Ba-na-na? Banana! Banana! You may have known how much Minions love bananas, but how about banana pancakes?

The mischievous Minions of Despicable Me fame are taking over the IHOP menu with limited-time summer food items inspired by Illumination’s new film, Minions: The Rise of Gru. The Minions have reimagined some IHOP staples in their own magical way, infusing it with bananas, cinnamon doughnut holes, and even more bananas.
