until it is golden. Repeat with all the vanilla and chocolate pancakes, making sure the batters do not mix. Allow the pancakes to cool. Spread each pancake with Greek yogurt and stack them on top of each other, alternating between chocolate and vanilla. Top with banana slices, strawberries, and pineapple. Scoop the rest of the yogurt on top and place the cherry in the center. Drizzle the chocolate sauce evenly over everything. Keep the pancakes in the fridge until they are chilled and then enjoy.

And if you just are not feeling pancakes, or you have a hankering for oatmeal, here is another banana split breakfast recipe. I cooled my oats before topping them off, but you can eat yours warm if you want to. And check out my banana split smoothie if you want even more.


Banana Split Oatmeal (3) by Decorated11

Banana Split Oatmeal
1 cup oatmeal
2 cups water, milk, or a mixture of the two
1 banana
½ cup strawberries
½ cup cubed pineapple
½ cup yogurt
2 tbsp chocolate sauce
1 cherry

Combine the liquid and oatmeal. Cook the oatmeal according to the directions on the package. Allow the oatmeal to cool and then refrigerate for an hour.* Cut the banana in half and stick each end out the sides of the oatmeal. Top it with the strawberries, pineapple, yogurt, cherry, and chocolate sauce. Dig in!

*If the thought of cold oatmeal grosses you out, and you would prefer to have it warm, just skip this step.

Summer is off to a good start between the grad parties, banana splits, and beautiful weather. I made this card to send to my dolphin loving friend back in Georgia.
