 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pancakes

I absolutely love making fun pancake creations for my boys, especially on holidays or their birthdays.  My 6-year-old had been begging for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles birthday party for months and he had his cake all planned out.  But I wanted to surprise him with a fun breakfast so these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Pancakes are what he got and they were a hit!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pancakes

Ingredients needed:

  • Favorite pancake mix
  • Green and Red food coloring
  • Banana
  • Chocolate chips
  • Whipped Cream

These Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pancakes (say that 10 times fast) are as easy to make as they look.

Divide your favorite prepared pancake mix into two bowls.  Add green food coloring to one and red food coloring to the other until you get your desired shade of red and green.

This next part is just a little bit tricky but you just have to be quick at getting the batter down at the same time so they cook evenly.  Make a round pancake with the green batter and then spoon the red batter over the top to form the mask.  I also went over a little bit on the side to look like the tie.  Mine smooshed together a bit as you can see in the picture below so I just cut it off and put it on the side of the pancake to look like the ties.

For the eyes, cut to slices of bananas and place a chocolate chip in the center.  Then you can get creative with the mouth.  We used whipped cream to make a side grin but my 6-year-old had fun eating off the mouth and then making new and different ones over and over again.
