Introduction: Banana Split Pancakes

Picture of Banana Split Pancakes

Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry flavored pancakes make up this themed stack.

The recipe incorporates the healthier parts of a banana split (fruit and nuts) and purposely avoids getting into chocolate syrup, caramel or marshmallow. I'm trying to stay breakfast/brunchy rather than all out dessert. But one could go crazy and add more toppings, or types of pancakes. If anyone figures out how to make a marshmallow pancake, let me know!

Enjoy!

What an awesome idea!

I think for the 'marshmallow pancake' you should just do some thin homemade marshmallows, and cut them out into pancake-sized circles. That should do nicely.
