Here is what I used:
- 1 banana
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut oil
Mix the eggs until blended, then add the banana and mix it all up until incorporated. I used my handy little Cuisinart immersion blender stick which was really fast and easy. You could also use a blender, or even just stir it up really well by hand. Add the vanilla and cinnamon and give it a final mix.
Heat the skillet over medium heat and add the coconut oil. Once the coconut oil is melted and hot, spread it around to coat the skillet. Use a sweet batter-pourer like I have, or just a scooper to pour a small amount of batter into the skillet to make silver dollar-sized pancakes. My large skillet could fit 4 at a time. HINT: the smaller they are, the easier they will be to flip. Once they start to bubble like regular pancakes, flip them and let them cook another minute. Remove them to a plate and continue with the rest of the batter.
I served these with strawberries and honey, but they are even delicious plain. It may take you a few tries to get the heat level right or to get the flipping down, but eventually they will turn out great. I am glad I tried this recipe and I will definitely be doing this again. Thanks to all those who hooked me up with this idea!
