  • 5 boards matzo
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup vegan milk of choice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (or to taste)
  • dash of salt
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil (for frying)
  • For serving, fresh blueberries, pure maple syrup.


  • Break the matzo into one-inch chunks and place in a large bowl. Cover with warm filtered water and let sit while you make the banana mixture. About five minutes.
  • Peel the two bananas and place into the blender with vegan milk, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon. Puree until smooth.
  • Drain the water from the matzo and mix the banana cream into the matzo until a nice batter forms.
  • Heat about one teaspoon of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and smear with a spatula to coat.
  • Drop rounded spoonfuls (about 3” across) onto the pan, at least one inch apart. Cook until brown and crisp on the bottom. About one - two minutes.
  • Flip and cook until the other side is brown and crisp. About one - two minutes. Remove to a plate.
  • Continue steps 5 and 6, adding more oil to the pan if needed, until all of the batter is used.
  • Stack as many cakes as you desire onto a serving plate and garnish with fresh berries and pure maple syrup.
