I found this recipe a few months ago and at first I thought there is NO WAY this thing is going to work… no way it’s going to be the same.. no way it’s going to taste good.. I expected it to be eggy or weirdly textured. Maybe the egg and banana wouldn’t stick together properly. But, it’s like a very soft-yet-dense pancake with a slight sweet banana taste. It’s really good! They’re more filling than the usual pancake and I don’t get that nasty stuffed feeling after eating these that I get with a normal pancake.
Since my family is into ‘no gluten, no bread’ or the paleo way of eating… we’ve been using this recipe quite a bit. Traditional pancakes definitely take way too long to make (IMO), and these are sweetened by nature (the banana) so let your stubborn routine go and enjoy something old.. with a new twist! 😉
(optional toppings) Honey + Butter, Syrup, or Jam.Yields 1 large pancake or 3 small ones.
- Preheat your pan with oil or butter on a medium heat.
- Put both of your ingredients in the blender (if you don’t have a blender you can use a fork to mash the banana and whip/beat the eggs in with it) and blend until it is foamy.
(If you’re using a fork to mash the banana, make sure it looks similar to this before adding in the egg. It’s hard to mash it up once the egg is added.)
- Once your pan is ready and making tiny cooking sounds, pour in your mixture and wait until it’s mostly cooked through before flipping. These are a little easier than flour-based pancakes to rip. After the first few will probably get the hang of it.
- Dress it up with your favorite preserves (jam), honeybutter or syrup and ENJOY! 🙂
