Banana Pancakes

The zucchini lasagna (no noodles) of 2012 and the spaghetti-squash pasta (no pasta) of 2013 were harbingers of the no-carbohydrate comfort trend that now dominate Pinterest. Despite the failures of very watery vegetable pasta, I am glad that I did not dismiss the bananas-in-the-place-of-everything trend that it spawned. Banana ice cream (literally a frozen banana in a cuisinart) is pretty great in the summer, but banana pancakes are my new favorite. These are so virtuous you might need to breakout the chocolate sauce just to bring some balance to your life.


The “Recipe”:

Mash a banana with two eggs.

If you are feeling fancy, add cinnamon, vanilla, and a tablespoon of some kind of flour (I used coconut).

Drop spoonfuls into a little hot oil (I used coconut) and flip according to basic pancake principles.


I topped mine with a little peanut butter.
