Not the best pictures. It was an early morning experiment!
I was looking for pancake muffin recipes and came across a two ingredient "pancake" recipe. After making them, I've decided to call mine "bancakes."

I happen to love bananas. I think if I had to pick a favorite food it would be bananas. I put them in my green smoothies, oatmeal, pancakes, eat them with peanut butter and on top of yogurt and ice cream. But I've found that not everyone shares my love for bananas. If you don't like bananas, this isn't your recipe. But if you love them like I do, you'll dig these. They're actually more like a crepe than a pancake. There's no fluffiness. It's more like sponginess. They come out pretty thin and cook up quickly. I added a teaspoon of pumpkin spice to the mixture because it's my favorite spice. It worked really well. You can add any spice you fancy and top with syrup, fruit or even chocolate chips! I think if you were to blend it finer than I did, you could get them super thin and roll them like crepes.

You'll find quite a few of these pancakes on Pinterest (some with much better pictures than mine!). And once you're there, you'll likely get inspired to make other variations like this one. I'll be trying it tomorrow! So if you like/love bananas, you should give this a try. I ate mine plain, I didn't even use a fork. But like I said, these can be dressed up any way you like.

Adapted from here.
Made three cakes

1 Banana, ripe and mashed
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Pumpkin pie spice

Combine banana and eggs. Add spice and mix until well blended. Spray a pan with cooking spray (I used coconut oil) and heat to medium. Pour batter in pan as you would pancakes and cook for about a minute per side.
