  • Just tried these for breakfast - very good! I made them 1:1, but might try a two bananas to three eggs ratio next time as my youngest child doesn't like bananas. Although, she ate most of what was on her plate! I'm so impressed. The diet was meant for me, but already my 'carnivorous' children (15 and 7) are starting to give the veggies and fruit a try.

    • I actually mash my banana a little less now, and the pancakes seem a bit fluffier than usual. I use 2 eggs, and big banana, and 1/8 tsp of baking powder. Makes 4 good pancakes, 2 each for the kids in the morning. I've made them so often that they turn out great every time, and the kids love 'em.

      • I made this batter this morning using 1 egg and 1 banana, mixed it in my magimix blender and fried it in coconut oil in one thick pancake, used a plate to turn it and it stayed in one piece. Delish. I imagine some cinnamon would really set it off nicely. Thanks to OP

        • Bump! It's a meal which is primal-friendly, nutrient dense, simple, and sweet. I usually use a small blender with a 2:1 ratio, sometimes adding protein powder to alter definition. If I were in need to add more into them, I simply add some cinnamon.

          They seem to work scrambled/mixed as well, still retaining the same naturally sweet flavors.

          • I ruined one of these this morning, and it was still great!

            I used one medium banana and one extra large egg. I forgot to butter the pan. So, it wanted to stick, and burned slightly. It didn't hold together and basically ended up being scrambled banana-egg, with little burnt bits.

            It still tasted great!

            Next time, I will probably use two eggs and one banana, and butter the pan. If I have coconut oil, I may use that instead.

            • I gave this recipe to my vet because it is really great for an upset tummy, and my two dogs go nuts for them.

              • Finally making these again: 2 large bananas, 4 eggs, and maybe 1/8t of baking soda (not baking powder, since I don't have any and didn't wanna buy it just for this), blended in a food processor.

                Actually having next to no trouble flipping them this time. Cooking on slightly under med. heat, covered, for 2-3 minutes, then flipping and cooking for 2 more. Could be the extra eggs.

                  • Has anyone swapped out the banana for something else like yam or pumpkin

                    If so successful?

                      Is this sweet enough with the pumpkin?

                      Also I tried these and they fell apart while flipping.

                      • Bananas work because they contain mucilage--plantains moreso.

                        Other bases could use a bit of grated yamaimo, mung bean starch, acorn starch, psyllium, or xanthan gum as a cohesive.

                          Gonna try with roasted butternut squash tonight in place of bananas just for a change as I certainly love these with bananas.

                            What about gelatin as a base or perhaps a tab of coconut flour?

                            I mean if banana isn't used that is

                              There are several recipes for coconut flour pancakes, ya. Gelatin probably won't affect the baking properties.

                                I've tried gelatin with the banana and egg and it made a really funky burnt tasting pancake that the kids would not touch . Of course I am not the high lord of all that is gelatin, so it is possible I totally did it wrong. I simply added a couple of teaspoons to the banana egg mix while it was in the blender and then cooked it as normal.
