How to Make Those 2 Ingredient "Pancakes" Everyone is Talking About (Banana and Egg)

How to Make Those 2 Ingredient "Pancakes" Everyone is Talking About (Banana and Egg)
Pancakes without the added calories and simple to make. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it kind of is.
The banana ice cream trend (whipped up frozen bananas) really did seem amazing, so I had high hopes for this trend, especially after seeing a picture of the "pancakes" all fried up to look just like real pancakes. One morning I had some extra time before the kids left for school, so I tried it.
I took one overripe banana and 2 eggs. First I mashed the banana in one container and whipped the eggs with a fork in another. Then I mixed the two ingredients together, as coconut oil melted in my frying pan. From experience, the more you whip the ingredients, the fluffier they will be. My first batch seemed a bit like a crepe.
Simple scoop any size amount (silver dollar or larger) onto the hot pan, wait about a minute for it to solidify and flip for 30 seconds more.
I prefer to enjoy my pancakes plane and the warm coconut oil definitely added to the flavor. It was good, but DEFINITELY not like a pancake. My kids enjoyed their pancakes with real maple syrup on top.
Although this recipe served three, my children are small and don't eat much. I would say this makes 2 small portions or one hefty one.
