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.

I made these yesterday for breakfast - outstanding! They held together well, and tasted delicious! I drizzled a little bit of honey on mine as I didn't have any maple syrup. My 2 year old son loved them (his was plain though).
