    I tried this, and finally got them right... for me the key is using enough oil and letting them set firmly, as other people mentioned. Then they honestly look like a pancake. A tiny drizzle of maple syrup and omnomnom.

      ... fried egg in the middle and some protein: chicken liver pate, in my case.
      Everything in this thread, and this photo in particular, is simply wonderful. Thank you all, excuse me while I go make this delicious sounding miracle.

          eKatherine - i just came here to post that i toss in some cocoa powder and make "banana chocolate scrambled eggs." This keeps it sugar free. It works for me, but may not be for everyone.

            Thanks for this. I just made these for my daughter for a Friday treat (I am feeling terribly sorry for her because she takes after me in everything and now it seems that includes my wheat allergy andshe has agreed to come off wheat completely for a while after lots of constipation) and she was thrilled. I used two large eggs to one medium banana because I wanted think pacakes for folding. Presumably if I wanted to make thick fluffy pancakes for stacking I could just reduce the eggs? I made a chocolate sauce with dark choc (70%) melted and full-fat creme fraiche stirred in. Happy little pigling :-)

            Those of you who add almond flour? Is it much finer than ground almonds? If I didn't have almond flour would ground almonds do the same job?

              I added ground almonds. Worked a treat
              "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

              In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                you could aslo just add almond or other nut butter.

                  I like to put almond butter and real butter on them when they're done. I found the almond butter in the batter makes them harder to flip. It's always possible that I'm doing it wrong though.

                    Any starchy root veggie will work well for this. Parsnip pancakes are delicious.

                      You can make banana bread with just banana and egg too.


                      If anyone has done it with plantains, could you post pictures please? I'm curious to see how they look.

                        I made those for a second time over the weekend. Just used bananas, eggs and cinnamon. Fried them in extra virgin coconut oil this time. Came out great!! Will definitely try the sweet potato version as well.

                        My only gripe, I need to clean up my cook top and stuff. LOL

                          I just want to say thank you to everyone for this thread. My father has Alzheimer's but he's been wheat-free since Dec last year and it made a noticeable difference to his cognitive ability. Today was his 93rd birthday and because of this thread, he got a cake!!

                          Yes, that's a stack of banana and egg pancakes, fried in coconut oil and layered and topped with clotted cream!

                          He had no idea there was anything strange about it and he just enjoyed the treat. I suspect it was a bit heavy going as he didn't finish the whole piece, but it was a special occasion and I just wanted to be able to do the Birthday cake thing. Which we did, so thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

                            I finally made these this past weekend - one medium banana and two eggs. So delicious! They were sponger than a traditional pancake, but held together much better than any other primal/paleo pancake I've tried. And they were so delicious! They were pretty sweet as is. I didn't even want anything on top.

                            I'm thinking of making them a little thinner next time (maybe a dash of heavy cream?) and rolling up a few chocolate chips inside for DD, who is seriously missing her Nutella.

                              Not a fan of banana...especially overripe. I grated an apple, cooked it until mushy in butter. Mixed it up with 2 beaten eggs and cinnamon. I made one big pancake, cooked it until it was set. Turned it by sliding it off onto a plate, then flipping the plate over the frying pan. You could also make it in an oven proof skillet. Cook the pancake until the bottom was set, then finish it in the oven. You could even probably go one step more and separate the eggs. Beat the whites until stiff, fold in the yolks and fruit to make it fluffier.
