Banana Pancakes

Your kids will go bananas over these pancakes.  My boys absolutely loved them.  My younger pancake-loving son also loves to make monkey sounds.  For a special 2nd birthday breakfast treat (and with monkey on my mind from planning his birthday party) we enjoyed these chocolate-banana monkey pancakes.  They are easy and entertaining, and they make a healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.  Your kids will most likely have fun creating the monkeys, too.  I used ingredients that we had in our kitchen – Nutella, bananas and peanut butter – but the options are endless as far as pancake flavors, toppings and “edible art” accessories.

{EEE EEE OOH OOH, he’s TWO, he’s TWO!  More monkey birthday party details coming soon!}
