Author Notes

The delicate, pale green hue of these pancakes is simply delightful. A hint of herbal bitterness from the matcha pairs surprisingly well with the banana, while a dash of cardamom adds complexity. As always, butter and honey are a must, but if you can get your hands on some, tahini will take this pancake stack to the next level. —Anna Claire
