    I will try these today, as I have everything on hand. Thanks for posting, Sandra!

    • Made these this morning,

      1 egg, 1 banana, vanilla extract, butter, and some cinnamon. Tasted great, ended up more like scrambled pancake. Will definitely be making again.

      • I've found that the largest banana in the bunch plus 2 large eggs makes them slightly thicker than a medium banana. I've been adding 1 Tbs of coconut flour lately, to make them almost as thick as conventional pancakes, but also makes them easier to break/crumble if you are not careful.
        If making just the banana/egg versions, you can flip them carefully by sticking the edge of the spatula under the edge of the pancake, lifting straight up (pancake sticks to spatula) until it clears the griddle/pan, then "rolling" it it down on the uncooked side.

          That's basically what I ended up doing--didn't work every time (sometimes it'd break almost in half during the process, just from gravity trying to pull it off the spatula) but it did help.

          • Size might make a difference too. I use a 11x11 griddle, and usually pour one in each "corner". About 4 inches diameter.

            • I tried them with 2 eggs, 1 ripe banana, vanilla, baking soda and lots of butter.

              FANTASTIC . .

              they flipped well and baking soda gave them a nice consistency. I have come to use baking soda now to my bacon and eggs . .

              • I had these for breakfast this morning and quite enjoyed them. They were quick and filling which is what I need, especially when I have to leave for work very early

                • Amusingly, if I call these pancakes my niece won't eat them. If I call them a banana egg omelette, she loves them. XD Kids.

                  • A did marks version. Fantastic!

                    2 banana
                    1 egg
                    1 almond butter

                    I also added egg whites for added protein.

                    • It's perfect! I have these about twice a week. I add frozen berries into the pancake after I pour it into the pan, I then top it with coconut cream after I serve it, delicious!

                      • These things surprised me. 2 eggs, 1 banana, 1/8tsp baking soda, cinnamon,. fried in buttah. I covered the skillet to let them set -- the first time I used just a tablespoon of batter for fear of them not holding together for flipping, but then I just poured in half of the batter. It made a regular-sized pancake and flipped perfectly.

                        Add a bit of peanut butter? Mmmm.

                        • I finally just ran out these other day. Same batch I talked about awhile back--ended up sticking them in the freezer because my husband wasn't interested and there were too many to eat immediately. Basically just pulled one out every once in awhile and microwaved it.

                          Think I'm gonna make another batch soon--it was kind of nice having those on hand. The only thing I think I'll do differently (other than make less because I ended up having to stand over the stove for like 2 hours last time, and that wasn't fun) is use the banannas before they turn brown--I wasn't crazy about that overripe-banana taste--but I think just having a banana taste would have been good. I also managed to overcook some on the outside, which also effected the flavor. They weren't bad, they just could have been better.

                          • If your mixture is too 'wet' to hold together or you're looking for more protein just add a scoop of whey protein. It acts incredibly well as a flour substitute in this dish.

                              No bananas, no sweetness, only buckwheat flour and water (and salt + one egg) but good meal when adding butter, cheese and ham.

                              • So, I made it again. This time, I used 2 bananas and 2 eggs, which resulted in about 3 servings (2 of which are in the freezer, yay).

                                IMO, it is MUCH better with ripe bananas, as opposed to overripe bananas. I also added a bit of cinnamon to the batter. Turned out delicious. Definitely going to keep making this.

                                Only problem is that I was so concerned about overcooking them, that some of them ended up UNDERcooked. I actually kind of like it, tho--it's kind of creamy, almost like banana pudding or something, in the middle. Certainly not how a pancake is supposed to be, but I still kind of liked it.
